Go Ahead and Make Fun of Me Now...

So I went to the doctor yesterday. I was working and I COULD NOT stop peeing. I mean seriously, I had to pee every twenty minutes. If I made it forty five it was a true miracle. It didn't hurt to pee like a UTI, but this was beyond the normal pregnancy pee. This was like, I need to pop a tent and just move right into the bathroom, sort of pee. After my 126,473rd trip to the bathroom, and once the lower back aches got bad, I decided better safe than sorry and that I should call. I haven't had a UTI in years, but from what I remember they were pretty close to hell. I did tell them I have no pain, just constant pressure and the urge to pee. They had me come in. The result? I have...a baby sitting on my bladder. Yep. That's the entire diagnosis. The nurse was really nice, but still I was pretty horrified. I mean, I am only 23 weeks! This baby will be weighing a hell of a lot more soon! But she said that the baby was SUPER low and that obviously it had positioned itself RIGHT ON TOP of my bladder. Totally normal to call...don't hesitate to call and double check with these things...bla bla bla. Still. I went to the doctor and got diagnosed with a baby. That I knew was there. Not my shining moment of medical toughness! I did hear that sweet heart beat so that made the entire thing worth it! Now all you people who have been pregnant before, feel free to point and laugh. I deserve it.


  1. Yup! Been there. He totally sat on mine and cut it off at the exit point. Nothing came out for over 5 hours of pushing in labor trying. Went to ER, got diagnosed with a baby (duh?!) at 14 weeks and a catheter that drained 4x the normal person amount. Baby C must be sitting on the non-exit side. They play cruel jokes on the body - fer-sher!!!

  2. "I went to the doctor and got diagnosed with a baby. That I knew was there."
    Now that's funny! I can see how it is embarrassing, but it's still funny!

  3. Ahh how adorable! (When I had my twins they both liked to kick my bladder, it meant many many trips to the loo!)

    Good luck!

  4. lol - I pee enough times without being pregnant I think if I ever do have kids I might just live in the bathroom from the sounds of this!! Glad you're ok thought!

  5. You don't know me. I was blog hopping and I came across your blog. I hope you don't mind me commenting. I just had to tell you that you made the smart move on calling your dr. and going in. My little girl was born 7 weeks early because I had a UTI and I didn't realize it. I thought it was just pregnancy stuff. I also didn't know that an infection could cause premature labor and birth.


  6. I say Way to go. I think you should always take a visit when things are a little different. My friend had that happen to her also.
