Okay, so, this is the fourth time I’ve been pregnant. Now, they’ll tell you (and you’ve probably heard this, or experienced it, if you’ve ever been pregnant) that you may wet yourself, particularly in the last trimester, when you laugh, cough, sneeze, etc.
Thankfully, I had never actually experienced this phenomenon. I understood the concept, and I felt sorry for the women who did have to experience this embarrassing moment, but it had never happened to me… until now…
I have a little cold. Nothing major. I’m just a bit more fatigued than usual, with a (rare) cough.
Last night, sitting in my horrible-for-my-butt computer chair, mucking about on Twitter — I sneezed. This was no baby sneeze. This wasn’t some ladylike achoo. This was tornado force winds exiting my face!
Seriously – I was dizzy afterward.
In the same moment that my face exploded, a tell-tale gush informed me that, in no uncertain terms, I had wet myself.
Crap! So, I got up from my computer chair and started waddling to the bathroom.
On the way to clean myself up, I ran in to my other half.
“What’s with you?” he asks.
“I just sneezed so hard, I peed my pants.”
He starts laughing hysterically at me. Then, he looks down, his smile fades, the laughter stops.
“Hey! Those are MY pants!”
“Okay, fine, so I just sneezed so hard I peed YOUR pants.”
Who’s laughing now?!
