It's probably because as you said ' I don't even eat before I go bed! I don't eat anything after 8pm. So by the time I'm in bed it's been 3 hours since I have had anything' therefore your tummy doesn't have anything in it to digest so it's just watery output. During the day when you're eating substantial meals so your tummy DOES have something to digest and output, you'll have thicker output.
yupyup, i agree with that. i used to eat before bedtime to avoid the liquid, problem is that that extra little meal isn't exactly calorie free lol, so i stopped doing it. consistancy is different all the time anyway, i don't worrry about
it anymore, whatever comes out, comes out.
4 or 5 times a night i think is pretty excessive though! how much are you actually emptying? i usually have a 1/2-full bag every 3 hrs when asleep...so that means i get up once to empty. and these are minibags
