A Letter To My Bladder

Dear Bladder,

Please stop tormenting me. Up until now, I have never in my life woken up in the middle of the night to pee. I am quite fond of sleeping and I am very good at it. I can sleep 8, 9, 10 hours a night without even being that tired. Steven used to joke that a train could go through our bedroom and I wouldn't even stir, I am that heavy of a sleeper.

But now, it's a whole different ballgame. At 15 weeks pregnant I have gotten to the point where I have to wake up to pee. Every. Single. Night. And don't even blame it on all the water I've been drinking. I drank just as much water when I was on Weight Watchers and not once did you disturb my sleep for a quick trip to the toilet. I have been lead to believe that it's because the baby is growing and pressing down on you, but I know better. The truth is you hate me and want me to be miserable.

Make me pee all you want during the day. I don't mind. I even enjoy being able to get up from my desk and stretch my legs and back on the way to the bathroom. But please, I am begging you, please leave me alone at night.

Your Truly,


  1. My having to pee during the night eased up. However, later you'll just wake up for no reason, several times a night and toss and turn... It's really enjoyable... not.

  2. I already wake up to pee in the middle of the night. I can't wait to see what happens to me. Good thing you know where the bathroom is this weekend!
