Yup, no such thing as TMI on this blog.
"Needing to go to the toilet is very common at the start of the first trimester and end of third trimester. You will more than likely have a break in between."
Why do so many 'information and advice' articles and books say this? Ask 50 pregnant women and I guarantee those who had that nice break are in the minority.
Telling women this sets us up (ok me) to whinge and complain even more. This pregnancy I have not had a break AT ALL. All day at least every half hour, all night it stretches to every hour.
This is when I get that feeling. But do I go straight away? Of course not. I am a grown adult who still tries to ignore it, cause, you know, it might go away. Ha!
Empathy to all the Mummas out there who know what I am talking about.
Here's to the last trimester!
