....to be able to completely empty my bladder I have to shift my weight around on the toilet seat.  Oy.

Is it not so disheartening? I almost feel like my bladder let me down after feeling like I would explode to dribble dribble dribble. Especially when the need to pee has woken me at 2AM from a great night's sleep. It's a bit of a let down each time, I'm not going to lie.

I peed today when I walked into Walmart and by the time I walked to the baby section at the back of the store, I had to go again... thank god there are bathrooms back there.  I am measuring 34w and the midwife told me by the time I measure 36w my bladder will only hold a tablespoon of urine at a time.... and I still have 13+ wks to go.

so glad to hear I'm not the only one.  pantiliners are a necessity these days.

I'm hoping to stay at 2 pee night wakings per night for as long as possible! I remember last time, at the end, it seemed like I had to wake up every 20 minutes! Ah!

Tell me about it! I've got 20 weeks to go (or however long I hold out) and I'm already 4cm+ what I would be at term. It's hard to lie down, hard to pee, hard to not pee when I cough, sneeze or laugh, and it's even hard to poop at this point. It requires a lot of patience and leaning forward! LOL

 

Makes me wonder if I would have worked so hard to see my abs restored the past 5 years, if I I'd have known I'd be so stuffed when I got pregnant again. :-P

Pantiliners? I've been seriously considering depends. At least I can puke into a container while sitting over the toilet at home - that really keeps the messes down. LOL

 

Anybody else still puking on a daily basis?

I was just thinking of posting something along these lines today. I think the time has come for me to pull out the pantyliners! :( I swear the baby must be using my bladder as a trampoline or something...

It's super fun that when I sneeze, I have to make a conscious effort to hold everything in my bladder. One day I will fail I'm sure..... blush.gif

I hear u :) everytime I sneeze, I have to stop whatever I am doing to just focus on holding my pee inside my bladder. :)

You guys can HOLD your pee when you sneeze?! I'm very jealous.

This was never a problem until now. I used to be a mega sneezer (and chronic cougher) and nothing's changed except that now I add mega pee-er to that, too. Fun times!

Have you tried doing a kegel before and during the sneeze?  I thought that I couldn't hold it in either, but then I started concentrating everytime I started to sneeze and haven't had any issues since.

I'll admit it... I peed a little yesterday when I sneezed. OOPS.

post #17 of 19

I've tried that, too, the kegels before/during. It works so I don't pee myself all the time, but only some of the time. :\

It's a shock to me since I've been doing kegels since my early 20s and I could probably break something with those muscles, and yet, pee defeats me. Thanks, kiddo!

My muscles don't usually fail me on the first sneeze. It's more like I cough 5 times and the 5th time my muscles just can't hold out anymore. Or I've just been vomiting really hard, wearing muscles down and then one little sneeze, or anything, will just overcome my weary muscles. :-/

I have not had problems with the peeing yet, but I have hit the point in pregnancy when in order to shave my bikini area I just have to go by memory or touch!
