Around the 8th week the baby starts producing urine. I was just wondering where does it go??. Sorry if people think this is a dumb question.

It goes in the amniotic fluid, but your amniotic fluid gets replaced every 3 hours.  That's why you get sooo thirsty and that's why you pee alot and you can get dehydrated very easily.

huh, I never knew that about amniotic fluid (that it replaces itself every three hours)
I learn so much from you ladies ;)

Mumita hit the nail on the head and NO question is stupid... well... we won't go there. I have seen some silly questions but I assume those people are just trying to cause mischief. Your question was awesome!

OK...let me ask the second part of the question...that isn't stupid because Joy said so lol

Where does the amniotic fluid go every three hours?  Do I pee it out?!  How does it get replaced?  I am intrigued by this now!

you pee some out and some the baby drinks/eats and it goes through their body back out!  Yes you drink your own urine before your born!  BUT it's the most sterile urine you'll have in your life!  

It's a good thing though, cause the water and fluid you drink helps replenish and add nutrients to the babies urine, so it's helping even more on the growth of the lungs, and kidney's and other organs!

Thanks =)  I was dying when I read the post about it being replenished every three hours!!!!  I've read a ton of books, I get the weekly emails etc. and I'd never heard this!
