I really didn't think I was putting too much pressure on my side or stomach while I slept. I've been very careful to not do so, and most of the time I end up on my back anyway (not meant to be dirty talk by any means).
So, I awake with a startle for some reason and quickly realize there is moisture on my sheets...yuck...I immediately realize what this substance is and begin my repititious chant of "OH SH T!!!"
Thirty minutes later I was clean, the bed was as clean as it could be without waking my husband to change the sheets. It really wasn't that big of a mess at all...not in comparison to baby mess, flu mess, etc.; you get my drift.
Seriously though, how humiliating!!! I really haven't been unhappy with my accessory at all since I've been home, but this morning was the first time I wished I were normal again. My pitty party lasted just a few minutes before I snapped it together and went to the living room to watch recorded CSI's. So, *sigh* has this happened to you? It's makes me nervous to sleep on my sides.
Anyway, I really just needed to voice my situation b/c it's not anything I'm going to chit-chat about with my family and friends!
Thanks you guys!!!
