Hi everyone, I'm 18 weeks tomorrow and I've been peeing all day and not from a full bladder. It feels like baby is lower than he/she was. I thought they grew higher? ? Did this happen to anyone? During my first pregnancy I was peeing less by now... not more.

I've only been pregnant once, but I would guess that you may carry differently the second time as things got a bit stretched out the first time. During my pregnancy, I had to pee more often starting in the second trimester and it never improved until the baby was born.

My second child I carried so low I dont think he was ever above my belly button. Amazingly low.  My third was very high and I would wake up in the morning with him laying over my heart.  Each pregnancy I carried completly differently.  (Both above were boys - my only girl I carried "normally.")

Thank you for your responses! Well I'm hoping that the plus side of this carrying-low-pregnancy is that I'll have less heartburn in the third trimester... crossing fingers. :) :)
