Hi Shreya! The main reason is because your baby is literally sitting on your bladder. The more the baby grows the uterus grows bigger as well & pushes the bladder. Another reason can be weak pelvic floor muscles , especially if it's not your first baby. Unfortunately there's not much you can do to reduce urination especially at night. But drinking less water from late evening, avoiding tea/coffee in the evening, avoiding other beverages, soups, liquids during the evening can help a bit. Some kegel exercises can help with a weak pelvic floor as well.
