I'm a 7 1/2 weeks and ever since I was 4 weeks I wake up in the middle of the night to pee at least 4-5 times. I can't sleep through the night. I'm not drinking an obsessive amount of water before bed or anything. But i wake up every 2hours and I have to pee sooooooooooooo bad. During the day it's pretty normal. I do have to pee more often but not as often as I do at night. Was just wondering why it's so much worse at night this early in the pregnancy?
Quoting ** First Time Mama to be!:
It's mostly because the amount of blood in your body increases dramatically when you get pregnant, which leads to a lot of extra fluid getting processed through your kidneys and ending up in your bladder. Eventually, you may also feel pressure on your bladder from your growing uterus.
You may notice that you need to get up to pee more often during the night in particular. That's because when you lie down, some of the fluid that you retained in your legs and feet during the day makes its way back into your bloodstream and eventually into your bladder.
