I've been using my kiddo's potty wipes b/c tp just wasn't working well enough.

I would insert a VIt. E capsule...internally twice a day. And use some kind of vaseline or other lube before you go #2. Witch hazel compresses in between.

I never got them with any pregnancy either. But right before I got pregnant this time I had a bout from hell. It was terrible and some how they went away on their own. Don't ask me how, but I'm so thankful they did!

Whew...my stank has finally arrived. Dh and I had a noon time romp and I was so embarrased by the smell. WTH??? I just showered last night too. :Puke

I had wondered, but thought maybe it wasn't b/c it really isn't as bad as I've always heard they are. Doesn't hurt, it's that obtrusive, and only just started itching. It's not surprising though...I think I had them with the other 2 pgs and I'm so chronically constipated anway.

At least now I know.

this thread was on page 4.

maybe lack of stinkiness is a prelabor sign.....

Yesterday before my shower I smelled like feet and old Cheetos. My cat, who usually LOVES it when I smell (he smells pretty bad, so I think it makes him happy to not be alone) came trotting over to me to snuggle. Nothing can deter this cat from snuggles when he's in the mood - seriously, NOTHING. He came over, purring, and then took a whiff, glared at me, and RAN from the room and wouldn't come near me again. Once I showered, I was fair game. What does THAT say?

ROFL...I don't have the stink yet, it showed up in my 3rd trimester last time, I think...

Has anyone else been peeing themselves? :

I am sitting here on my birth ball and I'm pretty sure it's not my water. But gah, I hope I didn't just pee my pants. Nothing happened. It just got hot.

All the time. I don't put on undies anymore without a panty liner, b/c I don't know when I'll do any number of things that will make me pee (cough, laugh, sneeze, breathe). Last night I wasn't really thinking clearly (it's this cold, dang it) and got undressed to go to bed. Standing in the bathroom (naked) putting toothpaste on my toothbrush, I sneezed four times in a row. I've never been a serial sneezer - until the moment I was standing naked, 9 months pregnant, and panty linerless. I need to wash the area rug now.

Yeah it really sucks when you have 2 pairs of pants-one in the wash. And you pee through the other. With dh right there. "I'm just going to go change into boxers in this freezing weather because...I'm hot?" :

dp, ever the comedian, knows it's time to cut the jokey-jokes when I breathlessly say "STOP!", because if he goes any farther, I'm probably going to have to change.
Last week, it was too late, and as I struggled up from the couch (still laughing and suffering the consequences), he said, "did you pee yourself?" Like it is the most normal thing in the world for your significant other to regularly wet her pants.
The first time I really wet myself I had been laughing, then immediately lost it and started sobbing. That's when the understanding developed that one word was all it would take to shut dp up
He regularly says "I can't wait til you're not pg anymore so I can follow up on my jokes! And poke (aka tickle) your ribs again!" I miss the tickling too, strange as that may sound

WHY do I bother with tp anymore? My hands have had more pee on them in the past few days than in the last 2 years of diaper changes! As I got out DH's trimmer, I chanted "hey hey- ho ho- this yeti yoni's got to go." But still, the magic pee manages to discintegrate any tp to come within 5 inches of it.

If this isn't TMI, I don't know what is.

And I don't know what possesses me to post it on teh interwebz, but I just feel the need to share this with y'all.

For the past week or so, I've been using garlic suppositories at night alternated with tea tree oil tampons during the day to try and beat the BV, as directed by my midwife. And the first time I did the garlic, I couldn't find it to take it out... assumed it came out in a nighttime pee. Since then I've been sewing thread through the cloves as insurance.

So today at lunch I decided not to replace the tea tree tampon, to let
the old vagina relax a bit. Just now I went pee and there was a *plop*
- and I was stunned to witness the First Garlic Clove at the bottom of
the toilet bowl! It was a little golden brown, but intact and very
well-preserved. Then I had a gigantic poop.

1) does this mean I have a freakishly cavernously long vaginal canal
that no baby's head will be able to travel through safely/within a
reasonable amount of time?

2) conversely, does the passing of the First Clove signify a sudden
increased tendency to push out foreign objects, indicating an imminent
labor?

3) what else could be stuck up there, I wonder?

I think it's fairly normal. I know I've heard other people talk about that happening. I always put some floss through mine with a needle so I can find it. Digging those suckers out hurts!

Oh, man! That's hilarious! What else, indeed? A gold mine would be a cool discovery....

I got a question: I haven't really had any major problems with constipation at all this pg....just a couple days here and there, but easily resolved, KWIM? And, for the last couple weeks, I've been quite loosey goosey, LOL! But yesterday and today, I've been soooooo stopped up!

But when I do go, it's not hard like constipation, it's just as soft as it has been--just hard to get anything out, if that makes sense. I have the urge, but not much comes of it.

Could this be because the baby is so low? Maybe pressing on my sphincter or something? Is that possible?

No answer for you, but once again I am right there with ya. I attributed mine to the fact that my hubby stopped making my fruit shakes which was how I got my daily flax...but your explanation is probably closer to reality...especially since he stopped making my shakes many weeks ago and this has just been the last couple days just like you.
