Dude, five times in one night!

Back when SJ and I started this blog (waaaay back in aught five), that title would have been pretty self-explanatory. Either my crazy single self hooked up with that many guys or SJ (engaged at the time) was bragging about the number of shots she had done.

But, alas, it's been a busy four and a half years for us. Marriage, moving into multiple houses, dogs galore... oh, and that part where I got knocked up and SJ found herself with child. We've left behind those crazy girls nights filled with chocolate martinis, the random use of tiaras and some epic hangovers the next day (I learned my lesson the time I spent an entire funeral willing myself not to throw up in church).

Instead, we make mocktails out of juice and sip them out of martini glasses. And we discuss which pregnancy-related symptoms we have rather than which dude I should grant a second date to. And the only shopping I've been doing lately is for a cute outfit for the FunnyKid rather than cute shoes for myself.

And that title? Well, apparently, the FunnyKid thought my bladder made a nice, soft pillow and that's how many times I got up to pee last night. *Sigh* My, how times have changed.

haha, growing up has both its benefits and its drawbacks, I suppose. :-)

Okay, I love why you gave this post the title you did.

Even if you weren't pregnant, drinking slows down as you get older. Probably because there is a list of things that have to get done starting 8 a.m. the next day.

Just wait till the end, when you REALLY REALLY REALLY HAVE TO PEE RIGHT NOW OMG I CANNOT WAIT ONE SECOND LONGER....and then you go, and the total volume is, like, one teaspoon. And then ten minutes later, OMG I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM RIGHT THIS SECOND. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's been strangely satisfying to have my full bladder capacity back!

When you sit on the commode, baby shifts and some of the pressure on your bladder is relieved. As soon as you stand up, baby moves back into bladder bouncing position and you feel like you have to go again. So, as gross as it sounds, the best place to pee when you're pregnant is in the shower. You're already standing so baby has all his/her weight on your bladder. This is the only place you will be able to completely empty your bladder - sorry, it's just another sad mommy fact.

is it bad that I pee in the shower even though I am no longer pregnant? :)

Hmmm... shower peeing. I will have to give this a try tomorrow. :) My bladder is entering the stage of golf ball size. Which means I pee about the amount of a golf ball even when I feel like I can pee the world.
