On television and in the movies you always see hugely pregnant women running for the bathroom. Fact - you do often have to pee a lot in late pregnancy due to your baby dropping and additional pressure on your bladder. However, what those media snips don't prepare you for is all the peeing urges that can occur in early pregnancy. During your first month of pregnancy there's an initial increased urge to pee because all of a sudden your body has increased its body fluid volume so that your kidneys will work better at ridding your body of waste. This makes for a healthy pregnancy but an uncomfortable bladder. Additionally your uterus is growing quickly and putting extra pressure on your bladder. This combined with the increased fluids may mean more frequent trips to the bathroom. In good news, this "I HAVE to pee" sensation may never happen to you in early pregnancy and if it does it tends to go away for a while after your uterus rises. Until then try some kegels, lean forward when you pee (it helps), and stop drinking so much fluid late at night if peeing is keeping you from your beauty rest. Note, while peeing a lot is normal, painful urination is not normal. If it hurts to pee, call your midwife or doctor asap.
