Alot of times baby is squishing everything including your bladder. So you can have more frequent urges to go, but with nothing to actually pee. If the urine you are getting is really dark, or you aren't going frequently, then it's worth a call to the doc. And it doesn't hurt to call the on call doc just to ease your
mind.

One of my friends has this issue with her pregnancies all of the time! Once she gets into her 3rd trimester, she feels like she has to go but only a drop comes out...just like Kara said above, it's due to baby squishing your bladder.
