Constant urge to go to the loo

Probably all normal but just thought I'd ask for advice
I'm 35+5 weeks pregnant & the last week or so I seem to be on the loo every 30 mins or so
I've swapped to just drinking water instead of pop to see if that helps - it hasn't

When I do go , I expect to peeing like a race horse but sometimes it's just a little bit. I still sit on the loo for a minute or so to see if anything else comes out but very rarely does
The last couple of days , I've noticed wet patches in my underwear , I've put pads on & it's definitely urine - embarrassing ! 😂

Along side this , I'm getting intense pressure in my vagina / cervix , sometimes it's so bad I have to stop what I'm doing until it passes & seems to be worse at night along side slightly painful braxton hicks.
Feels like a burning sensation / period pains

I was checked for a UTI at my last appointment last week & it came back clear

Is it just the weight or baby & one of those lovely things we must go through or something sinister ?

Same here, hopefully someone will come along and enlighten us. I’m 35 weeks too and starting to feel very uncomfortable, worrying that we have another few weeks to go yet....

@BattenburgBerry yes I'm also starting to get very uncomfortable too

I'm glad I've took early maternity

I'm the same! It lasts through the night too confused

35+0 here and I'm the same, it's not as uncomfortable as the pressure under my ribs though 😭
