Did my bladder shrink? Anyone elses?

I have never been a "regular" person and I could hold it for several hours if needed. But now...I feel like I am 8 months prego with the kid sitting right on my bladder. I have to go all the time. Plus I am taking Miralax twice a day to keep the other areas moving along. I have never had to get up in the night to go to the restroom - but now I get up 2 or 3 times a night.

I know I am drinking alot more water and poweraid than before - but really this is insane!

Anyone dealing with this? I really hope this is not the new normal!

Thanks and have a great day!

Re: Did my bladder shrink? Anyone elses?

This is my new normal..............I'm sure it will settle down some over time.

Our bladders got messed with (some more than others), so they are not overly happy with some of us. At least it is keeping us walking, although I am having a hard enough time sleeping as it is and would prefer that my bladder at least give me a break through the night so I can sleep more than a couple of hours.

I am with you on that one. About the time I get comfortable and start to fall asleep I have to get up and go again.

I got up every 2 hours exactly the first 5 weeks. Now it's down to just once or twice a night. Today is my 8 week anniversary!
