During pregnancy, the frequency of urination as well as urine’s daily volume increase. In I and II trimester, a one-off volume of urine increases, this volume drops in the last trimester but the need to go to the toilet is much more frequent.  The volume of bladder being pushed by uterus decreases gradually, whilst the amount of urine staying in urinary tracts increases.  In addition, 2/3 of women experience the need to urine at night towards the end of their pregnancies. Incontinence during pregnancy is usually the so-called effort incontinence which appears in the pregnancy’s III trimester when the uterus is bigger.  Usually it is a leakage of a few drops of urine which may not even be noticed when panty liners are changed frequently. This might, however, be a problem of greater intensity. Multitude of hormonal changes taking place in a woman’s body during pregnancy and childbirth significantly strain the whole body.  The growing child stretches the lining of uterus which gradually starts filling all the space in the abdomen.  The remaining organs must give room to the child, they stretch and squeezed inside the abdomen they work in conditions which are more difficult than usual.  The little on , gradually moves about and kicks more and more, sometimes hitting the bladder.  Sometimes a kick might be strong enough to lead to urine leakage as the weakened constrictor muscles let go.  What is more, pressed by uterus, the bladder has little space so even when it is partially filled with urine, a pregnant woman feels the push. Remember not to limit the liquids drunk despite incontinence.  Try to go to the toilet straight after feeling the urgency - it might be too late a moment later.  If you release urine during a sudden feeling of pressing, go to the toilet every 30-40 minutes even if you cannot feel the pressing.
