decrease urination?

I'm 38+2 and have been peeing a ton throughout the whole pregnancy. I normally get up about 3-4 times everynight to go. Yesterday abound today I see to be going less. I went to bed abound round midnight and woke up at 5 to pee and didn't have to go again until now...10. It's also very little coming out. I have been eating and drinking the same since the beginning and of course Google tells me I have 3 life threatening diseases lol just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Baby seems to be moving fine and nothing else has changed besides some back aches and cramping

Same here! I'm 40 weeks today and I don't have to pee as much and if I do pee it's not a river anymore.

Do you have a doctor's appt coming up?  Since this just started yesterday,  it seems like you might start to experience swelling today and tomorrow.  If you've got the same amount of fluid as always going in,  and it's not coming out,  you're going to be storing it.

Are you having headaches or blurred vision or high blood pressure or any other symptoms of early pre-eclampsia?

My next dr appt is a week from today. I have had swelling since my second trimester but nothing huge until last night when I put my shoes on and they felt 2 sizes smaller. I had high blood pressure at my 37 week appt but the Dr's think it was a fluke because within 30 minutes from the OB office to labor and delivery it was back to normal and was near perfect at my appt 2 days ago. Other than that a few slight headaches but nothing severe.

kbit,  it sounds like you're really on top of things.

If you do start to swell significantly and have other preeclampsia signs,  sounds like you'll know what to do.

You're near the end -   ;D
