Shhh...don't wake the sleeping beasts

Here’s pretty much how my mornings are going for the past few weeks. Wake up at 5am, have to pee soo soo badly, bladder full to the brim. Yet I lay there and I fight it. I don’t want to get up b/c if I get up the Wonder Twins (Mushi and Tai) get up and that means I have to traipse downstairs and out into the yard with them and stand there for 10 min while I beg them to please come back in the house as you’ve already peed on 20 things. So, I lay there and I hold it and hope I can fall back asleep. When I should really just get up b/c the 15 mins I will be up will be less than that time it takes me to fall back asleep due to full bladder. Things make no sense at 5 in the morning. I have successfully been holding it until 7am, but I really need to stop! It’s amazing how even in early pregnancy you have to pee so much. I thought that only happened once the baby started sitting on your bladder, but boy was I wrong. I read in my book – Exercising Through Pregnancy – that as soon as you are pregnant all of your bodily functions just go into overdrive. You sweat more, you breath more, you pee more, you sleep more, you eat more, etc. Crazy.

Yes you pee more. It is so annoying! I get up at 6 am to go to work. So my damn bladder wakes me up at 4 to go pee. Then I cant sleep again. I think weeks 9-12 were my busy pee nights. I was up at least 2 to 3 times. Now at 23 weeks I get up once a night. Just make sure hubby puts the seat down so you dont fall in at 5am!

Count your (temporary) blessings... it gets even more fun... I'm up at 1:00, 2:30, 4:00, and 6:30 every night to pee.

Yea.. my peeing got better for the 2nd tri. First trimester I was peeing 3 times in the middle of the night, most nights, but min 2 times. Now I make it through alot of nights w/o having to get up middle of the night! Yay! I've had a few days where I've been running and had to go to the bathroom 3 times in 30 minutes or less but it only happens sometimes!
Hope it gets better for you!
