Could i have a UTI?

So i have had to pee a ton throughout this pregnancy as i did pregnant with DD15 but now its getting bad. I am up every 1 & 1/2 to 2 hours and all day today I am peeing constantly. Baby seems to be really on my bladder and the vigorous movements are also making me feel like peeing constantly (i am talking 10 trips to bathroom in an hour and a tiny bit of urine coming out but having a constant urge). I don't have any burning or pain when urinating. I guess i will contact my doctor if this keeps happening. I am also constipated today and feel like it makes the peeing worse (maybe more weight or bloating on my bladder). I hope i can sleep at all tonight. This stinks..:( Do you think this is just how i do pregnancy or i could have a UTI? Would they be able to test me right in doctors office at ob visit?

Never had a UTI myself without symptoms, but I have heard that during pregnancy especially women can experience utis that have no symptoms other than frequency of urination.

Sorry to jump in late, and especially with this response, but I just wanted to let you know that this is how my first UTI started.

I will ask OB office to test me for it just in case.

How long have you been having this constant urge to pee?

Sounds like it could be a UTI. I've had quite a few UTIs and some of them either had few or no symptoms. They test for it right at my doctors office.

I don't know its hard to tell. I pee alot through the whole pregnancy..so not sure if i have an infection or just my lucky bladder! Some days are really bad (seems worse when i am constipated like it blocks the pee but constant feeling of needing to). But for a while i get up every 1.5-2hours every night to pee so its about 4-5 times in 7-8 hours.I just took a nap because i am so tired from constantly getting up (i get up like i have the baby just not the feeding). haha i have appt next wednesday and will tell them i want to be tested for it. Thx
