Frequent Urination

Ah, the pregnant bladder, you’ll come to get used to it, but it can be hard to adjust at first to the need to go to the toilet so much more often than you ever used to!

 

Don’t be tempted to drink less, hydration is essential to the health of you and your growing baby. Other than making sure your bladder is healthy (no infections) and toned, there isn’t a lot that can be done, as the problem is purely mechanical; the growing uterus puts extra pressure on the bladder, and this doesn’t let up until after birth.

 

Drinking less at night to minimize the interruptions to your precious sleep may be desirable.

 

We also like using Electrolytes in your water to ensure you’re maintaining good levels of electrolytes and optimal cellular hydration. Our preference is Metagenics Endura.
