I just had to say that I am glad that I am not a freak also. I have to change undies several times a day too b/c of discharge or peeing in my pants or just sweating too much. DH sleeps with 2 blankets at night b/c I have to have the fan on high to keep from getting soaking wet with sweat. I too feel like I stink all of the time and am just dripping with sweat half of the time from doing nothing. Oh, I too lift my belly to get every drop of pee out in an effort to increase time between pees (you know that extra 2 minutes between pees really helps, lol).

This thread cracks me up. I can identify with just about every TMI thing that you have all posted so far. Oh and I thought I was the only one who used the term, "swamp crotch."

Well, I had my first real *pee while not on a toilet today!* I have dribbled a little here and there like when laughing or sneezing, but today I was standing in the living room trying to convince my toddler to sit down for a diaper change and it just happened! I peed! I had no control over it at all. I didn't even realize what had happened until I felt really wet. My goodness... :

And I really stink. And I just don't care!

I'm totally with the too wet down there mamas....ugh! Yeah...honestly, i think i'd rather be having my period. I freaking HATE wearing panties now - i have VERY few that cover my butt - but with the wetness i kind of half too. I'm SO relieved to know that I'm not the only one, lol! Because i totally thought i was...

And i'm still *ahem*, shaving down there but now I have to lift up my belly and do a weird yoga-ish standing cat pose in the shower while i do it...it's really awkward and I don't see it lasting that much longer, lol, i just already feel gross enough and don't want to add to that feeling yet!

PS. Totally going to try the lifting my belly when i pee trick! I think i should just move into the bathroom...

I am so sick of all of the gas, from both ends. I feel like I have channeled my inner trucker. Add all of the crazy heart burn to that. Beside my bed is huge bottle of tums. It is insane! My poor DH, he just cannot understand why I don't want to kiss him - um, it feels like a chemical spill on my tongue.. sorry.

I haven't puked in a while, but when I did, that happened all the time!

I'm still trimming, but I can't really see, so who knows if I'm actually doing a good job.

Oh and add to the pee accidents I keep having. For some dumb reason I have started throwing my underwear into the TRASH! I've had to pick them out a few times (and obviously it's not helping my panty situation, b/c like many of you I keep running out of underwear). It's like I do it and do not even realize it. I cloth diaper my kids, so it's not like I think underwear is just, "disposable." I don't know what is up with me, it's like I'm losing my mind...

Here's a crazy story. For some reason, our break room at work smelled like urine and everybody could smell it. But, I was smelling something rank everywhere I went that day around the store. When I started to get concerned thinking the smell was me, I asked a coworker, "I am smelling the break room everywhere I go. I hope I don't smell." She replied, "Yeah I know, smells are way more intense being pregnant." But, no sooner did I get come and take off my uniform did I get a whiff of my underarms and they were rank. I smelled bad .

I was at the store today, and bent over to try on some flip flops, only to be greeted by a loud fart...10 minutes later as I was checking out I had a brief coughing spell and peed my pants a bit

This is the best thread ever!

I've had to start using extra strength deoderant. Yesterday though, I ran out and had to use my natural brand one which was unfortunate. I was called out to a birth! There was one point when the laboring mama during a contraction nestled into my arm pit. All I could think about was how gross I must smell and this poor mom in my sweaty pregnant armpit. Ew!

oh wow. . . am I glad it's winter here for this stage of pregnancy. I remember the 'swamp crotch' all too welll from last time

As for me - the peeing 3 drops is where I'm at. I've given up flushing the toilet because - what's the point??

I also have enormous amounts of ear wax. Globs of it. Despite appropriate hygeine. Good times

Ok, what is with that? I've never had this problem before, and had NO IDEA it was pregnancy related. I literally can not hear out of my right ear and have to call my doctor and have the thing flushed out I guess.

Here is a situation that was just fantastic (sarcasm):

Last week I got a massage, first one in months so I was pretty excited. I woke up with EXPLOSIVE diarrhea , but could not cancel unless I wanted to pay anyway. I got to the office and had to have a blowout and only made it through half the massage before I had to go blowout again. I ended up cutting the massage short and running home to spend the afternoon on the toilet.

The worst part was I couldn't enjoy the massage because I was so tense from not wanting to blowout while I was naked on the table!

I'm with both of you mamas on this one. I'm normally kind of on the waxy side, but both my ears have been way out of control. Glad to know that isn't just me.

So, first pregnancy for me. I find out that I have HPV. (talking about that was the reason I joined this forum, so I'm not afraid to talk about it here) Not sure where I got it. Haven't had many partners. Turns out there are even theories that mothers pass it to their daughters and it just stays dormant till your immune system is compromised- JOY!

The other week, MW wants to take a look and check my cervix. She is going on vacation and needs to leave some notes, and she is also curious if I've dilated/effaced at all- so am I, so I say, "Go for it!"

Ugh... turns out, I don't only have HPV "down there" but my moles that used to be all cute, ain't so cute anymore. They were your flat moles that just look like big freckles. I used to have a cute vagina! I even recieved compliments on the moles! Now, bleh. I don't let my DH look at me there anymore.

I can only hope it returns to it's former cuteness (at least a little) after all is said and done. I am told that typically pregnancy is when a LOT of women find out they have HPV and it will go back to normal in a month after birth... God I hope that's true for me! It's not JUST a vanity issue, it's also uncomfortable. :

Blarg, blarg-blargity- BLARG!!!

I had to have my ears flushed at one point. The PA told me to buy a nose syringe like they use on babies in hospitals, make body temperature soapy water once in a while and flush my own ears out. It has been MUCH easier to deal with since then!

I'm guessing the extra earwax thing is probably from the tendency for all mucous production to increase during pregnancy. I've definitely noticed more mucous in my throat since getting pregnant, and recently more earwax.

I'm also in the diarrhea club . Luckily I'm not experiencing nasty cramps or extreme sudden urges, but it's still not very fun. I've been eating a banana everyday lately, and I think it's helping.
