Re: so how much do you share with your DH?

  • I'm like you, except that my husband is NOT okay with it at all. He yells at me for farting, and when I forget to close the door while I'm pooping.

    ETA - Once I got a tampon stuck (NO idea how that happened, I think it was one of those ridiculous OB ones) and I started freaking out about it. He absolutely refused to help me at all. He wouldn't even come near the bathroom! I was crying on the verge of a panic attack and he was all, "EW! That's so gross!" Ok, but it's ok to stick other things in there? I mean really?

  • DH and I are pretty open with each other - we're not ashamed to discuss things like 'roids (yup, he's seen the one I have) or gas or the bleeding I had around 9 weeks, etc.  We're adults in our 30's - one would hope we can talk frankly about bodily functions w/o getting all "sqqqueeeee!  Ew, you make poopy?" about it.

    We don't have an open bathroom door policy, however. Some things can be talked about it, IMO, but should be kept private. I don't need to see any of that and vice versa.  ;-)

  • DH is my best friend. I tell him everything and he lets me know I do with "You told me that 3 times already." Shuush goober, you're supposed to let me vent.

    He is not allowed to come in the potty room though. I draw the line. I don't watch you poop so back the hell up when I'm doing it. He watched the c-section with Emma. When I was in recovery feeling sorry for myself that I didn't get to have a vbac he's telling me "You did so great! You have no idea what I saw you go through. That was worse than any vbac!"

    We talk to each other all the time and there are times we do grind each others nerves but I think that is part of marriage. I love him more now than I did when we got married and on my drive home I am still excited to see him get home from work every day.

  • LOL I'm the same way lol and he's like "do you really have to tell me all these things!" and laughs :D

  • Nope not wierd.  If I have to go through this, he's gonna hear about it LOL.  Last night I had him look at an ingrown hair in my Hoo-ha and get it out....so we're pretty comfortable with each other.  He actually said "let me look at it and I'll fix it for you."  He's not easily grossed out, so it works.  Though I felt a lot better afterwards, I would have rather him be doing something else down there LOL!

  • I also share everything with my DH.  Like you said, he is my best friend and we are very rarely apart from each other.  Everything except the pooping/farting/bathroom door open thing!  But the snot scare would be something I would share!

  • We're totally open. He is my best friend and totally supportive. Remember the ass pimple on our honeymoon? Ugh.

    I still don't want to poop in front of him though...

  • My hubby and I are pretty much open bout everything. The only thing is I cannot poop in front of him lol. I can do pretty much anything else but that. But I can definatly talk to him about it or anything bodily related. He's very open with me as well about that stuff. We are pretty much open books. Although he does grumble at me for all the gas  I pass around him these days LOL.

  • DH is my BEST friend.  We share everything you mentioned.  I know some couples prefer to keep some of the gross details private, but DH and I find humor in a lot of it - childish yes, but that is just us.  Plus, I like the comfort we have and lack of embarrassment re: uncomfy or gross issues.  It is nice not to have to worry about being embarrassed in front of DH.  I consider myself very lucky to be married to my best friend.  I love him and could not imagine my life with anyone else.

  • I am not embarrased to talk about anything with H.  He was seen it all at my best and worst.  But I am a super private person, so I don't share a lot unless I feel that it is relevant, or something that I want/need him to help me with.  I would not talk bleeding with anyone.  I barely like talking about bodily functions in my own head let alone saying it out loud.  Even to him.

  • We talk about everything but we dont do everything in front of eachother. Always closed door during bathroom visits except for the occasional peeing. One thing I am very very fortunate for is that my hubby does not fart in front of me! I told him from the beginning it is rude and sicks me out and if he needs to he can go in another room and he does :)
  • We are the same way and I would rather hang out with him than any of my friends...although I do have girls night out occasionaly.

    The only thing we don't do is poop in front of eachother...but really I can't think of anyone that I would! lol

  • You're not alone! We are a little too open for most people. I also tell my DH everything that goes on with my body, since I am pregnant he's actually interested in every single thing.

    Some people just are that comfortable though, and that's okay too.

  • I draw the line at actually going to the bathroom in front of him - I'm a private pooer, what can I say.

    But I do tell him everything and anything to do with what's going on, and he is now as invested in my bowel situation as I am, after the events of Tuesday (ER for impacted bowel).

    I would say there is is no topic that is off limits for us, esp. in pregnancy. He's been with me through all of this, including the RE appointments and testing, so whatever boundries there were really have been eliminated.

  • Oh yeah, everything. We're completely ourselves around each other, and myself includes the pooping, farting, gross bodily excrements and all. We both draw the line at wiping, lol. No one in the room for that.

    He thought the time when I was puking and peed on myself at the same time was totally hilarious. If I didn't feel so horrible, I would've laughed along with him.

  • wow...we share EVERYTHING. but like most of you other ladies, the only thing we don't do in front of eachother is pooing. EEWWW!
  • Girl I tell my hubby everything.  He is my best friend too!  I fart in front of him, poop, etc.  I think that's how it should be.  If you can't be real with your husband who can you be real with!

    You are not weird!  That's a healthy realtionship :)

  • I am totally like this! I went poop while he was in the shower the other day and then showed it to him (I thought it had a weird color or something). He just laughs at me and gives me a look like "you are so weird". 

     

    Edit: He is pretty weird too though. He was reading me a book the other day on pregnancy and every time he said the word vag!na he started giggling.

  • If something is interesting, I'll share it.  But we have a closed door bathroom policy and I don't think I would text him something gross.

  • we both tell each other everything... however, the pooping is kept private I can't even pee if he's in the bathroom with me... I know he totally wouldn't have a problem watching me poop but I sure do.
  • I'm the same way.  DH laughs sometimes...but none of it bothers him!

    You just made me tear up at work thanks! Smile Prego hormones...anyway, this is exactly how I feel about DH too.  I don't share everything with him, he gets a little icked out with some of the more bathroom related PG symptoms.  This was how he was long before I got KU'd though, he always has a cow if I fluffy in front of him or if I "blow up the bathroom" so I knew that going into all this.  He has been very understanding of when I don't feel good or if I'm overly tired - normally he's one of those "suck it up and tough it out" kinda guys and that has made me stronger and better able to deal with these things, but it is also nice to have him be more nurturing than he usually is.

  • we are just like you.  i don't getting all bent out of shape about taking a dump or farting or talking about how bad your period sucks.  sorry - it's a human thing that's bound to happen and if you can't deal with it you're a big ol' p-word.

    that said,  i'm not going to have burping contests or anything with him, but yeah...

  • We are the same way. I give him blow by blow descriptions of everything that happens to me and he does the same. I don't know why we aren't grossed out by any of that. Sometimes when he watches me throw up or pee myself I am worried that he won't find me sexy later but that hasn't happened so far.

  • Same for me, and I don't think it's weird at all!  The only thing we do differently is stick to a doors-closed policy when pooping, but that's only b/c if DH didn't close the door there would be an awful toxic green cloud filling the entire house!

    Same here. I like our closed door bathroom policy! I tease him if he stinks up the bathroom and we occasionally fart in front of each other--oh, and recently I've plucked my eyebrows in front of him, etc.

     5 years together and I think *some* secrets are ok. :)
