OAB and Pregnancy

1 year ago

Hi everyone! I’m new to the community but hoping you can help. I have had OAB since I was a kid and also have urge incontinence. I am newly pregnant and already my OAB has ratcheted up where I’m now having to rush to the bathroom every 20 minutes instead of every hour. Luckily I am able to work from home but this is unsustainable for work meetings and just being able to focus.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips or suggestions? I’m not keen on wearing incontinence diaper in my 30s but may need to do this during pregnancy so I can reduce trips to the bathroom? Any help/ideas would be SO welcome!!!!! Thanks in advance!!!!!
