Today's Overshare

How many times a day do you pee?

If all goes to plan, I pumped this morning for the last time. Ever.

I have been pregnant or nursing since September 2004. (Except for those two weeks between weaning Lumpyhead and getting pregnant with Lula.)

One expects to pee constantly whilst pregnant. But I didn't realize how rarely I needed to use the bathroom when lactating.

The drop-off in milk production + the re-introduction of caffeine (which: WHOOOOO!) = PEEING ALL THE DAMN TIME.

Seriously. How do you people (you non-lactating, caffeine consuming regular people) get anything done?

Thank you for explaining why I never get anything done!


PS: You have definitely done your duty in the motherhood department. Well done!

Interesting observation. I always have to go, too.

I'm not crazy, just well mixed! said...

I know you know about the whole pee-ing and pregnancy thing however, I would just like to say that I'm pretty sure *that* part of me is tired of it.

Well if you cut down on your water drinkage, then you only have the coffee to pee out, which means fewer pee trips.
