I do! I get a little less nervous about it as time goes on, but I can't seem to stop. Even when I have to go in the middle of the night, I still turn on the light so that I can check.

Anyone else?

I call myself a toilet paper analyzer..lol. I guess it is mostly because I have had a miscarriage in the past but I look every time I go to the bathroom and I will do it my entire pregnancy. Baby can be kicking up a storm and anal me will check the toilet paper.

With me having super irregular periods I had formed the habit of checking the toilet paper long before I ever became pregnant. As I don't get cramps or PMS the toilet paper check was often my only indicator that things were about to get messy.

Although atm my big thought on toilet paper is that toilet paper companies must love pregnant women cause I pee sooooo much

Me too! I wondered if I was the only one.
Sometimes if I have a cramp in the night, I get up to check even if I don't have to pee!

Yup! I can't help but check it. I'm not as worried as I used to be but I still have to check it.

I'm very guilty of doing this. I always have with all my pregnancies but I do it a lot more now since I had two miscarriages back to back.

This literally made me laugh out loud! I ALWAYS check my tissue after blowing my nose. I thought I might be the only weirdo who does this! I mean, what do I expect to be in there besides snot?

But yes, I check TP Every. Single. Time.

I do that too, to make sure it's not yellow cause that means infection :/ Sinus infections are the worst thankfully Ive only ever had one, but I remember the two weeks of pure miserable

So glad to see I'm not alone! Oh and on a side note, one time when I was a kid, I checked my tissue after blowing my nose and there was a live spider in it. I screamed!!! I'm hoping it was in the tissue when I pulled it out of the box, bc the alternative freaks me out even more. Just thinking about it again creeps me out.
