  • It's probably because at 37 weeks your baby might have dropped. Which means it's sitting lower. I had this problem too. The baby's weight might be putting more pressure on your insides. I had to go more frequently, but went little at a time. It will ease up after you have your baby. Congrats :) You are almost there!

  • You can get into a hands and knees position for a bit to take the pressure off the bladder and that might move the baby just enough to allow you a more satisfying pee. But expect to have to pee much more often in smaller volumes.
