Therefore, to adequately characterise the normative data, it was important to compare bladder capacity vs. 24-h volume (V24) relationships in our pregnant study population.Our objectives were to (1) collect normative bladder diary measurements from asymptomatic primigravid women, (2) investigate the relationship between these measurements and gestation of pregnancy, and (4) compare these normative measurements from pregnant women with those from asymptomatic non-pregnant women. We focused on measures of “bladder capacity” [average (“Vavg”) and maximum volume per void (“Vmax”)], (“V24”), and voiding frequency (“F24”).Study designThree-day bladder diaries were collected from 41 primigravid women, one three-day diary per trimester. We compared our pregnant data with non-pregnant data previously collected by Amundsen et al. using identical methods.

Regression analysis showed no significant differences between the pregnant and non-pregnant, V24 vs. bladder capacity relationships.ConclusionsPregnancy results in smaller bladder capacities and lower V24, with a normal relationship between V24 and bladder capacity, maintaining normal voiding frequency.
