I was tested for infection and there is none, but I can't seem to empty my bladder. I pee a little bit when I go to the bathroom but I have to go right back in 5 minutes. I am only 7 weeks so I know its not the baby. Can anyone help? I'm miserable.

Learn forward while you pee.

I saw this crazy ER show where a woman only had one kidney and she got a kidney stone lodged into it so she couldn't pee no matter what she did. Haha. Probably not happening to you, but..


No, there's just a lot of bloating and fullness that occurs within the first few months of pregnancy. Also, an urge to pee without actually peeing is one of the first signs of a bladder infection, which are also common during pregnancy.
