Pregnant woman standing in the bathroom having problems peeing during pregnancyQuestion: The last couple of nights I’ve had trouble peeing, even though my bladder seems very full. What’s up with that?

: It sounds like you have a stubbornly slanted uterus, and it’s now pressing on your urethra, the tube that goes from the bladder. The force of this increasingly heavy load can make urination impossible. There might also be urinary leakage when the bladder becomes overloaded too much.

A solution is to manipulate the uterus by hand to move it off the urethra and into the proper position. Your doctor might also perform catheterization, which is removing the urine through a tube. Speak to your doctor about what would be best in your case.
