And if you don't fall asleep fast, your stupid body doesn't allow you to sleep unless you go pee, so you end up going to the bathroom a couple of times before you can fall asleep?
For anyone that read a puppy can hold their bladder for the number of hours they are months old (4 months = 4 hours) THROW IT OUT THE WINDOW AND RESET YOUR EXPECTATIONS. This is really just for knowing how long it's okay to leave them in the crate.
I was going insane with my puppy (10 months) having accidents after going outside 2-3 hours prior. He's a small breed (border terrier, 17lbs). I would be in denial that he looked like he needed to go out. But I've finally come to respect that he is telling me he has to go out when he stops running and just stares me down. Maybe he's going to get better with holding it. But I realize I'm just being unfair if he's giving me the look, and I don't take him out. He'll always pee when I take him out. Gotta respect the dog's needs and not hold on to your own expectations too tightly.
After years of abusing my body, it’s finally caught up to me. I’ve struggled with an extremely weak bladder for such a long time and I just couldn’t hold it in at all. As soon as I felt the need to go to the bathroom it was already too late by then. I tried my best to position myself and remove the blanket from me, but I know he knows. The first thing he said to me was “holy shit were you sweating a lot last night?”. I had to lie and tell him that was why, but I’m sure he could tell. Especially when he asked me to remove all the bedding to wash it. Thanks for ruining a potential third date anorexia.
I can drink coffee again, guys - COFFEE. Famotidine before an acidic meal keeps me from having flares, and bladder training has helped with that as well. I feel 95% normal again, and after years of hell this is a freaking DREAM.
Edit: I take it generally when I'm about to eat acidic trigger foods, like coffee and spicy foods. Depending on how many of those foods/meals I have a day is how much many I take, one per meal, an hour before the meal.
Edit 2: I believe that the pepcid along with bladder training helped with bladder pain upon filling
This is kinda a vent / rant but also ask for advice and experiences tbh so i dont feel so alone.
The last 2 years i have had issues with my health. 2 years ago i got my first bladder infection at 19, i got it treated at the doctors with antibiotics etc.
This really was the catalyst for my issues, i started getting them monthly. I followed all the advice, during sex and not during sex. I then started getting bladder pain that would go away after an evening, doctor didnt think they were UTI's but maybe inflammation? I had an ultrasound, bladder all fine, also got my ovaries ultrasound and doctor said it looked like pcos.
I have only had one uti in the past year now, but it just doesnt feel right. I dont feel like sex feels like it did, plus the amount of anxiety i got from sex after that really put pressure on my relationship. My boyfriend felt undesired, i felt pressured and shit about myself. I felt like the lighthearted enjoyment out of sex had been taken away and replaced with anxiety. My sex drive plummeted.
Moving on to november 2019, i started to get extremely irritated down there so i assumed it was thrush which i had before. I did standard treatment as advised, didnt go away, cue like 4 months of basically not being able to do anything remotely sexual and if i did it flared up again. Went to the doctor.. Again..sent off some tests for anything it could be and came back with thrush.. Again.
I am careful with things, only wash with water or an emolient based soap max once a day, change clothes and underwear after exercising, wash clothes with unscented non-bio wash and no fabric conditioner, dont wear underwear at night and only cotton underwear, etc etc etc
But i am STILL having issues. Going to the doctor is quite difficult right now because im not allowed to go back to university where i am registered due to covid. The doctors where i am at home are useless, its impossible to get an appointment.
I feel completely stuck. I went on the progesterone only pill a few months back and recently came off as it killed my already low sex drive completely and I bled everyday.
I am only 21, i feel so upset about it. Its disrupted my body image, impacted my relationship to the point im thankful of quarantine as i dont have to worry about dissapointing my partner who has quite a high sex drive. I have almost broken up with him a couple times.
Im not really looking for medical advice per say, I am going to contact my doctor again and see wha... keep reading on reddit ➡
This actually just happened and I’m still kinda confused myself. I woke up from like a wet dream of sorts and had to take a number two 💩. Because of the dream, the lil guy was still excited and I couldn’t aim it down into the toilet. So I did what anyone would do in my situation.
I pinched the tip so I could let a couple turds fall without pissing all over the floor. All is going good until the pressure builds too high. Now I’m desperately trying to aim it down into the toilet, turd still half sticking out of my ass, but I never quite get it in and BOOM!
Something snapped? I honestly don’t know but all the pee came rushing out and it shot all over the walls and floor, but a stream of blood came out right alongside it. And the pain! Jesus Christ.
The pain is the only thing that got the lil dude to settle down. So now I’m finishing my number two with blood dripping from my penis and I don’t know what the exact cause is. Kinda scared tbh
TL;DR. Tried to hold my bladder via my hand. Bladder broke through with a vengeance and tore something along the way
Edit: The only reason I haven’t gone to the doctor yet is because I just turned 26 and was kicked off my mom’s health insurance. And I have been procrastinating signing up for my own.
So a doctors visit might cost me an arm and a leg right now. And a dick, as people have informed me of below
2nd edit: i appreciate the helpful responses. I wish the other commenters would stop making me laugh though. Only makes the pain worse
Last edit: I went to sleep hoping all would be good when I awoke. And this is how my bed cover looked when I just woke up. NSFW. No nudity, but it is blood that came from a dick so that’s that. And please don’t judge me for not having sheets on the bed. I was in too much pain to make my bed up before I laid down and those shits must have slipped off
Wtf I JUST peed, how are you already unhappy?? I go to pee before bed, brush my teeth... and all seems well.... Haul myself into bed and cocoon into my C shaped pregnancy pillow. Before I can lift my blanket over myself, I think “yah I’m pretty sure I need to go again... but I probably don’t really.. do I?” Stop playing mind games with me! -_-
warning hella gross?? lol | and no one talks about this cute side effect because its fucking disgusting | its even worse when you're outside in a STORE and there's no toilet available and you've fucked your whole body and bladder | let's not talk about what happened
am i alone w/ this?
I seem to suffer with bladder retention and a slow flow during flares, is this common for others too?
Wow first silver! Thank you so much!
Im 5 weeks into my 3rd HG pregnancy. I have to say, mentally I am taking this horrible ride much better than I have in the past. Peeing my pants every time i vomit is a new, embarassing development for me though. I just cant believe I am 33 and peeing myself lol. Please tell me I am not the only one or even make fun of me lol, I need a pick me up today.
I had a fresh transfer a few months ago.
I drank 2 pints (39oz/2 big glasses) of water 1 hour before my appointment time. By the time the doctor was available, it had been about 1h 30m total. I had to let a bit of wee out 3 times while waiting for her because I was so sore and convinced I was going to pee myself.
I don’t even remember the transfer because I was that worked up about it. I just sat breathing heavily staring at the ceiling.
It was AWFUL.
The doctor said my bladder was full, but didn’t say to was too full. She didn’t have any issues with it being too empty either, despite me letting a lot out wee out while waiting.
Anyway, my next transfer is on Friday and I’m not doing the same again. I’m thinking 1 pint 30 minutes before my appointment time instead.
What was your full bladder plan? Any tips?
UPDATE: thanks very much guys for sharing all of your approaches! I’m going drink 1 pint half an hour before my appointment time I think.
FINAL UPDATE: my hospital asked me to come in at 1100 and my transfer would be maybe 1130 or 1145, but they’d be really busy that day so it might be a bit delayed. They said to go to the loo when I come to my appointment at 1100 THEN drink water. I drank around 500ml of water at 1100.
I felt like I needed to pee by 1130. By 1145, I was starting to struggle. I eventually got taken in at 1205. They had issues seeing my uterus as my bladder was too full. I had to relieve a bit of wee. It was all good after that and the transfer went well. Now I must wait!
