What To Expect Wednesday
Let’s talk about one of the dirty little secrets about pregnancy that no one wants to tell you. You know the stuff they don’t mention in Mrs. B’s 11th grade health class covering sex education. The stuff you find out the first time you are pregnant and you don’t dare tell anyone else except maybe months later in a sleep deprived haze to some moms in your support group during an infant playdate. Oh yes those little secrets. Would have been nice had you mentioned those little things during our “woman chat” mom! And seriously public school, you could really do a better job of giving people, especially young women the real facts.
So to kick off our weekly What to Expect Wednesday column we are tackling the uncomfortable topic of urinating in your pants. As soon as you find out you are preggers, go out and buy lots of underwear, whatever kind you want. I recommend purchasing at least 2-3 extra packs. Pack away your nice stuff, break out the old stuff, the granny panties, whatever you have that you don’t mind ruining. Then buy yourself a few extra nice pairs for post pregnancy or maybe encourage your girlfriends to present you with some at your shower.
Do you know why you need all these extra underwear????? Because…..
YOU. WILL. PEE. YOUR. PANTS. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY…..
Okay maybe not every day, but definitely the majority of them especially during the 3rd trimester. You will ruin your underwear and honestly who wants to wear them after knowing you have repeatedly peed in them. Nothing screams sexy post baby more than crawling into bed with your pee panties.
What are some of the things that caught you off guard when you were pregnant the first time? Do you have a topic you want us to cover for What to Expect Wednesday? If so comment below and tell us!
