  • Have you tried lying down? Some days are worse than others with pressure.

  • Lean forward when you go and more will come out. Its normal to have to pee alot when youre pregnant.

  • Have you asked your doctor about Pyridium? It's a pill that contains a dye that coats the bladder and urinary tract to relieve pain. It's a pregnancy category B. You can buy it over the counter in one of the types of Azo tablets, but you should ask your doc first. It will turn your pee orange, but it helps the pain a lot.

  • I have had 7 infections my pregnnacy and they give me macrobid everytime. I only get them when i am preg. My dr told me I wasnt allowed to take those OTC pills. I am 36weeks and have horrible pain and pressure I have had to go to the hospital it gets so bad not for pain meds cause I didnt get any either time but because I was worried about my baby. I have had days that i think i cant take this anymore but you do there is nothing you can do or the dr. except maybe narcotics for the pain but I wouldnt take them and most Dr.s wont give them to you. Try taking tylenol pm. I take it at night so i can sleep because when i move at night it hurts the most. Sorry I couldnt be much help.

  • You may have a UTI as well. If you have to pee a lot and dont feel like youre emptying all the way, then I would call my doc and ask...I got UTIs a lot when I was pregnant.
