I have one very embarrassing pregnancy symptom from the time I found out I am pregnant!

 

My underwear are wet, all the time. I know TMI!

But, I sweat, leak urine, whatever. I have to wear a panty liner!

GROSS!

 

I never had this with my DS!

 

I feel like this baby though is pushing more on my bladder then ever!

You are not alone!

This pregnancy I have been using pantyliners for the first time in years, for all those reasons mentioned above. redface.gif

Add me. I picked up pantyliners, and DH waited about two days before finally just being like "I'm sorry... I have to ask... I don't understand."

 

It's discharge for me, not urine at least. But it's super sticky, and I have actually caused myself pain a few times by pulling my underwear down too fast and not realizing that I am STUCK to them. Brutal. And yes, there's so much of it, that I'm constantly worried about leaking through. And to top things off, since it's tinged yellowish, and there's so much, I'm worried about staining all my underwear!

Lots of panty liners.  DH has been very sweet and not asked about them, but I know he is watching and wondering what the heck is going on.

I asked hubby to get me panty liners and he comes home with the these huge pads!

I was like "Are you trying to make a statement here?" LOL!

He just couldn't find the panty liners!

 

My Hubby doesn't ask what they are for either!

Me too.  I have found the most wonderful reusable ones from www.lunapads.com .  Highly recommend their undies with the built in liners as well.  Very comfortable.

Totally second the luna pads/liners. I use lunas on a monthly basis anyway, so I had a stash already, but I just use the regular ones without any insert as panty liners. And then toss them in the laundry basket to be washed with the rest of my clothes, no special treatment (now anyway - when I'm using them for my period I don't do that LOL). I find them to be much more comfortable than disposable panty liners, especially on really sweaty days. And, um, there's no adhesive to get unstuck on sweaty days either.redface.gif I HATE that!!

Same fun stuff going on over here!  I actually spoke to my doctor about it the other day just to make sure it wasn't abnormal.

I've had that happen a few times, but not too bad (yet?) BUT I thought of something today that is really embarrassing to me... the CRYING! Every stupid little thing makes me cry, and I'm not the type of person who normally shows much emotion. Even when it's just DH and I, he has an easier time letting it go and he's a typical guy who doesn't like to admit he cries sometimes. The kids have been good 'therapy', because they've figured it out and started asking me to watch Animal Rescue with them so they can laugh at me.

When your pantyliner becomes so wet that it loses stickiness and falls out of your pants in the middle of the store, then consider yourself embarrassed.

I don't know if anyone saw because I was too shocked. bigeyes.gif I quickly slid my foot over it to cover it and then I bent over and picked it up. My husband gave me a strange look, so maybe he saw, but he didn't say anything.

Haha, this is great. I concur with the annoyingly increased discharge eyesroll.gif

 

I think I have just generally increased bodily secretions. I feel like I have way more saliva and start drooling before I eat. Also more snot, so I'm constantly needing to blow my nose and never have a tissue handy. I have also noticed increased earwax production. Anyone else experience that? Oy.

I definitely have more saliva - I've noticed that I've started drooling when I go to sleep now!

I have increased saliva...I drool all over my pillow every night!  Also, increased snot for sure!  I have kleenex in every room, car and my purse!  My nose is always running.  Not so sure about the ear wax...I've been keeping up on the q-tips.  :)

I haven't noticed the saliva, but I kept meaning to mention the snot! lol. My nose isn't running or anything, but every single day I can find oodles of not so liquidy buildup congesting my nose. I've never had anything like that. I'm not sick... it's just... there. 

 

Is that gross enough? lol

The snot thing is totally happening to me too. And I've been snoring because of it... lovely. My poor sick hubby had to go sleep in the other room the other night because my snoring was keeping him awake!! I felt awful. And then I stretched out in bed and slept all sprawled out like I used to before we got married & pregnant and I felt much much much less awful. lol.gif blush.gif

This thread is making me feel much more normal! I'm not having any bladder issues yet, but this nose thing is driving me nuts. Just as soon as my body knew it was pregnant, my nose has been on hyperactive alert, constantly sneezing, stuffing, running (and running, and running). I can't do anything without a handful of napkins close to hand, and I had to make more so as not to have to wash every day. I blow my nose at least 30 times every day, for the past 6 months, and I'm so tired of it!! DH says I should take allergy medicine (he doesn't know most of them aren't good for pregnancy), but I know this crazy nose is pregnancy-caused, and nothing helps. I'm SO looking forward to it going back to normal some day. (Please tell me it will!)

I don't have a stuffy/runny nose at all, but my sinuses are blocked all the time.  I almost always wake up with a headache near my inner eye and occasionally my right ear goes funny and feels like it's underwater.  The ear thing is sooo annoying.  I can hear myself breathe and it drives me crazy.  My neti pot doesn't seem to do anything.  I keep meaning to boil some water and do a steam facial, but I never quite get around to that.  Mostly I rely on Tylenol when there's a lot of pressure.  For awhile there it was like a daily supplement for me :(  I hate taking that kind of stuff.
