How often did you/do you pee when pregnant with twins?
I have reactive hypoglycemia, so I pee a lot typically. But I'm peeing SO MUCH MORE than I ever thought I would (I'm 21 weeks now). Much more often than other pregnant women (who are all only carrying one). I have no idea what the 3rd trimester holds for me, bathroom-wise.
I'm definitely getting enough fluids -- between 3-4 litres of water alone, in addition to other liquids (primarily milk, but sometimes juice -- orange or unsweetened cranberry -- or Gatorade), each day. There's no pain when going and everything's clear. When I feel like I have to go, it's because I really do have to go.
I was at lunch the other day with a friend who is three weeks ahead of me to the day. In 2 hours, she didn't pee once and didn't even pee before leaving the restaurant, and she drank two beverages while there. I went 4 times while she was still there and once more before leaving.
At night, there are times when I have a 1.5-hour bladder and times when I have a 2-hour or 2.5-hour bladder. But this is only after I've already gone to sleep. GETTING to sleep is difficult because I feel like I can never fully empty my bladder enough to relax and head off to dreamland. One night, recently, I swear I went 6 times in an hour -- just trying to empty things enough to go to sleep.
And I can't limit my fluid intake because I'm too thirsty! I've never had a problem getting enough fluids because I'm just so thirsty! The amount I drink sates me, and isn't worrisome at all. It's the bathroom trips that are slightly disconcerting.
I'm trying to tell myself that this is probably normal for a hypo mom carrying twins, but since I've never been pregnant, nor carried twins before, I'd like a little reassurance.
