  • haha YES! My belly makes it so hard. I am pregnant with my first also, and this is something that I never really thought about before recently, when I started experiencing this. It just gets harder and harder to reach.

  • You should be wiping from behind. You wipe front to back.

  • I blot. Also, lean forward when you are done peeing- you will be suprised by the extra pee that comes out. Also- I wear pantyliners to absorb any that I may miss (I am 34 weeks... belly is getting pretty big)

  • I remember that. It did get really hard. We have a very small bathroom so it was hard to move around to get in a positon where I was able to wipe lol. I just did the best I could and took a shower every night. I was able to clean alot better in the shower with room to move around.
