Bodily Functions

  • I just threw up in my mouth. I thought it was a burp, until the contents of my stomach came into the back of my mouth. I freaked out and swallowed. Yummy. So, it looks like I might be going back on my proton pump inhibitor soon.
  • That liquidy discharge I have been experiencing? Yeah…I’m not so sure it’s just discharge. I noticed the other day that my undies smelled like I’d been hiking all day and had to pop a squat (to pee) and didn’t use toilet paper. So, apparently my CF cough has already caused me be to become a member of the pee pants party.
  • Pooping has become an Olympic event: rare and very difficult when it does occur. I never understood why people spent so much time in the bathroom. I mean, just get in there, go, and get out. Why spend 15 minutes with a turd under your butt while you read a magazine? Go curl up on the couch and read. Now I get it. It is frustrating! Now, bathroom time is when I read my pregnancy books. And, let me just say, when I actually do have to poop, it is exciting and I must take advantage of the opportunity right away, even if it means I am on hold with the doctor's office. And, pooping in public is not quite as embarrassing as it used to be, because I'm so happy it's actually happening. Although, the other day I was a bit annoyed because I had to go at the airport, I was the only one in the bathroom, and the bathroom attendant decided to sit outside my stall the entire time I was in there. Seriously? A little privacy, please?

Pee Pants Club! WOO HOO! Proud member!

I was with you on not understanding what took people so long to poop. Now I get it. I hope I can return to the Under-1-Minute-Club after the shorties pop out.

Oh I totally forgot about your coughing when I was whining about mine! Yeah, be careful on the can though, it's not too early for hemroids :( 7 hrs down to NY and I got inducted into that club :( I'm also realizing a tiny part of your world since I've been sick for so long, between all the mucus from that and the extra mucus my Dr said you get when you're pregnant I feel like I'm choking on it all the time.
Hang in there, we're just getting to the fun parts :)

If you think pooping's hard now, wait until after the babies are born. Ouch. ;)
