This is my second pregnancy and I can only be about four weeks along at the most and I am already getting up in the middle of the night to pee!! I'm pretty sure with my first that this didn't happen until the second or third trimester.<br><br>
Is anyone else already getting up in the middle of the night to pee? Is there anything I can do to help - I don't want to be getting up this early in pregnancy! I already limit my water intake a couple of hours before I go to bed but any other ideas would be helpful.

It is just something you are going to have to deal with. I hate to say it, but until that baby isnt putting pressure your bladder, you won't find much relief.<br><br>
sorry to say <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>

Me too-- I normally have to pee sometime in the night, but I'm up 2 or 3 times now at not-even-5 weeks. The constant peeing at this stage is hormonal, not growing-uterus-related (our embryos are only like 1/10" now). It should stop for a while at some point before picking up again once the babies are bigger.<br><br>
Seriously annoying, though. I think I've peed about 10 times today.

I've been getting up once or twice every night to pee as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm glad I'm not alone. I'll just wait to see if I get a break between the hormones causing excessive peeing and the growth of the baby causing excessive peeing - lol

Yeah, especially when you factor in that we are supposed to drink more fluids and stuff when preggers.<br><br>

Me too, me too..... I used to be able to sleep through the night with a very full bladder. Now I have been getting up at least once in the night, weird. Glad I'm not the only one!

I'm so with you - I'm peeing 1-2x an hour! To top if off, I can't drink enough water, I'm seriously always thirsty and have been keeping a glass of water with me at all times. Not much fun!!

I've had to pee so much I've had to use store & mall bathrooms which for me is just insane. I have some germaphobe tendencies and my balancing isn't quite what it was. This is #4 for me, so I don't have much hope in this alleviating.

I'm at work and have to walk by everyone's offices to get to the bathroom - it's totally obvious. I've been 3 times already and that's with sitting here at my desk until I'm miserable! This is tough - I'm not planning to tell anyone at work until sometime next year!
