pressure on bladder

Yesterday I posted about having pain by where I wee and this morning I feel like I have horrible pressure on my bladder but I'm only 12 weeks today. Has this happened to anyone else before?

It could just be the uterus expanding and putting pressure on your bladder, but if you have pain then it could be an UTI, have you had that checked?

No not yet. I phoned the midwife and she went it could either be too much protein in my urine or a uti but because there's no bleeding or pain I shouldn't worry about it too much

I would be inclined to think it is a UTI, I have suffered from them chronically since I was about 14 and now get them without realising. When I was pg with my DS I had one and didn't notice until it spread to my kidneys which was awful.
You don't even need an appointment to get it checked out. Go to your GP surgery, ask at reception for a bottle and leave a sample with them this morning.

Not sure why you're posting the same question. Go to your GP!

I went to the doctors about the pain and it's not a uti. She went it's normal to have aches and pains so I was worrying over nothing apparently

Better that you checked over nothing rather than miss something that became serious. None of these pains tend to be mentioned in the pregnancy books! Glad it's nothing to worry about. Hopefully it'll just pass soon.

If it persists you could go and get another sample checked in a few days at the GP. I had what I thought were symptoms of a uti at 16 ish weeks but had a clear sample ( in fact 2) and the third time I went and got it checked, a week later, the infection showed up clearly. They said it had probably been 'brewing'! But I have also had non - uti related weird pains and feelings of pressure or urgency at various points. Annoying but seems to be normal

The doctor looked at me funny. I was like I'm a first time mum, I'm going to worry over a little back pain too so don't judge me lol
