can't hold it (in)(redirected from couldn't hold it)
can't hold it (in)
No longer able to prevent oneself from urinating. I tried to sit through the rest of the movie, but I just couldn't hold it anymore and raced out of the theater to use the bathroom. Daddy, I need to go to the bathroom, and I can't hold it in until we get home!
