Babies and Bladders aren't friends

I cannot tell you how many times I've been to the bathroom today. A little girl we will all meet soon really has a problem with my bladder invading her personal space and lets me know by kicking it as often as she can. For those of you who may not pay attention to the ticker at the top of our blog page, I'm about 7 months along right now. I've been told that at 9 months, the bladder will be really really tiny and that I will have to go even more frequently. I may have to invest in some Depends or duct tape together some of the diapers that are piling up in this house. Now my biggest fear is wetting my pants at school. Hey, then I'll really fit in with my kindergarteners!

I actually found that it got easier in my 9th month in regards to this because Bryan shifted in there and got off of my bladder. Maybe you will be as lucky! I will pray that you do, anyway.

Prop your feet up! Your friend, Kraygo.

HA! See what I started? Now everyone is reminding you to prop your feet up! LOL

I used to swipe some of my mom's poise pads when I was preggers with Jamie. They are like really big maxi's. Not very comfortable, but better than accidently peeing on yourself! Oh, and make sure you do your Kegel exercises starting now, and continue doing them after the li'l gal is born. Otherwise, you could have some bladder-control problems - seriously. Like peeing on yourself accidently when you laugh or sneeze, or at other intense times, if you know what I mean! E-mail me for more details if you wanna!

All I can say about the wetting your pants at school thing--you've been there, and you've done that.

I can vouch for Jenn--even with Kegels, there are opportunities for wetting oneself accidentally, especially when sneezing.

The last month, I was going to pee about every hour, whether I needed to or not. CJ was settled right there, so I always felt like I had to go. And sometimes, the urge would come on so suddenly that I would have to run to the bathroom right there and then. My coworkers loved to see me waddling quickly past their desks to get the restroom!

A friend of yours said...

Apparently, Babies and Blogs aren't friends, either, as you haven't posted since Thursday!

Maybe she's got her feet propped up and can't get to the computer...

Don't forget her "bee-ghee doe"s!

Becca said...

My mom what?

I know my mom doesn't like the Bee Gees. Disco is what made her switch to country.

annalu alulu said...

just "your mom."

I always like to say that when people start sentences with "your mom," no matter how innocent.

i love your mom, by the way. i think she's awesome

annalu alulu said...

oh, and i love yours, too, lydia, since this is your blog, and all, wouldn't wnat to leave you out

Jenn Hacker said...

Why not leave her out? She seems to have left herself out - of posting, anyway.

Where are you, girlie???!!!!????

And I love all your all's moms, even if yours did accuse me of being your paramour, Beck! LOL! I still think it's funny.
