OK ladies- Nothing is really TMI

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Here's a new TMI thread if there is anything you need to discuss because chances are someone else has the same thing! IDK about you, but my friends and family don't want to hear this stuff!

Is anyone else having to change their undies multiple times a day? This wetness is ridiculous and gives me that "not-so-fresh" feeling...

Also- I have been hoisting my belly up after I pee to get a little more out and it actually works.

eta: I admit I have been wearing the same bra for an embarrassingly long time. Its the only comfy one I have! Yes, I wash it.

I smell!

I wear deodorant and shower, yet my pits are super stinky by mid day. The weirdest thing is that often what I smell like is mexican food. Even when I didn't eat anything remotely like that.

penstamom- I have had to wear cloth pads my entire pregnancy because of the gobs of cervical mucus I get. Good times.

Oh, and when I puke really vigorously (which is like, every time I puke which is at least a few times a week), I pee my pants. This happened once at a restaurant and I had to tie my sweater around my waist (and I never tie things around my waist, I looked so silly).

Me too! I feel like I am constantly stinky. My husband doesn't notice, so it must not be too bad, but man...I love getting my shower every day, so I feel non-stinktastic for a few hours.

my personal moisture factor is like through the roof, and when i wear panty liners i get a yeast infection. I have been doing probiotics off and on this whole pregnancy but i'm still battling the yeast. it's driving me insane!!!

Have you ladies tried a men's deodorant? I feel I'm a pretty sweaty girl when I'm not pg, but things have been even worse with it being warm and being big and pregnant. I switched to Degree for Men and that seems like it helps a lot!

Ugh, I am right there with you on the changing the panties all fliping day! The only mama cloth I have is PP pads, and they are pretty huge, but i might just have to give in and wear them-lol!

crotch sweat

I have *the worst* crotch sweat at night, and sometimes during the day too. It's not discharge, it's between my thighs and outer labia. It is SO gross.
I bathe at night and then in the mornings I have a crotch shower. EW.
Anyone else?!

For about a month I woke up to crusty nipples and spots on my sheets from leaking colostrum. It happened during the day too. Mysteriously it seems to have stopped for now, but I still check every morning.
post #15 of 50
My butt gets chapped from all the sweating and leaking. I started putting corn starch on it!

And, yes, I change my underpants at least twice a day if not more. I actually went out and bought a couple more packages so that I could get through at least a few days without doing laundry. Where does all this stuff come from??!! I never really feel clean anymore. I am stinky, too, but I don't wear deodorant so I can't say I have tried to combat that one. I just kind of give up!

stinky/sweaty under the belly here. i lift it up to dry out in the crease. and i havent trimmed the pubic area in months. its a swamp.

Ok, I'll admit to this...

I take a bath daily just to have some relief from gravity weighing on my stomach (I don't have access to a pool, unfortunately). I am careful to empty my bladder just before I get in, but often times somewhere in the middle of my long, relaxing bath I feel the urge. Thinking that it can't possibly be *that* much, I go ahead and let what I think will be a dribble go - but it's not a dribble! How is that possible? Shortens my bath every time. :

This thread is awesome!!!

I've been lifting up my belly when I pee for a few days now. (One of the secretaries at work recommended it to me.)

And yes to the constantly damp panties and feeling not-so-fresh down there.

My nipples keep getting crusty from colostrum too (this did not happen with my first pregnancy.)

It's happened in all of mine but the first. In the first, I only ever saw actual droplets.

Not really much of anything, except that I don't think I've ever sweated so much in my life, and I stink. I seem to be the only one who notices it, but my body odour is definitely off. I hate it. I am so sick of sweat.

ETA: I just realized this is the July DDC - thought I'd clicked on June. Mind you, if I weren't having a scheduled repeat section, my baby would probably be here in July...

I totally thought that I "invented" the lift the belly when you pee move when I was pg with DD1... but I never wanted to admit it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this, it works wonders!!!
