Ok, so I thought waking up twice a night was a lot. How much are you peeing when you go that often. You may have some sort of bladder issue that is being agravated by pregnancy. I have intersticial cystitis (sp?) which flares up every now and then. When it does I feel like I always have to pee, am unable to empty my bladder all the way (which makes me also have to go more often as I never have an empty tank), leak occasionally, and have some pain when pressue is applied when it gets a bit worse. It started prior to my first pregnancy and has revisited me a several months to a few months at a time a few times since diagnosed. Right now I'm doing fine but, I'm sure as I et more pregnant (currently only 15 or 16 weeks) it may flare up again. There are medications to control this issue. They apparently help with the urgency issues (with this condition the muscles that allow you to pee will contract and release spontaniously) but, I didn't personally want to medicate. It eventually fades away on it's own... although annoying while it lasts.
Can you feel muscle contractions as you are going about your day? Is that what makes you feel like you have to pee?
Just so you know, this could be quite a few things. There could be something other than your baby pressing on your bladder (ovarian cyst, enlarged organ, intestinal irratation) making you feel like you need to go, UTI, bladder infection, the condition I have, etc, etc. It could simply be, as weird as this may sound, "all in your head"
. I don't mean that in any sort of rude way, I simply mean that sometimes with pregnancy we tend to focus on things and worry, thus maing them worse or seem wrose. Perhaps you overthink having the urge to pee thus making your body resond by telling you that you do have to. Who knows. If you truely know it isn't just over worry on your part then I'd go see a doc to make sure it isn't some sort of medical issue beyond the annoyances of pregnancy. It is probably something simple but, I'm sure you want to know so you can get some relief!
