A tiger striped belly button...cool

I dunno why I thought that was so damn funny. I need sleep!

Since urine is sterile, unless it contacts some bacteria on the way out, it shouldn't be taboo in one's own home. I always figure I'm doing the environment a favor by peeing in the shower, since that eliminates a flush and a wad of paper.

Speaking of, I don't insist that my dd flush after every trip to the potty...and I don't flush during the night (which is 4 or more trips these days). We are either really lazy, or we are doing our part for water conservation. We do flush poop though.

Normally, we rarely flush our toilet, but lately, because my pee STINKS, I have been flushing more often. :

When I was growing up, my Dad was fond of saying, "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down!" Much to my dh's consternation, I typically still follow that advice!

And my dh flushes before he's even finished. Which I find totally odd.

My Dh does too, and he has a total heart attack if there is pee in the toilet! We HAVE to flush after every trip in there.

I would, but I like to see the color of my pee to make sure I'm drinking enough.

If it's clear.... let it, uh....?

New problem. I am peeing so much that the wiping is starting to irritate my vulva. I can't see not wiping, though! I'd have pee running down my legs!

Another gross little tidbit: The other day I threw up so hard I peed myself. I stood up and walked into the hall on the way to the bathroom (I threw up in a can in the bedroom) and stopped to talk to me DP. He looked at me funny and said, "you're leaking." I looked down and realized I hadn't just peed a little - I'd peed so much that it had pooled in my underwear and was running down my leg in a stream! Of course, to make matters worse, I then had to sniff it to make sure it wasn't amniotic fluid. Yuck.

Do you use TP or family cloth? If you use TP, I would recommend switching to family cloth. We made the switch when I was pregnant, for the same reason! Cloth feels so much nicer and doesn't irritate like paper does.

I guess I don't understand how family cloth works. I use cloth fem. hyg. products, but they get washed between each use. Surely you don't wash the towel every time someone wipes? How does it stay clean?

No, like cloth baby wipes. We use old blankets cut up, wash cloths, fancy wipes I got from Bumblebeej : , homemade flannel ones, etc. We have a little basket on the back of the toilet with the clean ones and a bucket next to the toilet for the dirties. I just wash them with the diapers.

Oh, LOL, that makes a lot more sense! I was thinking along the lines of a handtowel.

I'm not sure if I could handle poopy ones (adult poop is so much grosser than baby/breast milk poop), but I could do pee ones, for sure.

Thanks for the suggestion!

A new cause of belly button funk-

I still have my belly button ring in. I ordered one of the pregnancy barbells because my ring was really irritating. The top of the belly button (the part they pierce) is so stretched it's basically a thin flap of skin right now. My piercer made the barbell into two for me- a shorter one and a longer one. Last night I needed to switch it out to the longer one because the short one kept getting knocked around and almost ripping out. When I changed it, oh holy stink bomb!!! Anyone here familiar with piercings may know that sometimes dead skin cells, oils, and soaps can get inside piercings and cause them to get gunky and stinky. Well, belly buttons can get some nasty gunk (I'd had mine stretched to 8ga before kids and that caused more funk). But this was so bad!!! It almost took my breath away. I had to get in there and clean with an alcohol wipe. The skin is stretched so thin that my belly button doesn't get clean in the shower anymore I guess.

i also have something to add, although it's not stinky, it's CERTAINLY tmi.

i have butt cheeck acne! i think it's caused by the rather "humid" state of everything below my waist and above the knee....

i've been using an alpha hydroxy lotion on my butt after i bathe, but it hasn't helped. today, i got some neutrogena body scrub w. salicylic acid in it.

anybody have any tips for me? or do i have to find a spa that offers an a$$ facial?!?!?!:

I actually practice this, but the thing about it is you have to clean the toilet sooooooo much more often with pee sitting in it ALL the time! Ewwww...

Get that peri bottle out! Squirt some water, dab gently with a piece of cloth and you're set.

All this talk about A$$ acne makes me feel the need to confess my most guilty pleasure:

I love to pop zits-I really do. I know it's bad-but there is something about squeezing out a white head that is just fascinating for me. :

Are you sure that it is urine? It might very well be female ejaculate.

My big sex worry is that how gassy I have been lately is not just letting out the occasional "whoops, I farted!" once during, BUT the constant poot poot poot poot pooting during most of the act.


And all I have to say is Whew! I am not the only one prone to butt zits during pregnancy!!! If I didn't need my husband to help me out of the bathtub now (we have no shower ) I wouldn't let my husband see me in my birthday suit.

don't feel bad mama, last year dp and i went to the massage school for some cheap relaxation. the walls were pretty thin, and 15 minutes in i heard him rip one. LOUD. it was all i could do to keep myself under control for the rest of my massage. (i just told him i was out'ing him on MDC and his only response was, "but you have to tell them that she pushed REALLY hard!" )

and i also have to admit that i've been poot poot poot'ing during our romps in the hay as well. i try to mask it by making extra-loud noises of pleasure.
