Im 17 weeks pregnant (first pregnancy) and i have IC (interstitial cystitis) and Endometriosis .
Im in pain daily and i feel like theirs a constant pressure on my bladder. Im hardly sleeping because I'm up loads in the night for the toilet and find it hard to get comfy. Ive also had a lot of cramping in my lower abdomen and had to have 3 scans very early on in my pregnancy to check the baby (everything was fine). My midwife said cramping is normal and not to worry too much. However, i do worry a lot because i had a miscarriage last year.
Before i got pregnant the first time, i was having bladder installations weekly and was given a prescription for Elmiron. I never started taking this as i was advised not to if i was trying for a baby but i will when the baby is here. Is this pressure feeling gonna get worse? I cant go anywhere without planning my toilet trips. I leave the house and walk for 10 minutes and i feel like I'm busting for a wee, but when i get their only a bit comes out. I have to go to relieve the pressure like feeling. Any advice please? Do i just put up and shut up?
