Urinary frequency is a common complaint throughout pregnancy, especially in the first and last months. This happens because the growing fetus and uterus presses against the bladder. It will stop once the baby is born. If urinating hurts, itches, or burns, the woman may have a bladder infection. The diagnosis and management of urinary tract infections are discussed in Study Session 18.
