OK ladies- Nothing is really TMI - Page 2

post #21 of 50
My crotch has been a swamp for months now. And the crotch sweating... aye aye aye! And it leaves a spot on the toilet seat that is just yucky so I use wipes on the toilet seat daily too. LOL!

My white toilet seat now has a pink hue to it, and I am sure it has something to do with me and the pregnancy.

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. :
The other day I got out of the tub and as I was drying off I peed. Right on the floor! Just standing there, drying my back and pee comes out. We're awesome.

DDC crash but I had this same problem, until I started sleeping nude on the bottom. Also soaking in a tub for a few after sex can stop the yeasties. But even if I wear pads and SWEAT all day, if I go commando at night all is GOOD!

IM SORRY THIS MADE ME LOL.... Thanks for that, I needed to know I am not alone in this peeing thing. I pee all the time and I can't even feel it until I am wet, there is no sensation of urine releasing at all. WTH???? LOL

I bathe at night and then in the mornings I have a crotch shower. EW.
Anyone else?!
Sleep nakie on the bottom! This is my new thing. I really love it! I sweat too down there. I just put the fan on and aim it down at my legs and bum and when I wake up a little sweaty I take the blanket off my lower half. It's working fantastic. DP wakes up to my big butt exposed all the time. Poor guy.

I did mine the other day with a buzzer. I CAUGHT MY LABIA...Totally not worth it. I usually wax when not pregnant. It just isn't worth it. LOL

Wow...this tread totally cracked me up, made me smile and made me realize that I am not a freak and not alone...these are truly the things my mother didn't tell me about pregnancy!

I noticed that I smell too, I never smell-- seriously, even my husband has commented on this and I used to shower every other day (I hate drying out my skin & hair)...now I have to shower every day and sometimes I want to shower twice, I thought my deodorant was failing me, but I think this is just pregnancy for me!

Also, I'm constantly damp "down there"...ick, I had to buy more panties to get through the days and nights, I try not to use pads, I like to let myself "breathe."

Peeing is such a joke, sometimes I feel like I have to go desperately and only about 3 drops come out...I am always wriggling all over the seat to get the best position for release!

Glad we're in it together and almost done!

Oh Lord... the discharge! It is so gross. Yeah, we don't have to deal with our periods for 10+ months, but this... this is not much better. Gack!
post #30 of 50
I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a funky smell complex. My husband swears that I don't smell any different, but I think I stink! Maybe its just all the gas lingering. I've never had such bad gas in my whole life!
post #31 of 50
I just had to say that I am glad that I am not a freak also. I have to change undies several times a day too b/c of discharge or peeing in my pants or just sweating too much. DH sleeps with 2 blankets at night b/c I have to have the fan on high to keep from getting soaking wet with sweat. I too feel like I stink all of the time and am just dripping with sweat half of the time from doing nothing. Oh, I too lift my belly to get every drop of pee out in an effort to increase time between pees (you know that extra 2 minutes between pees really helps, lol).

This thread cracks me up. I can identify with just about every TMI thing that you have all posted so far. Oh and I thought I was the only one who used the term, "swamp crotch."
post #33 of 50
Well, I had my first real *pee while not on a toilet today!* I have dribbled a little here and there like when laughing or sneezing, but today I was standing in the living room trying to convince my toddler to sit down for a diaper change and it just happened! I peed! I had no control over it at all. I didn't even realize what had happened until I felt really wet. My goodness... :

And I really stink. And I just don't care!
post #34 of 50
I'm totally with the too wet down there mamas....ugh! Yeah...honestly, i think i'd rather be having my period. I freaking HATE wearing panties now - i have VERY few that cover my butt - but with the wetness i kind of half too. I'm SO relieved to know that I'm not the only one, lol! Because i totally thought i was...

And i'm still *ahem*, shaving down there but now I have to lift up my belly and do a weird yoga-ish standing cat pose in the shower while i do it...it's really awkward and I don't see it lasting that much longer, lol, i just already feel gross enough and don't want to add to that feeling yet!

PS. Totally going to try the lifting my belly when i pee trick! I think i should just move into the bathroom...

For me, the baby is so low, that I feel like I need to go #2 all the time. The pressure!
post #36 of 50
I am so sick of all of the gas, from both ends. I feel like I have channeled my inner trucker. Add all of the crazy heart burn to that. Beside my bed is huge bottle of tums. It is insane! My poor DH, he just cannot understand why I don't want to kiss him - um, it feels like a chemical spill on my tongue.. sorry.

I haven't puked in a while, but when I did, that happened all the time!

I'm still trimming, but I can't really see, so who knows if I'm actually doing a good job.

Yup, that drives me crazy! I'm running to the bathroom just for drops. :

Oh and add to the pee accidents I keep having. For some dumb reason I have started throwing my underwear into the TRASH! I've had to pick them out a few times (and obviously it's not helping my panty situation, b/c like many of you I keep running out of underwear). It's like I do it and do not even realize it. I cloth diaper my kids, so it's not like I think underwear is just, "disposable." I don't know what is up with me, it's like I'm losing my mind...

Here's a crazy story. For some reason, our break room at work smelled like urine and everybody could smell it. But, I was smelling something rank everywhere I went that day around the store. When I started to get concerned thinking the smell was me, I asked a coworker, "I am smelling the break room everywhere I go. I hope I don't smell." She replied, "Yeah I know, smells are way more intense being pregnant." But, no sooner did I get come and take off my uniform did I get a whiff of my underarms and they were rank. I smelled bad .

I was at the store today, and bent over to try on some flip flops, only to be greeted by a loud fart...10 minutes later as I was checking out I had a brief coughing spell and peed my pants a bit
