Early Pregnancy Symptoms - Frequent Urination
Frequent urination can happen as early as 1 week into pregnancy. You may find you are running to the toilet a lot more often than normal and maybe even during the night.
As the uterus rapidly enlarges after implantation, it presses on your bladder making you feel like you need to urinate. Often you will rush to the toilet only to pass a tiny trickle of urine!
Urine may also darken and have a stronger smell than normal so you should try to drink plenty of water. If you are concerned or experiencing any pain at all when you are passing urine, make an appointment to speak to your GP in case you have a urinary tract infection.
