There are times I wake up before my alarm clock starts blaring because I feel the urge to eliminate. It could either be to move my bowels or to urinate. Does this happen to you too?

Yes! Once I'm up I can't go back to sleep either so that means that sometimes my day starts really early too. You can bet anything that it will happen at the weekends when I could have stayed in bed for longer too

Nah, don't be. Every living thing on earth takes in something and throws it out down under. LOL Now, imagine Kristine Hermosa farting something that smells like spoiled sardines. LOL

Unholy? LOL, reminds me suddenly of my grandma who immediately touches her chest, makes the sign of the cross many times and says, "HESOS, HESOS!" (Jesus, Jesus) everytime she hears something awful or disturbing. *HESOS (Boholano/Bisaya accent)

My son always cryin' in the middle of the night coz he wanted to sleep in between of me and my Hubby. It's pretty annoying if you wanted to do some loving hahaha. Happy posting.

Hahaha, your kids should meet someday. They'd probably come up with a scheme to keep you from making love to each of your hubbies.

we call it "hydrolic pressure" around here - got the term from Robert Heinlein's book "A Door Into Summer."

Oh, LOL, haven't read the book so I'm wondering why it's called such. All I know is hydraulic pressure is the principle behind jacks, or brakes, or the mechanism by which you can decrease or increase the height of a computer chair. If my memory serves me right. :-D

well, the computer chair is an air pressured rather than fluid pressured object - hydro = water and pressure meaning that if you don't get to the bathroom NOW, you are going to spring a leak - Heinlien used it to talk about the cat in the story that would go to every door and window looking for the "door into summer" until the hydrolic pressure forced him out

Not very often. I usually take a leak before going to bed and don't drink a lot of water or eat so much food before sleeping so it helps prevent the urge. I know how hard it can be to decide whether you want to continue sleeping or go to the bathroom once the urge is there. These are the important questions in life lol :)

LOL, yeah, it's the million-dollar question of the lifetime for me sometimes. Ideally, we shouldn't be drinking or eating anything before bedtime, but sometimes I end up doing just the opposite.

I really hate waking up in the middle of the night or in the morning just to go to the bloody toilet. I don't have any choice but to go and do it but when my lazziness strikes i just ignore and hold it until in the morning and it gives me pain lolz. I just thankful that the toilet is just next to our bedroom so i can still close my eyes walkin' into it. Happy Posting.

It won't be such a big prob if the CR is like 5 steps away from your bed. :-D Our CR is in the ground floor so it's a long trip

hello theresaaiza Does the urge to eliminate often wake you up in the morning? nope, sure doesn't. my alarm clock usually wakes me up in the mornings like that before that i am awake for the day and need to go to the bathroom to pee. but on the weekends, i usually wake up to having to go pee like that, or to one of the boys watching television, or in the kitchen getting them some cereal or something to eat, or playing loudly. like it is time to get up now. lol but this morning, i did manage to sleep in until around eight thirty this morning without waking up due to the fact that both of my sons spend the night at two different places last night. lol one was at a friend's house, and the other one was at my mom's house. lol so i probably will not be that lucky in the morning as to be able to sleep in until almost eight thirty a.m. take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

You have responsibilities so it's required for you to wake up. As for me, my dad does most of the morning preparations especially breakfast. I do the share of chores at the end of the day when Im back from work.

That does happen at times but not often. It usually happen if I wasn't able to urinate and I drank a lot of water before bed for sure I have to wake up early in the morning to urinate but for bowels that rarely happen. Unless I got a bad stomach and it is really giving me troubles. LOL. Nice question. Have a great day and Happy Mylotting!!!

An upset stomach wakes me up at dawn. While a regular bowel wakes me up almost the same time everyday. :-D

Yes, I wake up at least once at dawn....my urge to urinate often wakes me up at early mornings, then I go back to sleep. It's annoying, but that's the call of nature which we could not simply ignore. But I'm thankful that I have a normal bladder control, otherwise.....

I agree that's why I keep a "chamber pot" in my room. It's like a smaller version of a "commode". In the Philippines, we call it "arinola" because in our house there's only one bathroom. It's a long trip from my room that's why I keep the chamber pot nearby.

Generally, it's the only thing that'll get me up in the morning. That and hunger pangs. Also if I try to lie in too long, the cats start to get impatient and I'm likely to open an eye to see at least one of them sitting there looking at me as if to say, "Come on you lazy slug, get up an feed us!"

Well, I don't really set any alarm clocks to wake me up. That is one good thing about me, I always wake up at 6am, whether I have work or not, I my eyes would always open at such time. Though there are occasions that I do wake up having the urge to urinate. Usually this occurs at around 2am. So the thing is, I do not drink much water before I sleep so I won't be awakened at an unholy hour.

When i was a kid, yes. But not anymore. Nothing can bother me in my sleep. Not even a bad stomach. I may feel a little bit of tingling in my stomach but it calms down as soon as i fall back to sleep. The same goes with the feeling of having to pee. It just don't bother me much. Not here in Manila. Lol! I freaking hate this place.

Yep, you don't have to say it, mod! I wouldn't want to sleep in Bohol and eliminate in Manila either! :-D
