I am 37+ wks, sorry if this is TMI but i actually cannot stop weeing, today i am running back and forth to the bathroom literally every 5 - 10 mins feeling like i am going to wet myself, there is sometimes nothing but a trickle, but my bladder still feels full, is this normal pressure from the baby or not ?

are you sure it is urine?

pop on a pad, and you can tell the difference. Twill be sweeter straw like if it's not.

Oh it's awful isn't it? Go to see the midwife, it MIGHT be an infection, but does sound miserably normal]#

I was running to the loo every 20 mins just before dd was born. It could be that the head is fully engaged now and pressing on your bladder. Best to get checked out though.

May be UTI/cystitis hope you get it sorted .

Am like this now! baby is fully engaged and i think a shoulder is pushing on my bladder. would go to the m/w just to have your urine checked though.

thanx for all the messages, went to the birth ctre's triage unit this morning after a really sleepless night, they confimed that it is the baby, he/she is 3/5 engaged and so very low down , right on my bladder, atleast there's no infection, the M/W said baby will probably come a bit early as is so low, I hope so cos this peeing every 10 mins is unbearable sad
