Stick Figure Adventures in Pregnant Urination
By LizSquared on June 19, 2013
Liz C., you know I have no shame. Today, I prove it to the world.
You see, I have reached a point in this pregnancy when things get complicated. Normal things that normal ladies are supposed to be able to do easily and without fuss become Olympics-worthy challenges of stamina and fortitude.
This morning, I am specifically talking about going pee. At a whopping 21 weeks gestation, this little bun has the power to ninja-kick my bladder into believing that I need to go pee approximately every 2 minutes. Maybe 4.5 minutes, if I'm really lucky.
So, this morning, with baby playing Wipe Out on my urine-holding bits, I haul my rotund ass to the bathroom to take a leak (yeah, take a leak - keeping it classy up in here).
Once I get there, I sit down and wait. And wait. I twiddle my thumbs, maybe play a little Ticket to Ride on my phone, and think to myself, "A few moments ago, I really thought I was going to explode from having to pee." Yet, still, nothing comes out.
Annoyed that, despite sitting on the toilet for at least 30 seconds, I’ve made no tinkle, I think to myself, “Maybe the baby is in the way,” so try diligently to “lift” the wee wombfruit out of the way.
