Peeing Too Often Interfering With Sleep?

Postby agonize » Sun Sep 27, 2015 12:14 pm

I'm at about week 4 (AF is late 4 days, tested BFP, showing symptoms). This week, I noticed that I've been peeing more and farting a whole ton (sorry, not nice to talk about). Last night, I got up 3x to pee, about an hour interval in between. I'm usually not like this at all -- I'm generally a very heavy sleeper and I never have to wake up in the middle to pee. It's disconcerting. Did anyone experience this symptom? And what are some ways one can do to alleviate the situation?

Yup. Best advice I have is to ride it out. I was always taught that the increased hormone production (especially the explosive production experienced at implantation and beyond) will lead to more waste for your body to get rid of, hence the need to pee constantly. Mine settled down for a while after week 10 or 12 or so, just in time for a nice break until baby started getting big enough to squeeze my bladder and start all over again, LOL.

And, yes, increased flatulence. No recommendations for that, unfortunately; it just happens!

For me, it hasn't let up since I found out I was preggo, I'm now 26+ weeks and wake up 2-3x a night to pee still! I'm used to it now, but just warning that for some this symptom lasts the entire time! As far as gas, I've smoked my hubby out of the room a few times lol! It's so normal, and again for some doesn't really go away so just try to roll with it :) it's all the lovely things about pregnancy no one mentions when you are TTC, they just talk about glowing skin and cute bellies haha

It won't totally eliminate the issues, but how about decreasing or stopping your water intake about 3 hours before bed? Try to get the bulk of your daily fluids in the morning and early afternoon. As for gas, if you can pinpoint the foods that make it worse (beans, broccoli etc) you could limit these in your diet. But even with doing that, the gas might just be an inevitable issue.

Oh man... great! Haha. yea, I'm just worried I'm not getting enough sleep. I think the getting up in the middle of the night to pee is contributing to my fatigue during the day too. It's all interconnected. Sigh...
