I just have to say I love this thread! It makes me feel SO much better to know that I'm not alone in all these TMI things. I feel so swollen "down there" it's crazy.

You have to understand that I am EXTREMELY self-conscious about my body as it is...I mean, if I could deliver in the dark just to avoid anyone actually seeing my naked form I totally would!

 

I had my OB turn down the lights when she checked me for dilation lol.

 



This is me. And something about being in mixed company makes it worse....if it's just doctors, ok. If it's just my husband, ok. But to have my midwives, my husband, and my mother all there, while I'm laying there, well, exposed, bugs me. But I really need all three there, so I guess I have to suck it up.

I do have my husband and mom leave though for the "exams" if they do any.

And i'd prefer my husband keep his head up near mine, and  NOT see me go poo on our baby.lol

My husband has never witnessed childbirth. I made him watch an online video of a  home waterbirth, because he had never seen anything other than what hollywood shows. (Screaming, scrubs, all of it.) He was surprised at how calm it all was.
But then we started talking to our friends who had a home water birth. Her husband said "it was awesome. well, that is, everything up until I had to siphon out the placenta-poopy water with a garden hose..." (by mouth...gag)
DH quickly made sure that we have an electric siphon ready with our pool.

Speaking of poo -- does anyone else have giant ones only during pregnancy? The plunger has become my best friend. irked.gif

the iron supps definitely make mine poo very solid/strong. poops of steel. more an issue for the scrub brush than the plunger around here. but definitely gross.

 

I am seriously thinking now of stopping iron supp at full term just in case I have the aforementioned pooping during labor. Those black, sticky, iron-rich ones are nasty. I guess I will see what MWs think about my iron levels... I'm guessing they will check today (36-week appt). I was anemic earlier in pregnancy and have been supplementing for months now.

Yeah, my poops are tiny and juicy and frequent.  It's better than being constipated, though.  I think the cal/mag supplements I was taking helped me get pretty constipated some days.

Although...something I have been wanting to ask but have been kind of...self conscious about...

 

Anyone else have/had weird black scabby type stuff in the creases/folds of their nipples??

I dont know how else to explain it.

 

At first I thought I was dirty/not washing good enough but that did not seem to matter, so I started picking and it flakes out from between the skin folds/whatever of my nipples..its like scabs or something although there is no pain or discomfort.

 

Anybody have any ideas??

 

Im so embarassed to bring it up with my OB

Yep, I get that.  I get white/clear crusties, and little black flake things.  

 

Also sometimes I sit around naked in the evenings and I don't notice my nipples are leaking until I've got colostrum crust on my belly.  Delicious.

Yay, Im not a freak!!

 

I have had to stop myself from picking at them (Im a picker..a bad picker..) because every time I do I end up with colostrum everywhere from the nipple stimulation :(

 

Yay for boobies.

I mess with my nipples ALL the time. I absolutely have to pick the crusty off them in the morning. And sometimes I swear they just get too full of colostrum, they get itchy, and I have to squeeze some of it out to get relief. Sometimes I'll be sitting in bed on my laptop at night and feel something drip on my leg... and find out I'm just dripping all over the place. Lovely!

 

The truth is, I love the colostrum leakage. Before I got pregnant I had issues with flat/inverted nipples (hey, this is why this thread has the name it does!). The condition has improved with pregnancy, and the fact that my breasts are producing colostrum--even when it's inconvenient--is a reminder that yes, my body CAN do this!

 

That still doesn't mean it's not frustrating when I leak through my shirt in the middle of the day, though...

trinket - just wait for the leaking after baby comes!!!

 

I haven't really had any leakage but one day I was in wal-mart & this woman was letting her baby just cry & cry & cry (don't know why her mom was with her to watch the older kids & kept telling her to take the baby & deal with her but it was like the woman didn't even notice the crying). I almost LOST it on her as I could feel I was going to start leaking all over the place from the sound of the baby crying. Poor babe.

My nipples were not inverted or anything but they were oblivious to sexy times and never got hard/alert.

 

Now I can wear three layers of clothing and STILL look like I have pencil erasers shoved down my shirt...and you know what, I kind of like it!!

I had a sex dream last night that was to do with a toothbrush. And the toothbrush was brushing my TEETH mind you, but somehow, that was enough. WTF?

problem for me is that I've got big boobs and have to really watch that the nips are arranged right. or else one might be looking up at the ceiling or something... and it just gets worse with nursing. a nice big bulls-eye of wet milk to draw the eye there...

 

Trinket90, I definitely like the disposable nursing pads for the first while. once the milk comes in mine will spray across the room from the breast that isn't in use. And it will be actively dripping through bra, shirt, etc. In fact, that is on my shopping list for the weekend (I am full term on Monday).

due date crashing, but I just can't resist.

 

 

DH and I were doing the deed the other day, and all of a sudden, the baby moved weird on my bladder so I had to pee really bad (even though I had JUST went) and that made me start laughing. So He's going at it, I'm laughing hysterically. As I'm laughing I'm telling him that I'm going to pee my pants (or, rather, pee on him) and he thought that was hilarious. Well I thought I could hold it. Yeah, no. Totally peed on my hubby.. and no, we aren't into that. hahahaha

 

 

 

I just couldn't stop laughing.. for like the next hour.
