The Urinary Bladder and Urethra
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Do you know what job your bladder plays in your body's functioning? It is a major player in the excretory system. After your kidneys have completed cleaning and filtering, the liquid waste moves from your kidneys through the ureters to the bladder.
 
2     The bladder is a stretchy, muscular bag. When it is empty, it is the size of a deflated balloon. It is pear-shaped. When it stores urine, it expands like a balloon. The bladder has thin but strong walls. It is located in the middle of the lower abdomen.
 
3     Your bladder feels comfortable storing one cup of urine. It is capable of holding over a pint, but you'll feel it!
