3rd Trimester

Is it hard for you to wipe?

It is getting so hard for me to wipe when I pee.  I feel like my arm doesn't reach around my belly Indifferent I get out of breath every time I go to the bathroom (which we all know is every 15 minutes) because I have to bend forward for my arm to reach.  Pregnancy is a workout!! Stick out tongue

    Yep, I've missed the past two times I've had to pee in a cup at the doctors office. No problems with wiping yet though. 


  • Hilarious!  I was thinking about this last night.  My arm barely reaches anymore!

  • Not too much.  I normally just cradle my belly in my free arm, lift my belly a little, and go to town with the wiping.  Front to back is always good, too, but I don't feel "clean" if I wipe that way.

  • yes! and i get way more upset when dh only leaves a couple sheets on the roll. do not make me grope in the cabinet for another roll of tp in the dark while i worry about falling and getting stuck between the toilet and the tub!

  • With two babies in the way, I'm definitely having this problem. I've found that if I more or less stand up to wipe, I can reach much better for some reason.

    I agree!  Sitting must make my belly protrude more and I can't get my arm down there.

    Yes.

    I am investing in those flushable wet wipes - one good swipe and I feel clean. 

    Good idea, adding them to to my Target list.

  • Yes.  I get tired just trying to get out of bed in the morning!  I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

    OMGosh!!!! I was just sitting on the potty yesterday balling my eyes out while DH laughed at me cause I can't reach as well anymore! I totally get I was balling cause EVERYTHING makes me cry, but it makes me feel better and even smile to think others are having "an arm shrinking issue".

  • I am genuinely baffled when I see posts like this (there were many when I was pregnant with my first) - how is it hard?!?  I got to 41w4d with no issues (and a GIGANTIC belly!) last time.  Do you reach around your stomach or something?  I am seriously confused.  I just reach down and wipe.

    Going back and reading all the responses, this is my reaction.

    Well, that and "What kind of T-Rex arms do you people have?"

    I might have to wipe now b/c I almost peed myself!  Now when we watch Toy Story 20,000 times this week, I will think of T-Rex wiping himself. 

  • Sometimes but getting to the bathroom ( like you said EVERY 15 mins) is much harder than wiping lol.

    Yes it is getting harder to do much of anything anymore...but oh man you're lucky. My bathroom breaks are more like every TWO minutes! No
