Urinating causing contractions.. am I the only one?

So it seems like EVERY.TIME I go pee (and let's face it, that's A LOT these days ) that it causes Braxton Hicks contractions.

I'll go pee, my tummy will get hard, then of course that makes me have to pee some more. Then I'll get another contraction or two after standing up, which makes me feel like I need to get some more out. This is almost every time.

I do not have any symptoms of a UTI or Kidney problems, so I am confident that it's not that.... just squeezing the bladder causes contractions. LOL

Anyone else?
God bless!

Re: Urinating causing contractions.. am I the only one?

I get braxton hicks contractions that wake me up, telling me I need to pee, but never had them during/after peeing. The crazy things that pregnant bodies do!

I get them pretty much every time I pee as well, so annoying!

This happened with my most recent pregnancy too, for about 4-6 weeks at the end.

I get them every time I get up from the toilet, and often when I get up from any seat.
