I have had a cold for over a week now.  The worst part is I cough and pee myself too often to count.  I've taken to wearing a night gown and sitting on a towel for most of the evening.  Last night after changing my undies over 4 times while lying there trying to fall asleep, I gave up and grapped a hemp doubler.  I also cough so much that I occasionally puke. I'm not coughing up green stuff so the dr didn't want me to come in. I just want this cough to go away.  I'm still 26 days away from my due date, but will probablly end up with a section around the 21 due to my low lying placenta.

hug2.gif I'm so sorry. I hope you get well soon. That's no fun to be dealing with while heavily pregnant.

I hope your cough goes away. I've always been bad with stress incontinence. There's no shame in using a prefold or something.

yup. I've been wearing regular pads for my period since about 24 weeks, since I never know if I'll be able to ward off the next sneeze until I can get to the bathroom.   Last week I had a cough and was very glad to have the pads, I just changed them and didn't have to worry about changing underwear and pants...hang in there!
