Update in first post...Has anyone had problems with pee'ing?

UPDATE: I ended up going to the ER last night. It got that bad. I could only get a couple of drops out at a time, but my bladder was very hard. So, they ended up giving me 1 liter of fluids and took blood. After the liter of fluid was almost gone, I tried to pee...I only got about a teaspoon out. There was NO bladder infection, so they cath'ed me when the fluid was all gone. There was a ton of urine! The Dr. on call said I was dehydrated. I didn't buy it for a sec. I had been drinking water all day and only getting *tiny* amts out.

My mom had done some research on the internet and found many pregnant women that had the same problem as I did also had a tilted urterus, making it very difficult for urine to come out. Apparently, going to the bathroom as soon as you feel like you need to helps. The only other thing is time and the baby getting bigger and moving out of the pelvic region.

I don't want to go through that again! I felt like I was getting prepped for labor....



I'm 9 weeks and over the last few days I've been having trouble with pee'ing. It isn't all day long, but usually in the early am and later pm. It feels almost like where the urine comes out around my bladder is really small, only allowing a little to come out. Kind of like I'm constipated, but with urine (sorry, tmi!). I just don't feel like it all comes out when it's like this.

I don't *think* it's a UTI because it only happens at certain times of the day and there's no burning sensation. My first appt with my Dr. isn't until Nov. 12th. Should I call and ask the nurse? Could my uterus be pushed up against my bladder making it hard for the urine to come out? Ack, the problems of pregnant women!

i also have this problem sometimes and think it has to do with what you said or something similiar. kinda tmi but i find if when you are on the toilet peeing and no more comes out shift positions(raise a leg, lean forward etc) and most times more will come out.

I have found this helps too. I just try to change positions-usually I lean forward as far as I can. I had this with my son too and never did have a UTI. I guess it was just the way my uterus was pressing on my bladder. HTH.

At least I know that I'm not alone. It's been bad all day today so tomorrow, I'm calling my Dr. office.

I've had this too, but mostly when I don't run to go pee right away, like I held it for a bit an then it's kinda hard to pee!

Good luck pregnant Mommas!

Re: Has anyone had problems with pee'ing?

Just wanted to chime in with everyone suggesting to move around to different positions. I'm 10 weeks, and I've found that it's easier to pee and more comes out when I lean slightly to the left. I don't understand the anatomical factors at work, but whatever helps! I hope you get some relief, too!

You can add me to this list, but I've been having this the majority of this pregnancy! I will shift and move and more comes out and I'm still back in there ten minutes later peeing a fullish bladder, it is crazy. My silver lining is that I know I'm well hydrated!

Re: Has anyone had problems with pee'ing?

Mama, I don't want to scare you but this is a sign of an incarcerated uterus. I would definitely keep an eye on this and get additional monitoring although it can be hard to find a provider who is familiar with the condition. This happened to me with my third birth and led to the death of my daughter. If the uterus is tilted back (in my case both retroverted and retroflexed) it can completely block off the bladder as the baby gets bigger. It started out with just difficulty urinating and then led to complete urinary retention and eventually all the blood supply to the baby was cut off. I've spoken to many women who have lost babies this way so I couldn't sit by and not respond here.

I went to the ER over and over again, got cathed repeatedly and eventually they just put a foley catheter in and sent me home with a pee bag for weeks...meanwhile they never did anything about the problem and my daughter died. I found out she was gone when I went to my big 20 week ultrasound to find out the sex. Finally the daughter I had always longed for but no heartbeat.

It happened again in the next pregnancy but I fought hard to get help from someone who knew what to do. I had to go under spinal anesthesia so that they could go in and reposition my uterus to free it from trapped under my sacrum. They put in a pessary to hold it up until it was too big too fall down on it's own. I had that done at 12 weeks. It worked and everything was fine after that. Had my uncomplicated homebirth and a healthy baby boy! So if you do end up with this condition, it is totally treatable!
