Leaning forward to pee...

This may seem odd but does anyone else have to lean forward to pee, Im pretty sure its just because the baby is so low but I will feel like I have to pee but it wont come out unless I lean forward. I was just curious if this has ever happened to anyone else in their 3rd trimester.

  • With my first pregnancy I definitely leaned forward to pee in the 3rd trimester.

  • Yes it is normal. Doctors actually tell you to do this if you are having a hard time because you are peeing so much. It really helps empty the bladder.

  • lol yea, i do the lean forward aswell. i dont have much of a problem peeing, but it always gives that extra push in the flow lol. and its almost as if i can feel my bladder emptying and feeling the liquids going down lol.

  • Haha thank you for posting this! I am almost 35 weeks and I have been having the hardest time peeing! It feels like I have to go really bad but when I'll sit down to go, hardly any will come out! I'm gonna try the lean forward thing next time. Maybe it'll keep me from going to the bathroom 3495378 times a day! Haha thanks ladies!
