Frequent Urination (needing to pee often)


Woman urinating

What causes it?

The urge to pee (urinate) is very common during the first three months of pregnancy. It is also strong in the few weeks before the baby is born. It happens because your uterus is pressing against your bladder (the sac that holds pee). This leaves only a small space in your bladder, and you need to empty it (or urinate) more often.

What can I do about it?

• It is good to drink plenty of fluids when you are pregnant, so do not reduce the amount you drink during the day.
• If you find you have to get up many times a night to go to the bathroom, try to drink less during the evening.

What if none of this helps?

• Don’t worry. This may annoy you, but it is a normal part of being pregnant.

• If you have any pain or burning when you pee (urinate), check with your doctor. You may have a bladder infection.
