Why pregnant women need their own bathroom.

I remember both times when I was pregnant the constant trips to the bathroom…for the first three months to pee and then pray there was no blood on the toilet paper and then the last three months when I could have really benefitted from having my own catheter and all the months in between. Let’s face it…there is a lot of “bathroom” stuff happening when you are pregnant and if like me, you harboured hopes of regaining your sexy self after the baby was born, having your own bathroom would have been a great thing. There is no greater mood killer than heartburn, flatulence or hemorrhoids and for many of my friends these were the stories of pregnancy that got the biggest laughs. I remember my one friend, after having given birth to her fourth child thought she would try to get back her pre pregnant shape by taking up running.
Turns out things had loosened up a bit “down there” and she had to cut her run short because she found it was tough to cover any distance when you are having to keep your thighs clamped together or risk peeing on yourself. Kegel exercises really helped her so check out Kelli’s blog on how to do them correctly.
