Where does all this wee come from?

I'm 35 weeks and up every 2 hours throughout the night desperate for a wee. And it's not just a quick tinkle, it's loads and loads cart-horse style blush. I'm not drinking more than usual, and yes I know babe is squashing my bladder but seriously - where does all the wee come from?!

I sympathise HHoB, although I'm the polar opposite it seems! I'm 32 weeks and up every 2 hours throughout the night (and day) desperate for a wee - but when I get there, there is only the tiniest tinkle. Most pathetic!

And yes, I'm drinking loads!

Rock backwards and forwards on the toilet when you wee, helps to empty your bladder completely.

But you look a bit mad.

HBofB- likewise on all symptoms!

I put it down to fluid retention during the day, then once I am relaxed and horizontal, it all has to come out. The warmish weather doesn't help with retaining water.

oh god I'm glad it's not just me! I'm getting up 2 or 3 times in the night at the mo and I'm only 18 weeks! As DH keeps telling me - better to be widdling all the time than be suffering with sickness eh!

But I swear this baby is spending his/her time dancing on my bladder hmm
