OK ladies- Nothing is really TMI - Page 3

post #41 of 50
This is the best thread ever!

I've had to start using extra strength deoderant. Yesterday though, I ran out and had to use my natural brand one which was unfortunate. I was called out to a birth! There was one point when the laboring mama during a contraction nestled into my arm pit. All I could think about was how gross I must smell and this poor mom in my sweaty pregnant armpit. Ew!

oh wow. . . am I glad it's winter here for this stage of pregnancy. I remember the 'swamp crotch' all too welll from last time

As for me - the peeing 3 drops is where I'm at. I've given up flushing the toilet because - what's the point??

I also have enormous amounts of ear wax. Globs of it. Despite appropriate hygeine. Good times

Ok, what is with that? I've never had this problem before, and had NO IDEA it was pregnancy related. I literally can not hear out of my right ear and have to call my doctor and have the thing flushed out I guess.

Here is a situation that was just fantastic (sarcasm):

Last week I got a massage, first one in months so I was pretty excited. I woke up with EXPLOSIVE diarrhea , but could not cancel unless I wanted to pay anyway. I got to the office and had to have a blowout and only made it through half the massage before I had to go blowout again. I ended up cutting the massage short and running home to spend the afternoon on the toilet.

The worst part was I couldn't enjoy the massage because I was so tense from not wanting to blowout while I was naked on the table!

You are not alone in the potty issues dept.... the other day, I totally left a bag of gorceries behind at the store I was in such a hurry to get home to go... and didnt realize I had left it there till dd asked for a banana later that day!

I'm with both of you mamas on this one. I'm normally kind of on the waxy side, but both my ears have been way out of control. Glad to know that isn't just me.

resurrecting this thread

I'm resurrecting this thread to complain that I know officially have *heat rash* on my *inner thighs* despite all my efforts.
EW, OW, and

So, first pregnancy for me. I find out that I have HPV. (talking about that was the reason I joined this forum, so I'm not afraid to talk about it here) Not sure where I got it. Haven't had many partners. Turns out there are even theories that mothers pass it to their daughters and it just stays dormant till your immune system is compromised- JOY!

The other week, MW wants to take a look and check my cervix. She is going on vacation and needs to leave some notes, and she is also curious if I've dilated/effaced at all- so am I, so I say, "Go for it!"

Ugh... turns out, I don't only have HPV "down there" but my moles that used to be all cute, ain't so cute anymore. They were your flat moles that just look like big freckles. I used to have a cute vagina! I even recieved compliments on the moles! Now, bleh. I don't let my DH look at me there anymore.

I can only hope it returns to it's former cuteness (at least a little) after all is said and done. I am told that typically pregnancy is when a LOT of women find out they have HPV and it will go back to normal in a month after birth... God I hope that's true for me! It's not JUST a vanity issue, it's also uncomfortable. :

I had to have my ears flushed at one point. The PA told me to buy a nose syringe like they use on babies in hospitals, make body temperature soapy water once in a while and flush my own ears out. It has been MUCH easier to deal with since then!

I'm guessing the extra earwax thing is probably from the tendency for all mucous production to increase during pregnancy. I've definitely noticed more mucous in my throat since getting pregnant, and recently more earwax.

I'm also in the diarrhea club . Luckily I'm not experiencing nasty cramps or extreme sudden urges, but it's still not very fun. I've been eating a banana everyday lately, and I think it's helping.
