hi L. no, you are not the only one. i have a vertical hood piercing, which i've had for a couple of years now (much to my husband's delight :o). this is my first pregnancy and i am also 35 weeks (today). i am going to leave my piercing in until delivery begins (i imagine you would just stretch too much to leave the jewellery in without tearing), but will put it back in place as soon as i can after my baby is born. i don't want to leave it too long in case the piercing closes up. after your first child, how long did you leave your jewellery out so that it was able to close over? i am more concerned about my nipple piercings and the effect they will have on b___stfeeding my baby. i checked with a GP and a b___stfeeding a__sociation before i had them pierced (three years ago) and both told me there should not be any problems. a body piercer however, told me there is more leaking of b___stmilk if you are pierced and it can get rather messy at times! i'm not sure who to believe, the doctors or the piercer. naturally, i will take out all jewellery to feed my child... i have had plastic retainers made up so i can just slide them in and out when i have finished feeding, rather than getting out the pliers and removing b___s and barbells, lol. i can just imagine the horrified looks from my in-laws... hee hee hee.

sar... i had my nippels peirced for about 10 months and when i was about 29 weeks (31 now) i had to take mine out. my b___bs hurt so bad and i was scared to b___stfeed with them. my doctor said they were fine unless they were bothering me just when you start to b___stfeed there is more risk for infection. what did your doctor say about yours? now my hole is grown up and it makes me sad all that pain i went through and they closed up in like 1 day. do you know if you can get them re peirced after you have had them done once already? welll good luck to "L" and SAR. thanks

hi michelle. i think you run the risk of infection when you start b___stfeeding if your piercing is quite new and hasn't healed properly. it can take a year or more for nipple piercings to heal i think. the longest i have taken out my jewellery for is about 9 days - i had a bit of a struggle putting the rings back in but the holes hadn't closed over completely. you can get them re-pierced at a later time if you decide to. i'm like you... i'd be sad to let them heal over and then have to get them pierced all over again.

In my first pregnancey i took my hood peircing out in early Febuary and i had my Daughter April 29.I took it out earlier than i wanted to because between the pregnancey and hormones and the peircing i was just way to sensitive down there to the point that i didtn like s_x anymore. But as soon as i took it out i was fine. By the time I had my Daughter it was closed up. Oh, I Think I should say, one of the reasons i didnt have an Epidural was because the nurses couldnt put a cathiter in me, for some reason they kept trying to put it in where the peircing had once been. I had no idea what they were doing so they just kept trying and trying until my daughters Father was like um, thats where her peircing used to be! By this time i just wanted medicine fast so i got the saddle block instead so that they wouldnt have to mess with trying to get a cathater in. I dont suggest the saddle block to anyone because my midwife lied to me. She promised i would have another when i needed it. I new i was going to be needing a new one at around 4 pm so at 3 i started feeling it fade away and i reminded them i would be needing more soon. They took my daughters father back in the hall way to talk to him and when he got back he took the clock off the wall and hid it so i couldnt see it. Soon i was feeling everything. I dont remember everything but i do remember screaming in pain and crying because they promised to give me medicine if i needed it and they decided not to. I am embara__sed to admit that i cried and screamed but i trusted these people and when a dr. or midwife tell you they are going to do something i beleave them, they shouldnt lie. My emotional state was horrible and i felt betrayed by my boyfriend, and the midwife and nurses. Had i known they werent going to give me more when i needed it i would have waited the extra time and gotton the Epidural! I remember my aunts crying because i was looking at them and i kept saying, they promised, they promised, i cant do this its too much for me. I got dilusional and started thinking that my mom was in the room and i started talking to her but she had died 11 months earlier and my aunts didnt no what to do. 5 hours later when my daughter was born i dont even remember her being born, i just remember looking down and seeing my little girl laying on my belly looking up at me. I know i got a little off subject here but i just wanted to share my experience. That is why this time i am getting an epidural

L. i had and epidural and it had fallen out so they gave me a saddle block, but i had my daughter like 2 minutes later. so i am trying to understand your story. so you don't need a catheter with a saddel block but you do with a epidural? i am so sorry to hear that your doctor betrayed you and you had such a hard time.

 

L - September 2

Michelle, I was told If i had an epidural i would have to have a cathater because with an epidural i wouldnt be able to get up and walk to the bathroom right away. They said with a saddle block i wouldnt need a cathater because i would be able to walk to the bathroom sooner.

L - OMG. i cannot believe what i have just read. that is the saddest, most disgraceful thing i think i have read on this forum. i don't think i would ever have forgiven the father of my child for siding with the midwives and hiding the clock. i'm so sorry that happened to you. and i'm sorry to hear that your mum was not with you either and never got to meet her wee grandaughter. i am in the same boat for that one... it's the only thing that's made me sad about having my first child. my mum would have been sooo excited and happy. well, good luck with this pregnancy L. after what you went through, i can't say i blame you for going straight for the epidural :o)

Does peircing "down there" really improve s_x? I am so curious about that... and did it hurt a lot??? I know this stuff is off topic, but I'm just a curious mom to be that has no one else to ask!

 

elaine - September 5

yes it hurts. but thats to be expected. but when i got my ears pierced it hurt for ages after. with 'down below' piercings u get the initial sharp pain then nothing... it heals so quick and ive never had pain apart from the split second... but im sure child birth will hurt much more lol

 

L - September 5

Same here when i got my hood peirced it was an intense feeling, i dont want to say pain because it wasnt really pain it was pressure. and as quickly as it had come it had gone away, 4 days later i was having s_x again. does it improve s_x? For me it did, i could give my self an orgasim just by moving my hips just the right way! lol it just drove my x nutts cuz if he couldnt do it for me i would move my hips to help out and he would always be like are you moving your hips? You better stop and let me do it. HEHE!
