a quick question

so has anyone else who's been pregnant before had the distinct feeling that your baby is about to fall out while you're, say... blowing your nose? or maybe while pushing your poop out?

just wondering.

maybe it's time for some kegels.

Sounds like a really odd and uncomfortable sensation...I really can't imagine.
Good luck! :o)

You just made me laugh out loud. I'm baby-less, so I have no idea. But don't sneeze too hard!

Haha, you made me laugh so hard! I don't know if I felt like she was going to fall out but I definitely wondered that same thing while going to the bathroom.

haHA!! love it! i totally felt that way with sayer, from very early on, in fact. i would literally cross my legs when blowing my nose... seriously! i think i did kegels for like a day, and then decided i was too lazy.

Becky said...

Seriously... you make me laugh :)

Yeah, you get that sensation more with each subsequent pregnancy... I won't even tell you how the fourth one feels!!! (But yes, it can get worse! I think that's why I will never know what a fifth pregnancy does to your body!!!)

Carlie said...

It gets worse with each one! Good luck!

Yes!!! This last one was totally like that. I seriuosly thought she would just fall out sometimes when I went pee. Its horrible. I was worried about it the whole pregnancy. I ask the doc how to not have that the next time and she basically said to do an insane amount of Kegels from now til then and it "might" help. How did our moms have so many pregnancies?
By the way arent you not supposed to strain while pregnant?

THanks for writing the word "kegel" in your blog! I laughed out loud! I've only had the one baby and didn't feel the falling out yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time!

Congrats on the baby boy! How exciting. You are my hero with all of your races you are running while pregnant, what a woman! And, yeah, good luck with the Kegels. I'm with Morgan, I remember like once every few months I should do those, do about ten, and decide it ain't worth it.

I have not. But maybe it's different for guys.

Jessica said...

Every day I feel that exact way. I am only 27 weeks and I have had mutiple people say "it looks like you have dropped"... No I just carry low. It also feels like everthing is tearing. So fun.

I only had these kind of feelings after the child came. :)

Gross Whitney. You best not let my nephew come out in a toilet full of your excrement. :)

Yeah, I knew I was pregnant with Gavin when I sneezed one day and peed my pants. It's like the muscles of my entire nether-region surrendered on notification of the pregnancy. Good luck!

You are so funny. Yeah....don't have any experience with that yet:) That is so exciting that you are having ANOTHER boy! I have been pretty sick but things are starting to look better. I am hoping it stops really soon! I think my husband is sick of being my slave:)
