Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

you don't need to be holding your pee.  It can make you sick on a normal basis, but even more so now that you are pregnant. It can cause UTI's and you don't want to have to take antibiotics while you are pregnant...lots of people do it so its safe, but for your health and the baby's health go when you feel the urge to go even if it's a lot of trip to the bathroom.
Your baby could be positioned right on your bladder so that can happen. Kegals (pee stop pee stop) can help strenghten your bladder and doctors say it makes it easier when you deliver when you exercise that muscle. But just make sure when you have to go, go, and try not to put yourself in the place where you have to hold it
