I pee SO MUCH. LonghornBabe 3 kids; 2 angel babies; Fort Worth, Texas 1394 posts

...and its incredibly annoying.
Is there any quick fix for that? lol
I'm really early on, week 5, so I know its normal to be peeing more often...but seriously...I make sure not to drink anything the hour before I go to bed, and I still wake up every hour or two to pee.

It bothers me SO MUCH, because it takes me forever to get to sleep. I'm already exhausted, but now its twice as bad because as soon as I've gotten to sleep, I wake back up to pee.

Is there anything I can do, or do I just have to wait this out?

I thought I might have a UTI, but my test came back negative...

I thought it was funny that there is something the size of a grain of rice in there and I was still getting up to go pee three or four times a night. I was fine after about 8 weeks and then it started up again at 30 weeks. I never found a fix for it, it just went away on its own, I guess

There's not much you can do. They say you stop peeing so much in your second trimester but I'm almost in my third and still pee a lot. It sucks lol.

Welcome to the wonderful world full of those annoying pregnancy quirks. Try not drinking any water a couple hours before bed. Empty your bladder right before you hit the sheets. I still woke up atleast twice in the night every night. I remember once I got really excited that I slept 6 hours straight lol.

Yeah, 4 hours straight feels pretty good to me...I have a pretty small bladder to begin with, but this is just ridiculous! lol
I'll try cutting back on liquids earlier, and I usually do go right before I go to bed.
I just wish it was easier for me to fall back to sleep, that's my biggest issue.
Stupid pee.

I thought it was bad in the first trimester, but I never imagined what the third trimester had in store. I even forgot about the first trimester peeing during the second, but I seriously hit 33 weeks and it's a nightmare. I thought I had a UTI, but it turns out she's just head down and snuggling with my bladder.

I'm a waterholic and, no joke, had to pee four times within an hour at work today. Embarrassing! I also get up no less than five times during the night to pee.
