Did you know?
You might feel annoyed now that you have to pay so many visits to the loo. The extra blood flow causes your kidneys to produce up to 25% more urine. The pressure on your bladder from your growing uterus also contributes. But don't let it prevent you from not drinking enough water during your pregnancy, which is about 10 glasses per day. You can expect your need to wee to reduce soon after your baby is born but not immediately. At first, you’ll produce even greater quantities of urine. Your body has to get rid of the extra fluid you retained during pregnancy.
