A very wise friend once told me that pregnancy can be incredibly undignified. It's so true. Your body becomes, well all kinds of crazy things. Sometimes I'm not even sure this is my body.
Case in point: A month or so ago I was getting ready to go out with B.
I went to the bathroom, took a shower, stepped out of the shower and sneezed. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but apparently my body stored just enough
Baby pushing on bladder + weird pregnancy symptoms +sneezing and subsequent contraction of stomach muscles = involuntary urination.
I proceeded to turn around, turn the shower back on and clean off. B was wondering what the heck I was doing and I was wondering how in the world that happened if I just went to the bathroom.
Then there were the 3 weeks I had a cough. It's hard to really cough and clench at the same time. It's just not always possible.
Or the time I sneezed when my mom and I were in Babies R Us. I don't have dainty sneezes. Most of the time I have those loud, echoing, bionic sneezes. I had to run to the bathroom. I believe I was rude to the employee who was pleasantly asking me if I needed anything. The fun part of the Babies R Us bathroom is that they have kids mirrors and sinks. This way you can just stand there and see if the wet spot shows while you're standing or if only you can see it. It's nice to know when you need to carry your purse awkwardly as you walk to the car.
Don't even get me started on B making me laugh. I feel like I spend half my time at home running to the bathroom as I'm laughing hysterically. I'm pretty sure he likes to make me pee my pants. As if I'm not already sexy enough.
~here I am being sexy~
Things seem to have gotten better... or maybe it's just that I've gotten over my cold. It might be that I'm in the bathroom every 30 seconds.
Perhaps I've just gotten used to it all.
PS. Thanks for the good thoughts on the insulin verdict. Due to a change in insurance and a lack of the correct paperwork I was not able to see the doctor. Argh. Until I get it worked out I'm following a very strict and un-fun diet to keep things under control. Now think of me and go have a BLT and a chocolate malt.
