    don't suppose any tri 3 ladies have any tips on how to wipe after the toilet (specifically a number 2) effectively when you have a bump on your front?

    I am finding it a struggle and have considered buying some kandoo kiddy wipes for the bits I miss if you know what I mean?

    can't get my oh to help that's just abit too much lol

    Any tips or hints ? I did consider a shower but that's going to be annoying

    Why can't you reach round to the back? I'm confused... My bump is quite small though I guess!!

    Not having any problems so cant really help im afraid. But, I hate using the loo now. Sitting up perfectly straight to have a wee is more difficult than I ever imagined! X

    Glad I'm not the only one - I find it difficult because my bump is tender always has been so when I twist its really uncomfortable and bending over is not easy to do either

    it's tricky and causes me discomfort

    I understand your struggles pregnot!
    I always use toilet wet wipe types things now since ive been pregnant. So much easier and kinder to your bottom!!
    I reach to the back for as much as pos (minimum bending forward)
    Then bend forward for the last bit that I cant reach at the front all using wet wipes.
    Then dry with normal toliet tissue (quite an operation!!) x

    Not having problems with wiping, but I did notice an issue when doing my usual urine sample for the midwife. For the first time, my bump was too big for me to see and aim into the cup. I pretty much weed all over my hand and only managed to get the tiniest bit in the tube!

    Oh no! No-one likes weeing on their hand! You'll need to try a bigger cup then decant into the small tube.

    That was hubby's suggestion! His face was a picture when I handed over the sample.
