: VENT: potty breaks!

OMG - I think I'm peeing at least every hour, maybe even every 30 minutes now.  Last night I got up 4 times to use the bathroom, that's a new record.  I might as well just set up a bed in the bathroom.  The worst part is I'm thirsty, so I keep drinking water! :P

haha, I think we all know how that feels! Drinking the water is best though. I usually get up during the night about 4 times too...have ever since I got pregnant. The water helps with contractions, so keep drinking! I'd rather have to pee a lot than have contractions! Also, going to the bathroom a lot helps with the contractions as well...the bladder presses on the uterus when it's full and that can cause you to have more contractions. The worst part about contstant restroom breaks is it's so hard to sit myself up with this big belly! speaking of...headed to bathroom now lol
