<p>I really don't. This is insane! I'm constantly going to pee. Even last night when I was working out I went to go use the bathroom, came back and then not 2 minutes later I coughed and, well, let's just say I'm VERY glad I put on a pantiliner before I left. <img alt="wink1.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/wink1.gif"> So I went to the bathroom again and I swear it was like I never went in the first place! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's as if the massive amount of water I'm drinking is just flowing right through me. This is really crazy. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, well, I am really, REALLY thankful that this is about the worst part right now! Sure beats the craziness of the first half or so of this pregnancy. <img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif"></p>

<p>Ugh I hear you! Every day before I walk my son to school I go pee. Then I get all bundled up, get both kids bundled up, get outside in the cold, and HAVE TO PEE. Yet I still have to get him to school and get dd and I home and unbundle her somewhat then RACE to the bathroom. I hear you on being thankful that it's the worst thing I can complain about, tho I have also been known to complain about lower back pain, pubic bone pain and a horrible, painful, swollen varicose vein in my groin...</p>

<p>I am shocked by all of the nighttime peeing.  I don't drink a drop after 7pm yet i still have to drag myself out of bed every couple of hours all night long.  Not a fan!</p>

<p>yeah it's really crazy. I think i wake up to pee more often than i'll ever have to wake up to nurse the newborn once it's born.  I'll be getting more sleep after the baby is born lol.</p>

<p>The midwife suggested this little trick to me:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>After you've peed as much as you can, stand up, move/lift/readjust your belly for a minute, and then sit down again and lean forward to try to get a little more out.  Sometimes it helps me empty some more and then I don't feel like I have to go again ten minutes later.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just had to buy some full-panel maternity pants because I'm starting to feel like the ones with the low waistbands are right on my bladder.  Next stop - mu-mu.  </p>

Haha, if it were me I would just run to the bathroom with my DD and get her unbundled in there. <img alt="orngtongue.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif"></p>

<br><br><p>This is why I gave up on no water. I now keep a water bottle near me. I don't drink a whole lot but just enough to keep my mouth from being so dry that I wake up anyway.</p>

Hahaha! That would be nice, except it takes me more than 30-60 seconds to zombie latch the baby (and I didn't figure out how to nurse while laying down until DS was 6 mos) but it only takes about 30-60 seconds to zombie pee. </p>

<br><br><p>I do that and I swear it does me no good. <img alt="greensad.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> Plus I have some weird pushing thing. I lost my last one so all pregnancy I've been kind of paranoid and, especially in the beginning, I didn't want to "push" when I used the bathroom because I felt like I would just push the baby right out. <img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/huh.gif"> Silly, I know, but it still freaks me out. So instead of pushing to make sure the extra pee was out I just started doing some wiggle/adjust. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><span><img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"> Mu-mu! That would be really comfortable right about now. There are a LOT of clothes that I can't wear or I have to pull them way up or way down because they put too much pressure on my belly. There's one pair of PJs that really is not tight AT ALL and for some reason where the waist band comes I just cannot stand it. It makes it hard to breathe. I guess baby doesn't like that particular spot and moves up or something. And then if they're in a different spot I think baby gets annoyed and starts wiggling on my bladder. </span><img alt="irked.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif"></p>

<p>I find my pee needs vary.  I think the baby is still changing positions enough that sometimes I have plenty of space for my bladder, which is pretty large, and other times I have almost no space at all.</p>

<p>Peeing is really frustrating! I feel like I go all the time and if I sneeze...well, I have to change my undies usually. <span><img alt="orngtongue.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"></span> What's really annoying is sitting down, getting all comfy and then having to pee. For whatever reason, this baby sits on my bladder when I sit, so I almost always have to jump back up after I sit down and rush to the bathroom. Thankfully, I don't get up too much in the night, only once or twice. If I get up more than that, I generally end up awake for an hour or two staring at the ceiling.</p>
