I seem to need to pass urine all the time, but when I go it''s only a tiny amount. Why is this?

This happens in early pregnancy because the growing womb is so close to your bladder. This eases off in the middle of the pregnancy because the baby moves up into your tummy. In late pregnancy it comes back due to the weight of the pregnancy again pressing on the bladder, this time from above. As long as you have no other symptoms, this is perfectly normal. However if you have a stinging feeling as you pass urine, have low abdominal pain or have noticed blood in your urine, it may be that you have a urinary tract infection (UTI). These are also much more common in pregnancy and you should see your midwife or doctor in the antenatal clinic as soon as you can to send a specimen of urine to the microbiology laboratory. Before the result is known you may be given antibiotics and pain killers.
