Every time I sit down to go to the bathroom I am constantly impressed with how much my bladder can hold and subsequently release without the feeling of urgently needing to pee. It was the exact opposite throughout pregnancy.
Especially because the second my baby latches on to nurse I feel Instant and unquenchable thirst and can down 32oz. of water per feeding. I’m just so grateful for the ability my bladder has to regain normal function and capacity even after being smooshed for 9 months.
I feel like I should write an ode to my bladder:
Oh my enduring bladder
You are one I should never take for granted
full of contradictions, you bring both discomfort and relief.
I have spent months being mostly annoyed at how often you have demanded my presence in the restroom for your own remission.
Then there were those few weeks in the winter months that being burdened with a cough you didn't even wait for a toilet before extrication.
I could be mad, but I'm not.
I am impressed with how well you took care of me, us really.
Eliminating so much extra from my own body, then giving up your own space for our sweet little girl.
Sacrificing your own comfort for hers.
Thanks. You, me, and Kidneys, let's be besties for life, OK?

Education is KEY to setting yourself up for your best possible birth. Knowing your options and how to advocate for yourself makes a huge difference.
With the main reason people develop hemorrhoids is from pressure in the bottom, it seems unlikely many women will experience pregnancy and birth unscathed.
