So I was listening to a pregnancy podcast and these preggos were talking about the pee pee hula dance they do before the get off the potty. I had NEVER heard of this.

Of course, this is not its official name...I don't think it even has one, but after they "think" they are done going pee pee, they kinda circle their hips and torso (think hula dance) to make sure their bladders are completely empty. I laughed out loud. What?? I mean, seriously, does this work??

So the next time I went to the bathroom I did the pee pee hula. OMG! It worked. I thought (and felt) like I was all done, but there was some still stuck in my bladder. These girls swear it helps them not to have to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes or so b/c you completely empty your bladder out each time. Now, I have done it 3 more times and gotten nothing....but isn't that the strangest???

Never heard of it. I count to ten after I think I'm done to see if I still have to go and then lift off the seat about 6 inches. Pre-baby I could just lean forward to fully empty but with the weight of the baby I need to actually start to stand up a bit. I learned all the tricks after running to the bathroom all the time with my first. So pregnancy #2 and this one have been just a few more trips a day than non-pregnant.
If I tried the hula trick I'd probably collapse off the side of the potty from sciatic nerve pain.

I will try it LOL This is the first pregnancy I have had frustrations with peeing. After I pee, I think I'm done, then when I get up and wipe, I leak more, it pi$$es me off. So annoying. Hula dance here I come!

I FEEL your pain. I have never been more pi$$ed off when going to the bathroom. Or trickling when I sneezing. Now that NEVER happened with DS. I will be hula-ing with you each time from now on.

It's so nice to know I'm not alone in all these peeing issues. I'll be so glad when I don't have to think about potty gyrations.

Definitely worth a try! I also read that after you get done peeing, you should wait a few seconds and then lean forward to make sure there's nothing left in your bladder. I was doing that for a while and it worked. Now, I play the "is my bladder full or is she sitting on it" game -- always super fun!

Happened to me today. Went to KFC for lunch..YUM

Went to the loo on the way in, on the way out said oh get you in the car I need to wee again... and on the way back to the car... I needed to wee...AGAIN!!

I find myself setting up camp before bed at night, sitting on the loo for a good 15 mins. I'm amazed that every 3-4 mins or so, a little more pee comes. I can't wait to have my body back

I actually do that but I've never heard that term

When I pee on the toilet, I will wiggle and lean forwards and lean backwards and get the last remnants out. DH thinks I"m crazy and gives me looks whenever he catches me do that.
