Another one from my archive. Several incidents with preggos. :rolleyes:

-------------------------------------

"My most embarrasing moment was when I was
about 8 months pregnant. I started laughing
and I just couldn't help myself. Right there
in front of all my family. Just remember
watch what you drink and how much you laugh!"

KC


"I've heard that B-Complex helps with those muscles.--
Also, Kegel exercises"

"I've found that leaning forward while urinating helps to
keep me from going as often!!"

""Don't laugh. I was nine months
pregnant and I felt as though I
had to urinate at least 20 times a
day. I was riding with my
husband on the expressway after
3 am one morning, all of the
sudden I had this incredible urge
to urinate. It was so dark that we
didn't know when the next exit
was coming. I couldn't hold it
any longer so, we pulled over to
the side of the road and I went
right there. It was embarrasing
but when you're nine months
pregnant, you really don't think
about it. Cranberry juice helped a
little with alleviating this
problem with my second
pregnancy. " "A glass 8 times a
day keeps the urge away"."

Maryanna Jowrohowski


"I was out with friends hanging out at a coffee
house and left without going to the bathroom
so at 3 in the morning leaving the city,I
screamed for emergency relief ,threw up all
over my friends car and on the way into the
gas station I went in my pants ,got to ride an
hour soaking wet. No more coffeehouses!"

Shana Rankin


"I am a school teacher and have always had to urinate often:
about every 3 classes. Now, I am the first person out the
door when the bell rings after EVERY class so that I can
make it back before the tardy bell rings. There are only two
employee restrooms so sometimes I am just in misery before
my turn and since I haven't told anyone of my condition yet,
I don't get special restroom consideration. My husband and I
get a good laugh from this."

Tracy


"I have a retroverted uterus and the pressure from the growth
on my blaader has led to an occasional inability to urinate
(needing catheterization at ne point). I am 12 weeks
pregnant. Can I expect this problem to go away, or will this
plague me for the next 28 weeks?"

P.J. Foley


"Me and my fiance' were on a 12 hour drive
trip to another state and about every 15
minutes we had to stop just so I could go to
the bathroom, it's more annoying than
anything."

"Since I've become pregnant (now 19 weeks) I
have of course had to use the bathroom alot!!
I have a small problem.....Perhaps you could
give me some advice.? My bladder was normal
before pregnacy but now if I even have a tiny
bit of fluid in my bladder and I don't get to
a bathroom the very minute I feel that I have
to pee, I leak. I now MUST wear a panty-liner
to catch these emmbarissing blunders. Is there
anything I can do that does not include a
catheder????"

Brandi


"I am the husband... My wife has been got up me
the last night about ten times because of
bathroom trips. I have been worried about
this! Now I am glad to hear that it is normal.

Thank you!"

Viorel


"Now that I am in my 3rd trimester my husband
has become accustomed to my unending trips to
the bathroom. In fact he now is my bathroom
"scout" when we are away from home. He helped
me find every bathroom when we visited Sea
World last month."

Jen


"I've become an expert at finding a bathroom
when needed. Sometimes that means being a
little sneaky--like walking across the street
during intermission and using a restaurant
bathroom, rather than waiting painfully on a
long line! I use the bathroom whenever I can,
just to be sure. If this is the worst thing I
have to suffer...!!!"

Linda O-W


"I am finding myself urinating every 15 min.
And if i cough i urinate, if i vomit theres a
puddle on the floor. I was not like this at
all my fist pregnancy. I'm only 3 1/2 months
too!!!"

Kari


"I once had an embarassing accident while playing tennis. At
about 7 months into my pregnancy I could still fit into my
tennis skirt, I just wore it a little lower in front under
my bulging belly. After playing for about 45 minutes I was
feeling the need for a potty break. We (my hubby and I)
continued to play awhile longer. I was near the net when my
hubby lobbed the ball high to the far end of my court.
Thinking I could return it I ran hard toward the baseline.
About half-way there I suddenly felt like I had to pee
really bad, so I stopped chasing the ball but it was TOO
LATE!!! I soaked the white nylon tennis briefs I wear under
my white tennis skirt and continued peeing no matter how I
tried to stop. I left a puddle on the court and just stood
there in shock and embarrassment. My hubby came walking over
to me and didn't need to ask what happened. I just said
"Let's go home". What surprised me was I only had
minor leakage previous to this, but than it had been at
least a month since I did anything as strenuous as tennis.
After another major accident a few days later while lifting
a heavy bag of groceries it was obvious strenuous stuff was
out until I had the baby. But I hated the thought of giving
up on tennis for the next three months. So how did I cope
with my Frequent (sometimes uncontrollable) Urination during
tennis? Adult diapers. Many of you young pregnant girls are
probably horrified at the thought of wearing DEPENDS but you
gotta do what you gotta do. Taking this humble step allowed
me to continue tennis throughout my pregnancy since tennis
was my main means of staying in shape. The DEPENDS didn`t
show since I wore my briefs over them under my skirt. Adult
diapers sure saved me some embarrassment on the tennis court
so I`m making the same suggestion to you. No one needs to
know you`re wearing them and they don`t show under most
dresses or other loose clothing. I hope this helps! P.S.
Sorry this letter was so long."

Sara


"Once at work I kept delaying a trip to the ladies room
because I was so busy. When I finally stood up the strain of
rising from my chair was too much for my full bladder and I
wet my dress pants halfway down to my knees. Now I ALWAYS
wear a maxi-pad since even with more bathroom trips I still
leak heavily on occasion . Suggestion: Use adequate
protection!"

Wendy


"In the rain - on a boat with no bathroom
aboard - that was torture."

Jacks B


"Mabey they should just give us women a porta potty,
since we seem to leak from everywhere during pregnancy
mabey a allover protection bag."

""i work for bell south telecommunications,and i am a
phone operator,and it is very had for me to assist the
customers, when every other minute i have to run to the
ladies room. i even remember i had to tell this one customer
to call right back, because i had an emercency i had to take
care.my co-workers call me the road runner....but they help
me out as mcuh as possible."

"On one of my doctors visits, I was asked to
give my urine sample. My bladder was so full
that I totally forgot about the sample
collection until i finished urinating. Only
then did i remember what i was supposed to do.
Then I collected every drop of it fresh for
the next 10 minutes."

"I am constantly drinking water (I am six
months pregnant) and I have to go to the
bathroom so often that it makes me not want to
drink any water at all! The worst of it is
when I have to climb over my husband in the
middle of the night to go to the bathhroom.
It takes me so long to get over him and into
the restroom that by the time I get back to
bed I am completely wide awake!"

sara


"I was about 7 months along and dreaded the long meetings I
often attended at work because I always had to use the
restrooom so bad by the time the meetings were finished. A
meeeting just got done and I was just ready to get up and
make a mad dash for the restroom when the office clown made
a funny remark and got us all laughing. I started wetting my
pants but I couldn't stop because I was laughing too hard. I
quickly got a few of my female co-workers and told them what
happened and had them follow close behind me as I walked out
to go home and change so the whole office wouldn't see the
huge wet spot on the back of my dress. Any one else had such
an embarrassing episode as this? Let's hear your
stories!"

Kendra


"Well, right now I'm 15 weeks pregnant it is
wonderful !!! I love going to the bathroom
alot!! Anything for my baby!!"

sarah


I can usually go pretty long before having to
go to the restroom. Now I'm going all the
time! It doesn't matter how much or how
little I drink. I have to go before class and
then as soon as class is over I'm running for
the bathroom again. In a normal 8 hour work
day yesterday, I had run to the bathroom at
LEAST once an hour. The guy I was working
with kept giving me weird looks and asked if
everything was alright.

My husband and I had to switch our bed around so that I
could get out of bed to go to the bathroom at night
without waking him up. I go at least once a night if
not more. It certainly doesn't help me get very much
sleep.

With my first child, Missy's body always woke
her up @ 3am. My brother thought she was
crazy until riding all night in a car with
her when she suddenly awoke (at 2:59am I
might add) for him to stop for a restroom
break. We all laughed!

Chad


Know one at work knows I'm pregnant, however
I go to the bathroom at least twice a hour,
every hour-my coworkers are being to wonder
and ask me if I'm okay

Before I found out I was pregnant I had went to a deer camp
with my family over the Thanksgiving weekend. While there I
stayed in the camp house and of course the only place to
potty was the out house, about 75 feet away. I tried to hold
it as long as I could but I couldn't go back to sleep. I
woke up and decided to get me a bucket. Good thing I did I
had to go 5 times that night and about that much for the
following 4 days. Yet now I understand why. Then 2 nights
after I got back to my fiance I had a dream showing I was
pregnant, and I remember thinking after all that tugging,
pulling and heavy lifting I did. Then a week later I took a
pregnancy test and it showed positive. Boy was I elated and
excited. My favorite commercial is the one with the woman
holding out her shirt saying "oh boy, or
girl"....lol

LeNaye 12/19/1998


before i knew i was pregnant i went to visit
family out of town and i was the kind of
person who never went to the restroom alot.
so i had driven for 5 hours but i refused to
stop, so by the time i did i busted through
the convient store and someone was in the
ladies room so i busted through the mens
restroom and felt alot better of course
everyone looked at me like i was a pervert
but i couldnt help it. i knew then something
was wrong with my body.

I have always wet my pants, but the frequency and
quantity have really increased since my pregnancy
started. I now find it imperative to wear maxi-pads
throughout the day, and they seem to be wet all the
time. The worst thing that has happened, though, is
that I have begun to wet our bed, something I have not
done regularly since I was a child of 10. It's a simple
matter of my bladder releasing before I can get up,
though I often awaken as it starts. Thank God my
husband is understanding, and never gets angry. We just
view it as the price of having a baby. I have found old
fashion cloth diapers and waterproof pants to be the
answer to a full night's sleep while I am pregnant. If
I wake up wetting, I just finish in the diapers and go
back to sleep. I assume the bedwetting will stop after
my pregnancy.

During my wife's frist pregnancy she would also have to
go to the bathroom frequently and urgently...she tried
to take preventive action as much as possible, always
finding toilets even if she didn't feel it necessary to
use them right then. Nevertheless, this didn't prevent
her from just not being able to plan ahead in all
situations, and she ended up wetting her pants quite a
bit, especially in the first 4 or 5 months, which we
both found a little strange since she was obviously
smaller in the first stages than later. In fact, during
the first three months her need to pee was far more
urgent than later. She is a pretty open person, so when
she had accidents or had to go to the toilet
immediately around people she knew (like at work or
friends) she'd just explain that she was pregnant.
However, there were quite a few times she wet her pants
in stores, movies and the like, often from coughing or
laughing. She wet her pants coming home from work
a few times, mostly just before she got home (she
walked from the bus or from work if the weather
was good), but once wet her pants on the bus.

Mostly she was able to get in control, but usually not
before she got her pants pretty wet, like to her knees.
She began wearing dresses a lot, which minimized public
embarrassment, but it was summer and her did leave
puddles various places.

She never found a good answer to her problem, and
rejected the idea of diapers, which a friend suggested
to her. One time she began to wet her panties on
vacation and ended running into a pet hospital, the
closest public building, desperately asking for a
toilet, and was directed to one. But by the time she got
there she had little left, except a trail behind her on
the floor and sidewalk. The secretary there said she
totally understood.

She is now pregnant with our second child, but has had
far fewer problems like this, which we found surprising,
if pleasant.

I usually drink a lot of water normally so when I was
pregnant with my first child I was a regular pee
machine. By the time I was in my seventh month I had
put on a lot of weight and between that and the water I
had to go almost constantly. I never went anywhere
without going first, limited my drives to under a half
hour, and always tried to plan ahead for a bathroom. I
must have missed half the movies we went to that last
two months using the restroom. Well as much as I
tried, I still had a bunch of accidents, varying from a
cough induced wetting to complete loss. At first I
would wear mini then maxi pads but soon these became
wet and uncomfortable and I was changing them several
times a day.

A friend of mine had just given birth to her third and
fourth (twins) and I asked her how she dealt with it.
She told me how each pregnancy her control got worse
and that this time by her sixth month she was wetting
all the time. Her suggestion was to use adult diapers
as they are really made to handle the problem. At
first I was unsure and very paranoid about it that
someone would know. After all, the last time I wore
diapers was as a child. Well after a few more
embarassing accidents I decided to give it a try and
they really worked. Much less embarassing than wetting
your pants in public. Nobody could really tell and my
husband appreaciated having a dry bed. He even told me
I looked kind of sexy in them. Plus by the time my
child was born I was an expert at changing diapers.

My second child was 10 lbs 4 oz and boy did he ever
press my bladder down. It took me about a month after
he was born to get my control again. Diapers really
helped me through that one, especially when I was in
bed for the last few weeks and could never get to the
bathroom in time. Now that I am on my third pregnancy
I swear by them. As soon as I started going often I
started wearing them and find them to be very helpful
and much less embarassing. If you think about it, they
are really just a large maxi pad, and any woman who has
been pregnant knows exactly what you are going through.
I just hope that I don't end up like my friend who had
twins, who to this day still has a leaky bladder, and
joked to me that she may be the last one in her family
out of diapers.

Besides this I hope all your pregnancies go well and
that your babies are born healthy and happy. Good
luck!

Susanne 01/05/1999


I've always wondered just how the little one inside know
just how to kick you in the worst possible place to keep
your bladder in control.
I hadn't wet myself since childhood until 6 months into my
pregnancy, then OUCH! it was happening several times a
day..pads helped.. but what do you do?

lizzie 01/06/1999


This happened to my sisterinlaw and I thought it was so
funny I almost wet myself. She was into her 8th month and
carrying twins. This was her first pregnancy. Kathy was as
big as a house, which was pretty big for a small woman that
she normally was. She had alot of "urge"
incontinence during this period but always had a warning
before she had to go. This one particular day though, while
doing the lunch dishes and without warning she gush buckets,
resulting in a her soaking herself and leaving a large
puddle on the floor. She thought her water broke and
paniced. Her DH was not home so she called him at work. He
called her an ambulance to take her to the hospital and told
her he would meet her there. When he arrived he was
expecting to get the news of the birth of his twins. Not the
case. Kath was waiting red faced for him to take her home .
The doctor informed her that wetting yourself and having
your water break were not the same thing. God was she
embarassed. She did deliver by C section 10 days later. Two
boys both healthy.

LouiseD 01/06/1999


Adult diapers are the answer. But they only work if you wear
them! Yep, I was in a grocery store when an awfully strong
urge hit me. I knew there was really no point in trying to
locate a clerk and then a bathroom as it would be over by
then. So I just waited a second and sure enough couldn't
hold it. It felt so strange......not like usual........then
panic hit like a brick! I was wetting my pants!!!!! I chose
not to put my Depends on because it was going to be a short
trip. Turned lots of heads walking out to my car in grey
slacks wet to the ankles!!!!!!! Oh Boy :(

Mary 01/07/1999


I know that lots of my friends have had minor and major
urges to urinate when pregant, and that quite a few of
them (and me, too) have had some pants wetting
incidents, or close calls. But it is a little weird to
see all these descriptions of times it happened. Guess
it makes sense, just a little strange. So to add my two
cents.

I have one child and am expecting another; I'm about
three months pregant, and hardly showing at all. It was
like that with my first; I went almost six months before
really showing. I'm pretty thin, so this was a surprise.
But both times at around this point I really began
having major urges to pee, sometimes coming on really
fast. Both the first pregnancy and this time I've done
pretty well, but not one hundred percent at all. Its one
thing to have to desperately pee when everyone knows
your expecting, or even as the post above says, to have
a major accident while shopping...at least people when
they stare know you pregant. But with me people just
don't know unless I tell them, although I've had to find
a bathroom in a big hurry a lot. That's not so bad, its
the times I've had accidents that are really
embarrassing, including one the other day while shopping
at the mall, waiting in line to pay. I just couldn't
wait and completely lost it. God, I was red faced,
trying to explain I was pregnant, not knowing who
believed, as it it really mattered one way or another.
I just stood there like a little girl as I puddled
around my feet. My jeans and shoes were wet....

Anyway, I don't konw what the solution is; somehow the
idea of wearing diapers all the time bothers me a lot.

Well, just sharing the experience

Amy 01/07/1999


The story about the accident and water breaking
happened to me. During my first I had leaking
accidents but nothing a large pad wouldn't hold. One
night when I was about 36 weeks I woke up to a wet bed
and thought Oh my god, it's time! I woke my husband
up, grabbed what we could (we had not packed "the
bag"), and drove like hell to the hospital. Sure
enough when we got there I was examined and was told
that I had not had a water break but rather had just
urinated in my bed. I was in such disbelief that I
as a little girl had wet the bed.
