Pregnancy Symptoms (cont.)

Frequent Urination

While the pressure of the growing uterus against the urinary bladder is thought to be a cause of frequent urination later in pregnancy, even women in the early stages of pregnancy report the need to urinate more frequently. The hormonal changes of early pregnancy are believed to be responsible for the frequent need to urinate early in pregnancy.
