  • Hi,

    How far long are you? When I got into my third trimester, I got up probably 5-7 times to pee too. I mean everything is pushing on your bladder.

    Did you get up frequently to use the bathroom when you weren't pregnant? I always pee throughout the night, so when I was pregnant and it got worse, I wasn't too concerned.

    Make sure you talk to the doctor, so they can do the diabetes test. I am assuming you haven't had it done yet. I want to say that was around 25 weeks, but I could be totally off!

  • maybe nothing. I was tested a month ago I am 33 weeks. I normally wake about 2-3 times a night, but 2 weeks straight I was waking up every 2 hours on the dot to pee I think it was more as I couldn't stay asleep so when I woke up I had to pee. I don't have gestational diabeties.
