@panterapeach:  Oh no. I’ve heard about the loose bladder thing. Is this the first time that has happened? I’m so worried about that happening! I think I’ll start wearing pads *just in case*.

My tingly, hot, half-asleep left leg for the last few weeks while trying to go to sleep. Wasn’t expecting that!

My mood swings…was fine cooking dinner the other night talking with Darling Husband, then just started sobbing about something trivial while stirring the dinner in the pot. Darling Husband must think I’ve gone mad. haha

Acne…like the worst kind of acne I’ve ever had in my whole life. And nothing I do seems to make a bit of difference. On my face, back, chest. Ugh

Leg cramps…when you can’t get into a comfortable position at night no matter how many pillows you prop up and around yourself. 

And then there’s heartburn…it always seems to happen when I’m the most hungry too. I go to eat something yummy for dinner and two bites in am plagued with killer heartburn and can’t take another bite. It’s happened twice this week already.

At 38wks I have developed the most beautiful cankles in the world. I’m so happy it’s not sandal season!

We won’t discuss the pizza that my face has become.

@panterapeach:  I have the same issue, it happens to me sometimes when I sneeze or laugh and I haven’t been to the restroom in the past um 30 minutes.  I told Darling Husband, I need to bring a change of clothes with me, he thinks it’s hysterical. 

I have some awful heartburn, trouble sleeping (I was a back sleeper before), my belly button is slowly moving to an outtie, and as described above I have no bladder control.  🙁

Ugh … how about leaking colostrum, leaving crusty/wet spots on your bras and pyjamas every day.

Oh, and the lovely leukorrhea … aka massive amounts of vaginal discharge that start in the second trimester and mean that you are stuck either with pantiliners every day or in soggy underwear.

Add in the snoring and heartburn at night now in my 3rd trimester, oh and the burping … I have to burp constantly!

I feel so beautiful *tear*

I never passed gas in front of my husband until this. Sometimes it just flies right out. I also “Sniss” all the time (sneeze and piss). I also do it sometimes if I cough or if I gag. I feel like I walk around smelling like a depends. I choked on a piece of ice while walking through the dining and just full on peed on the floor. 

I also now have little random hairs sprouting out of my chin. Ick. 

And this is the newest nastiest thing. I can no longer squat over a toilet in public, so I have to sit. I make sure that I carry my own toilet covers, just in case public restrooms don’t have them, however, my stomach is so big now that when I spread my legs sometimes my tummy hits the toilet seat!!! Ewww! So Now I have to figure how to hold up my tummy while trying to stand back up off the toilet.

I am not looking forward to wetting my pants, but I know it’s coming!

I have never been a burper! I can’t even remember the last time before I was pregnant, now it’s constant. Gross!

I agree with the copious amounts of discharge, I wear liners every day and night.

Is anyone else really sweaty? I walk up the stairs and I’m huffing and puffing like I just ran a marathon and look like I did too!

Oh yea, the discharge… how could I forget about that! 

 @JewishBride:  I second the sweating.  I’m also hot a lot and I used to run really cold.  I turned off the heat to our house a month ago and I also now keep the window open for a breeze in addition to sleeping with the fan on.  Darling Husband loves it since he runs hot….

Oh and burping.  I randomly burp all the time.  I was in a meeting the other day, and I couldn’t control it.  I just said “sorry, pregnancy” and everyone started laughing.

@panterapeach:  I think I’ve told this before, but just in case:

During the 2nd trimester (when I still had bad morning sickness) I had a particularly bad bout where I didn’t even make it into the bathroom.  There I stood in the middle of the kitchen, trying to aim for the sink, and I was throwing up so hard that I peed myself and it went all over me and all over the kitchen floor.

Darling Husband was very sweet, and cleaned up the whole mess, but I locked myself in the bathroom and cried because I was so mortified!

@Quietserenity:  Oh God.  I think I’m going to have to tell Darling Husband that I changed my mind and that we’re never having kids.

oh gosh. this thread made me laugh out loud.

 

I also have terrible acne – as a little sidebar, what are you guys using for it? I’m using a Dove bar of soap = NOT WORKING.

I toot when I sneeze (so, so embarrassing..I haven’t had to sneeze in public yet thank GOD). 

Random gags from no where..thank you baby for not taking away the morning sickness after first tri. sigh.
