Bladder issues 1st trimester

This is my 3rd pregnancy. I had my first child when I was 20 and that pregnancy seemed to be the easiest. I had another baby in 2008 and am pregnant again in 2010. With both pregnancies in 2008 and 2010 I have had alot of bladder issues. With the pregnancy in 2008 I had a UTI and got a round of antibiotics which I thought took the problem away and since I still felt pressure and burning I went back and got on another round of antibiotics only to still have to fight with bladder issues. I then went to a urologist and he didn't find anything wrong either. I was drinking alot of cranberry juice at the time and decided to stop drinking it thinking it made my urine acidic and a few days later all the pain and pressure ended, which was also about the time of my second trimester. I thought I had a UTI for 6 weeks. Well, this time around being pregnant just a couple years later I go into having very similar symtoms, pressure on my bladder, it is hard to go to the bathroom many times. I could contribute it to the pressure on the uterus, which is suppose to rise around week 12. And so the countdown goes on. I am on week 10 and decided in week 9 to start eating foods that are easy to digest and high in fiber which has help tremendously with the pressure. I don't have heavy foods sitting in my systom trying to digest and because pregnancy slows this process down enough already I decided I would fight against it. With the limited space from my growing uterus my bladder just can't take any more pressure. I am expecting things to get even better in a couple weeks when the uterus starts to rise up but for now I am have made a very bad situation, livable. I definately recommend to anyone who has extreme bladder pressure to eat high fiber foods.


I knew as soon as i saw my boobs

Well it all began with my long term boyfriend of two years. I had no morning sickness and no signs at all the first 6 weeks. The only sign i had was a massive increase in apitite. I couldnt stop eating! I must have gone from a size 10 - 14 in about a week. One thing i found was a give away was how large my breasts became, also how tender they were also. I took a test with one of my girlfriends and it came back positive, i couldnt believe it, so i took 4 more. Surprised... they all said the same. So i went to my GP and had to check with her and i was. So now i am currently just under 3 months along, my boyfriend has been so supportive. Both of our families are happy. I couldnt ask for more!


i hope ot a baby

hi, im 20 me and my boyfriend been trying to have a baby for 3yrs, and this time i hope this is it! last month came on my period 2 weeks late when i thought i was but my period was differ from the others ones i wasnt cramping and it was not that heavy. I took 3 test but they alll came back negative. So now this month im feeling like i could be i already then gain 5 pounds, i have headaches and im nausea after i eat something,my bellly is big . Im pertty regular when it come to my period but last month and this month it been off, i still havent came on my period yet! So im hoping this could be it i pray ever night that god will give me this wondful blessing it would mean so much to me. So if thier any body out their with any in put on tihis it would be nice and helpful!



Im 19 years old and so far I had such a confusing time. I had no period since june and early august I got 2 home preg tests positive, then a negative health dept test, 3 more positive homes, and a positive health dept. I thought I knew I was pregnant until I went to a hospital for pain. They did an ultrasound and she found nothing but a small dot. She said I must be really early and not to worry but ever since then thats all I can think about. I told everyone before the hospital visit and they were all excited, but now after the hospital visit I wonder if im not. I just gotta wait until my first doctors appt and until then, its just gonna be a long long wait.
