I'ma first time mom, 18 wks and I understood that the frequent peeing thing would get better during 2ndTri. Not for me! At night I get up every hr and a half - 2 hrs. It's killing my sleep not to mention I'm having a hard time sleeping on my side(w. lots of pillows.) I tried to stop drinking at 8, 7, or even 6pm, but it doesn't really help. I'm still up a 3-4 times a night. (11pm-8am) It's the same during the day. Is this okay? Is it too much? Any suggestions ?

It could be signs of a urine infection that needs to get checked out - especially with you limiting what you drink at night.

Joy - I am exactly the same - peeing every 5 mins ! I have also tried the stopping drinking early evening and didnt work. So i am up 5 /6 times a night.... However it turns out that the babies feet are downwards the baby is right on my bladder still, I watch it yesterday give me a good few kicks. I have a scan once a month and its moved into this position since last month.I have my unrine and bloods done aswell once a month and and dont have a urine infection. I think im just stuck with it for the time being. Do you have any stinging when you pee or any other signs of infection - if not you might just be like me?

Hey ladies - I am right there with you. I am 16+ weeks, and wake up almost routinely at midnight, 2am, 4am and 6am to pee! I, too, try to cut out the liquids early, but I am also trying to stay hydrated with at least 80 oz of water a day (I am pregnant with twins and require more). It's hard, but worth it in the end....just remember that! :-) kazforest is right - your baby's position, may have a lot to do with it. This is my 4th pregnancy, and I have always been a chronic pee-r! So, I hope it subsides soon, but if it doesn't, just remember, it won't last forever!

Thanks ladies... There is no burning or anything. I have had a constant dull ache in my front right side, but it's not severe. I just had my blood and urine tested last week, hopefully it's just the baby and maybe it'll move soon!

I have had this problem for the last two days :( I am still only going once at night between 2-4 a.m. but during the day I go almost every 1 1/2 hrs- regardless of how mucj i drink. this has been for the last two days- Although i don't feel my baby- (well i think i do but the books say its toooo early (15 wks today) ) I feel heavier one one side than i did before so I think it is positioning- last night I couldn't sleep at all b/c i felt like a bulge when I laid on my side. I really think I am feeling my baby and I could have sworn i felt a sublte kick maybe he/she will move over and give my bladder a rest :)

Im 24 weeks, and I've had the same problem. I thought it would get better when i got futher along, but i still wake up between 4-6 times a night to pee. I dont even drink anything before bed, where is this pee coming from! very annoying, definitely disturbs my sleep

I don't think it's a UTI. I didn't pee much more than usual during the first trimester but I can't pee often enough now. Of course my water intake has also increased a lot. I have had trouble sleeping, too. It's pretty normal and, unfortunately, will probably get worse.

Oh and I'm 20 weeks with my first also.

I'm 36 weeks and that started for me in my 2ndtri also. It never has gone away, but now I'm so dead tired I only get up twice a night. Which is good for sleep, but when I wake up for those two potty runs I feel like I'm in labor. I basically just lived with it.
