Yes.: Yes, urinating more frequently during pregnancy is normal. Increased cardiac output, circulating blood volume, and glomerular filtration rate affect the amount of urine produced. As your baby grows, pressure on your bladder may promote the sensation to urinate when your bladder is not completely full because of the mass effect from your uterus. If any other sx's occur, get checked for a uti.
