To pee or not to pee: It's normal to pee every 2 hours but it's a mind over matter thing: we learn not to pee at night [convenience] and not to pee as often during the day [school and work rules]. So twice a day doesn't sound abnormal in general but maybe different for you. Talk with your doc if it hurts to pee, you have blood in your pee, back pain or fever, or if you just have questions.

Nothing for sure.: Your urine volume is a function of how much water you drink. For most people it will be more than that but under conditions of less water intake or increased perspiration it will be less. Normal kidneys can concentrate the urine greatly.
Dr. Stephen Chinn
Urology 38 years experience
Infrequent voiding.: With adequate hydration, most men will void 5-6 x's/day (350-500 ml/void) and most women 7-9 x's/day(300-400 mls/void). You haven't said how much urine comes out when you void. You could be dehydrated, or you may have a dysfunctional bladder. Either way you should bve seen/evaluated by a urologist.

Infrequent voiding: It is unusual to void so little.. You may have an issue with bladder innervation or other bladder issues, this also may simply be normal for you.. You should consult a urologist..

Intake?: How much fluid are you taking in? It could also be an issue of not drinking enough fluid.

A member asked:

Is it normal that my baby only feeds twice a day?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Yes: When babies start solid foods they usually will tolerate about 2 feeds a day. The breastmilk or formula is and should be the bulk of their nutrition. I generally recommend changing to a three meal a day routine when they are closer to 9 months.
A 43-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Dr. Megan Bird
Obstetrics and Gynecology 19 years experience
Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.

Should I be concerned if my urine is brown?

Dr. Ruth Crystal
Obstetrics and Gynecology 27 years experience
Yes: Brownish urine may be concentrated meaning that you are not drinking enough water. However, i would recommend calling your doctor's office for a urinalysis to make sure that nothing else more serious is going on.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Should I be worried if I feel my baby move less than 10 times a day?

Dr. Jeffrey Gladd
Preventive Medicine 20 years experience
No: Not necessarily. A lot of times, you are so busy throughout the day that you did not recognize all the baby movement. If this is the case, drink a glass of ice cold water (may stimulate baby a bit more), and lie down in a dark, quiet room. You can now focus on baby movements and should count multiple movements in a 30 minute period. Try to replicate this as best as possible throughout the day.
A 22-year-old member asked:

Should my baby's urine be dark yellow?

Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: This suggests most likely that the urine is concentrated and the baby needs more fluids, particularly if the baby is otherwise doing well.
