as little miss said, exercise is great for pregnant women... but definitely use a closer bathroom... perhaps its the braxton hicks.... talk to your doctor about it.

Do you have a choice to use a bathroom closer to you? Exercise while you are preggo is a good thing. Sounds like you may be having braxton hicks (however it is spelled). But preggo women have to use the restroom often. If this means you have to stop walking the stairs and don't have a restroom closer to you, it may mean you have to stop working all together.

No that is the only bathroom that is close enough for me to get too the next bathroom is 2 more flights up... plus where I live I have to walk up 3 flight to get to my house which I only do maybe 2-3 times a day i just have to stop and take a break halfway up as for work its more complicated I can use the bathroom 15 times a day while im at work so by the end of the day my body is dead and ive noticed ive tried to hold my pee to not have to walk them which I know is bad...
