In brief: 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.

Past personal experience can tell the story as elaborated by Dr. Mack, which I highly agree to. For new mom-to-be, be checked out if you have UTI or an ability to empty bladder and hold urine properly. These are easy to do simply by reviewing Hx especially voiding pattern and checking UA, residual urine after voiding from a reasonable full bladder, not overdistended.

In brief: Yes
If a bladder infection has been ruled out- then frequent urination is common in pregnancy; especially in the first trimester of pregnancy.
