At almost full term, all it takes is a lean to one side or a wiggle from junior and I can do nothing to stop it. Been wearing sanitary towels for weeks but this time it just was too much and leaked everywhere and I had to drive home with a big wet bum. Don't think anyone saw as I was getting DD into the car at the time. Still feel mortifyingly embarrassed though!

Sorry to be graphic - but tell me I'm not the only one who is so incontinent!

When I was quite heavily pregnant with ds I had to run after dd to stop her running into the road. Result - big wet patch on trousers - and I was out at a kids party .

when pregnat with dd - i sat on the sofa one night when dh asked what the wet patch on my trousors was - it turned out i'd wet myself and didn't even know.

I have yet to do this, luckily... but just wanted to say that this thread has made me laugh so much!

A friend's mum had the shits once and they were at this kind of botanical garden place which had a raised boardwalk because you weren't supposed to walk on the protected plants. Anyway, we all know what comes next... she ended up jumping off the boardwalk and squatting amongst these protected flowers, shitting and then heard a small boy say
"Daddy, what's that lady doing?"
The best bit? she got it all on her trousers, and all anyone had for her to change into was a big pair of simpsons boxer shorts! LOLOL

Didn't during pregnancy, but after a ventouse delivery, it was only my pants that held everything in. On one particular day, in a garden centre, they failed!

PMSL seems kind of appropriate here...

I held it in all round B&Q then did the biggest pee of my life next to a tree in the car park, hiding behind my friend's coat. When I went back, it had wilted!!

Tena lady save me several times

No pregnant and not pee but an IBS sufferer 4 years ago. Out with dh 2 weeks after I met him and had a really bad attack. Made the excuse that I's come on and needed to buy new pants. I'll leave the rest to your imagination.

misdee Fri 21-Jan-05 15:56:46

just to make you feel better - (and I wasn't even pregnant) - when I had just started my new job, our boss took us all out to a fantastic traditional curry house in Brick Lane. I had far too much lager to drink and when we left and had walked some distance, I realised I was BURSTING for the loo. There are no public conveniences around there so out of pure desperation, I crouched down behind some parked cars and did a MASSIVE wee in the drain on the road.

Next day, I turn on the news to find that a bomb had exploded in Brick Lane in a building practically next to where I knelt down in the street. They announced that the police had loads of CCTV footage to go through and would be publishing pictures of people they thought might be able to help. I couldn't watch the news for around 2 weeks so terrified was I that my naked bum would be shown as someone who could potentially help.

I also peed all down my leg when pregnant, busting for the loo, just sat down and a field mouse ran across my foot. Jumped up, screamed the place down and pissed myself.

would have been ok except we were staying with the in-laws in the rural house in France and the MIL came running in thinking I'd gone into early labour.

Pagan Fri 21-Jan-05 15:59:23

ROFL - thank you all. This has fair cheered me up

Lua Fri 21-Jan-05 16:27:32

You are absolutely right! Was in the second set of pelvic exercises while reading the thread by the time I saw your message.
Bursted in tears... and wetted my pants !!!!

Ok here goes - as for peeing my pants - I actually do this regularly and have done ever since I can remember. I know my dm once took me to the doc about it when I was about 10 which was mortifying. The pills he prescribed didnt help - and I've never fessed up since - to anyone. PFE since childbirth don't seem to have made any diff. It's worse when I have AF. It is a hugely devestating problem for me and I can't believe I'm typing this. Seriously is there anything that would help, other than PFE?? By the way - I'm not tlking about 'a bit damp' - it's far worse than that
