TMI Thursday: Not for the poo-averse

Although if you're one of LiLu's TMI Thursday regulars, that's likely not an issue for you.

So Maude and I like few things more than a good delve into the disgustingly ridiculous. Like how much you might charge someone who wanted to poo on your foot.

Just to give you some background.

I always think there's nothing we haven't talked about. And then, somehow, there is.

So while I was in Amsterdam we were talking about the various inconvenient and sometimes painful aspects of pregnancy.

"And what is the deal with all the sticky sticky poo?"

"I know! And it's so hard to wipe off!"

"Nearly impossible. And it hurts!"

"Yes! You wipe and you wipe, and it just makes your butt raw."

"And even if you use water on your toilet paper, it only helps a bit."

"I know. And if you don't have a sink right there, spitting on the toilet paper does nothing."

"Which I guess indicates that even if you could lick your own anus, it really wouldn't help."



  1. I've been taking metamucil regularly during this pregnancy. It makes your poo nice and slippery and easily expelled.

  2. Excellent! I tried it in the beginning when I was so constipated, but then that stopped being an issue, and I just hated the Metamucil, so I quit.

  3. Baby wipes aren't just for babies anymore...

  4. this stream of conscious conversation is wonderful. my friends would be proud.

  5. i feel like i've had this convo with maxie before, minus the pregnancy part.

  6. I had a fairly similar conversation with Shawn last night after we caught the dogs giving each other rimjobs. It's like you said in your raisin post - it's about choices.

  7. Wow. Something about pregnancy I didn't know.

  8. Naturally.

    I think I get that kind, and I'm not even pregnant...

    That's probably not good.

  9. Oy, I'm glad I had lunch already. Just one more thing to look forward to...

  10. Fearless - It is true, and they are fantastic, but the issues is having them where you need them when you need them. I never think to take my purse with me to the bathroom at work.

    Mb - Ha! I'm glad to hear it. :)

    cavy - I don't actually know either of you, but I wouldn't doubt it.

    Hillary - Absolutely. Choices. Occasionally unfortunate choices.

    Jules - So many delightful little things I had no idea about!

    LiLu - It's not that it never happened before, but I think it's more of a frequency and tenderness of butt issue at this point.

    Maiden Metallurgist - I can't speak for everyone, but it turns out this is a lot more common than one might expect.

  11. And this is yet another reason to carry wipes in my purse.

    And yet another myth about the usefulness of prenatal yoga dispelled.

  12. I just scared my do by laughing so loud. That is great.

  13. hahahahahahahaahahaahahaha

    Oh good lord this post was funny

  14. I am right there with you. I hate the sticky pregnancy poos, but lucky for me, I only have them every 2 or 3 days.

    Unlucky for me, I have a serious aversion to poo and boogers right now. I can't even think about them or my stomach starts churning in Very Bad Ways.

  15. Pregnancy poos are an adventure of their very own...mine were of the "never could tell when or where" variety for many months...that paired with all day long sickness? Good times.

    And yes, baby wipes are lifesavers. I keep a pack in my purse at all times.


Tell me about it.
