  • OUCH! Major Bladder Wall Flare after Superbowl Party

    After 3 pain free days I am now in absolute agony due to eating chips and bean dip at a Superbowl party yesterday. I stayed away from the salsa and hot wings. Bean dip usually doesn't bother me to much but this time it has sent my bladder into a raging fit. Almost 30 hours I still like I have a bladder full of hot acid and with my pregnancy related freuqency I'm peeing 3 to 4 times an hour every hour. I am soooooooo miserable. I hate having such a sensative bladder.

    Our Father, who art in heaven,
    Hallowed be thy Name.
    Thy kingdom come.
    Thy will be done,
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    As we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    But deliver us from evil.
    [For thine is the kingdom,
    and the power, and the glory,
    for ever and ever.]
    Amen.

          The acidy feeling is still really bad today. I used baking soda 3 times yesterday and it didn't help at all. Somtimes it works for me, somtimes it don't. My frequency has lessened a a bit today. I'm peeing about every 30-40minutes instead of every 15-20. The pain during urination is excruciating. I just wish I had a normal bladder. These flares are really getting be me down.
