I’m peeing a lot more than usual – could I be sign that I’m pregnant?

Pregnancy tests say I'm not pregnant (I'm 8 days late), and i've been peeing a lot the last 2-3 days, and that's not normal for me at all. It could be anything, but I'm just wondering when does that usually start happening? Is it just a few weeks or longer after conception?

  • For the three times I was pregant it was when the baby got big enough to press on my bladder. Then it was nonstop. Give it a few more days then try the test again.

  • You could have a UTI infection causing you to pee alot. Usually when the baby is large enough to press on your bladder is when you have to go pee more.

  • I'm 5 weeks along and have been peeing constantly since last Sunday. It's totally normal during the beginning of pregnancy. It's the hormones and such. Dont worry about a UTI unless you have burning along with it.

  • I was reading online just now that it could be an early symptom, frequent urination. I just don't remember it from my first pregnancy (my only one). I'm sure it's not a UTI... I've had one before and it was horrible...painful, bleeding, and constant urge to pee like every 20-30 minutes and sometimes only a drop would come out. I'm actually going a lot and plenty is coming out. It could be anything though.

  • For me, i didn't pee frequently until i was farther along, like 7 months or so when the baby puts more pressure on your bladder.

  • usually it takes 12 days to get accurate results I thought. Dollar stores carry pregnancy tests. blood work is always conclusive.

  • could be a UTI or bladder infection... best thing to do is to go get it checked out by a doc.. he can do a test for all three with one pee sample...
