Ok so this is kind of a wierd ? but I deff have to pee a lot more now. I am 8 weeks. Well I was watching the midnight showing of the avengers. It lasted two and a half hours. I had to pee half way through and didn't want to get up and I started hurting really bad in my like ovaries I guess? Is my baby going to be okay over one night of not peeing for 2 hours.

Yes your baby will be fine. From now on go and pee holding your pee can result in a UTI and i am sure other things.

Yeah. I get too lazy to get up in the middle of the night sometimes and I just hold it lol. You could get a UTI if you do it a lot but... One night won't hurt your baby

Doing that will cause you to have a UTI, which is dangerous during pregnancy, if left untreated. It can cause you to go into preterm labor, and potentially cause a miscarriage.

Baby will be fine. But it's not healthy to hold it period, pregnant or not. It can cause bladder infections and UTI's.

Baby will be just fine. But you gotta get use to going when you really dont want to tho. Since your only 8 weeks it might seem like you pee a lot more now but when your 30+ youll be living in the bathroom.

your baby will be fine. BUT.. soon you will start to have pain.. and even contractions from holding in pee and it wont be as ok as quick once you get further along.. plus you are damaging your muscles so when you are older you most likely can /will pee on yourself when you laugh sneeze etc.. get in the habit now.. trust me ... or you can wait till you hold it and out of no where you pee on yourself.. good luck :)

Holding it during pregnancy can give you contractions, and a UTI.

Ur baby will be fine but you really shouldnt hold your pee because you can get a uti very easy and uti can be dangerous during pregnancies... I know sometimes you cant help it but try to go as much has u can when you have too. Iv had 2 utis during this pregnancy and they are not fun!
