I'm now 10 weeks pregnant and for the last week I've been having to get up about 3 times during the night for a wee. I'm not having to go any more than usual during the day. Is this normal? Have read about pregnancy diabetes and have started to worry
Thanks for reply. I had my 1st midwife appointment last week. She took bloods and urine sample and haven't heard anything so assuming all is ok. Got Drs appointment next week so will double check with him that they came back ok. My 12 week scan (although I'll be 13 weeks) is in 3 weeks time so I will mention it then if I'm still the same. Hopefully all ok and it's just another pregnancy symptom
Honestly you will end up convincing yourself you have about a hundred different things by the end of it all.
I was convinced I had pre eclampsia because I had such swollen feet and ankles. My MW laughed at me (in a nice way) when I told her my worries because in reality they were just mildly swollen from the summer heat and carrying extra weight.
In the first trimester you need to wee more because of hormonal changes and as the pregnancy progresses the baby/uterus puts pressure on the bladder. Some people find it eases up in the second trimester (not me lol).
Hi I had this as well! In weeks 8-12 I was getting up 3 or more times everynight. I'm now at 14 weeks and getting up twice a night on average. I do find I need to go more in the day as well. I think it's just the bladder has less room than it did before.
It’s completely normal and down to the hormone changes. It might get better in the second trimester, before returning with a vengeance in the 3rd! I think it’s natures way of prepping you for a newborn
I'm 12 weeks and peeing 4-5 times a night. Luckily I can fall back to sleep pretty much immediately but it does leave me feeling groggy in the day. Trips to the toilet haven't increased during the day though, I read somewhere it was something to do with lying down.
I had Pre eclampsia with my first and gestational diabetes with my second - midwives are amazing at picking up the various ailments and with both I had very little idea beforehand. Ironically I needed to pee more in the first pregnancy where I didn’t have GD, but it’s not that big a deal- it goes away literally as you give birth so even if the worst came to the worst I wouldn’t worry
I've always had to get up in the night to wee anyway, at least once. But since I've been pregnant it's been a whole different ball game. It went to about 3-5 times a night in the first trimester and has carried on throughout, I'm 39+5 now and was up 7 times last night. I go more in the night then I do all day 🤷🏽♀️
