Frequent Urination during Pregnancy
Frequent urination is one of the most common pregnancy symptoms that women experience. In fact some women will experience frequent urination and they may not even know they are pregnant yet. There are a couple of reasons for frequent urination during pregnancy.
Frequent urination happens during early pregnancy, as soon as 6-7 weeks, because of the increased blood flow while pregnant. The extra blood leads to extra fluid being processed through the kidneys and into the bladder. The more fluid that accumulates in your bladder, the more you have to void.

Later in pregnancy, frequent urination is caused by the weight and pressure that your expanding uterus puts on your bladder. When a woman becomes pregnant and her uterus starts growing bigger and getting heavier, it puts pressure on the bladder, causing the woman to not be able to hold as much fluid in the bladder. This results in the woman having to void more often. During the third trimester especially is when the extra trips to the bathroom become more frequent. Some of the time, the way the baby is lying in the uterus has the most effect on how often a woman has to go to the bathroom. During the last couple of weeks of pregnancy, a baby's head may have dropped and may constantly be putting pressure on the woman's bladder, making the bathroom a woman's best friend for those few weeks.
Also, pregnant women are advised to drink more water for the health of their baby and themselves. Drinking more fluids throughout the day also leads to more frequent urination. Do not be tempted to cut back on your water and fluid intake, as this may lead to dehydration which can be really serious to you and your baby.
Don't be tempted to hold in your voids for a long period of time. This may lead to bladder and urinary tract infections which are not good for pregnant woman. Urination helps to get rid of the toxins in the body and when you hold urine in, the toxins are held in the bladder and the urinary tract for a longer period of time, making the chances of infection to increase. If at any time it burns when you pee or you have lower back pain when you pee, then this may be an indication of a bladder infection. See your doctor right away to properly take care of it.
Frequent urination during pregnancy may be one of those pregnancy symptoms that you just have to deal with for those 9 months. Most women report that after they give birth the frequent urination goes away.

The entire time I thought I was having a boy....I just knew it. I was set to get my 18 week ultrasound and was having a hard time controlling myself...I found fortune baby gender predictor test and decided that I would take a shot. The gender prediction results came back surprising me with a girl! At that point, I flipped my thoughts and completely collected myself for a girl! Sure enough, that is what she is! Thanks....
Hello. I just wanted to thank you for the accurate prediction. When we were trying to conceive we did all the 'tricks' to ensure we would have a boy. I was so anxious to find out that as soon as possible that I visited your web site when we were only 1 month pregnant. Your site told us we were having a boy and we were so excited. Of course you always have those people that don't believe it till they see it, but we were pretty confident we had done everything right. Well we had our ultrasound on the 21st and it is definite we are having OUR BOY!!! We do plan on having another one so I will definitely be visiting your site to ensure our last one is a girl/. Thank you so much...and keep up the good work!!!
I just wanted to say how amazed I am at how correct your gender predictor results are. I am 23 weeks pregnant and purchased a test back in September. It said boy and I really thought that I was having a girl. I wanted to have my girl first but I had 2 scans and you were right it is a Boy! I had two friends do this as well and it was correct for them. My sister also recently did it and it says boy so we are waiting to hear the results. I have purchased the 4 year prediction in hopes for a girl next it says not until July 2009. Thanks Again:)
You were right, thank you, we got our baby boy, after 3 girls. My wife still can not believe it. Thank you again.
