And so the middle of the night bathroom trips begin!

The past few days I have been getting up every night around 3am to use the restroom. How fun! I try not to drink too much before bed but it has also been so hot I need to stay hydrated. I know it will just get worse in the coming months...

It's good practice for when you have to get up in the middle of the night to feed baby!

Oh man...I lucked out in this dept...even towards the end I had many nights when I didn't have to get up! Probably because I wasn't very big...

How funny...I didn't think that was unusual! I guess I am pretty good at holding it in through the night. Which is usually a problem in the morning because I need to jolt to the bathroom right away! I always assumed the frequent urination came mostly in the third trimester.

Just the past few days?  I've been getting up to use the bathroom at least two or three times a night for MONTHS.  You get used to it, and like dmn said, I take it as practice.  Within the past few weeks, I've had difficulty with falling back asleep.  I usually am able to go to sleep within minutes of getting in to bed, but I'll sometimes wake up around 1 or 2 in the morning, get up to use the bathroom, and then I can't fall back asleep for a good hour or so.  I actually celebrated the fact that I was able to fall back asleep last night and not wake up until 5:30 a.m.

And as far as frequent urination, it usually starts in the first trimester, then when your uterus shifts in the second trimester it's not as bad, but then it comes back with a vengeance the third trimester (for obvious reasons).

I feel ya, dennys! I have to get up at least once a night too, and it's pretty much been like that since the first trimester, but I definitely don't feel like it's getting better! I look at it as practice for the baby. ;) haha

Ah ditto everyone else! It got a bit easier for me in the second/early third trimester. Now in my late third tri, I am up 3-4 times a night again! And I wish I could follow the advice on some blogs and stop drinking fluids after a certain time at night, but I am sooo thirsty all the time!! So I deal with the nighttime waking :-)

I'm so jealous when I read all of you who had/have it easy with night bathroom trip!!! I had to get up at least once a night since the beggining of my pregnancy...but NOW, in my third trimester, I'm up at least 3-4 times a night. Actually, whatever I drink or not, I feel a pressure on my bladder when I'm standing and I have to go to the bathroom. Don't know how my son is positioned but not really fun actually!

Oh man, the 1st Trimester was the worst. I would be getting up 3-4 times throughout the night! I remember thinking that it would only get worse in the 2nd/3rd trimesters. BUT, suprisingly I am in my 3rd Trimester & I rarely have to get up more than once (sometimes I dont have to get up at all). I am carrying really high, so I am sure that has something to do with it... But I am sure as he continues to add the LB's, I will have to get up more frequently. I am also getting SOOO thirsty because of the heat & extra energy, so its bound to happen!

Hehe :)  For sure!  Especially late 3rd tri. My time was like 4 am.  Now I pee at 4 am after feeding the baby, hehe.

I'm like Jackie - I lucked out here. There have only been a handful of nights I've gotten up to the bathroom. I'm still lucky that things rarely wake me up. The very occasional restless nights and last week my very first leg cramp.

Wow! Lucky you! I usually have to get up at least once or twice a night, and that started around 4 weeks! I'm 14 weeks now, and haven't had to get up the last few nights, but I think that was because we didn't get to bed until around midnight.
