Why do I have to pee so much!?!?!

OMG - I'm about to be totally overwhelmed by my bladder. I literally have to pee every 10-20 minutes. I pee at least once an hour through the night. And I'm just 2 days shy of 7 weeks!? I don't remember being like this , this early along when I was preggo w/ DD?! Is this normal!? In a way, I hope not.

Mama, it's the increase in blood volume that occurs that's causing it, obviously baby is not big enough yet to push on it. I found that I had to pee more in the first 10 weeks than I even have to now .

If you're drinking as much water as they recommend, it would make sense for you to have to pee more. I have tried to focus on drinking a lot earlier in the day so I don't have to drink so much in the evening so that I can sleep a bit more, and that seems to help with the waking up to pee.
