I accidentally posted this before I intended to. A couple of you have left me comments on it, so I’m just going to go ahead and post it. Sounds like I may not be alone…
This is a little embarrassing. If you are not a woman, please navigate away. If you are not a mom, I highly advise clicking on to another blog. If you had a c-section, this probably doesn’t happen to you.
Hopefully, I narrowed the audience down there a little.
But I was noticing something Monday while I was doing double jump ropes with Jillian Michaels and her two (probably childless) “best girls,” as she calls them, on her 30-Day Shred video. I couldn’t help notice it since I had to sprint for the bathroom.
So, um, how do I say this? Maybe I didn’t do enough of those kegel exercises when I was pregnant. You know what I’m talking about.
Am I the only one who has…leakage?
I mean, how are these women bouncing up and down so much, and not having to take a potty break? I had to take three and one was a full-on emergency. Thank goodness I’m at home. What if I was in a class? I leave, then come back with different workout pants on? Yeah, not so cute.
Please don’t tell me I’m the only one!
lol, you are soooo not the only one! my kids got a trampoline last year and the first time i jumped on it i half peed myself! what the heck, i thought, i'm only 33 years old. i guess thats what having four kids does to ya:)
Totally not alone, but my problem is more with sneezing than running… :p My husband is very supportive and laughs at me.
Four?! I only have ONE and I do that!Oh and sneezing. Yeah, I have to strike a certain…pose. If I don't. Yikes.
Should I say at risk of getting hit? Five children (all a-la-natural births) and yeah, I'm a hayfever suffered, sometimes walking through the soap/cleaning aisle I definitely have to stop walking to have the sneeze attack – but running and jumping? I'm extremely lucky (blessed!) to not have any problems 🙂
3 kids, 3 c-sections, and it still happens to me!!! Sucks to be us. 😉
Right there with ya! After 2 hours of pushing, I'm just not the same. Joking about it helps … my daughter is out of diapers … but mommy is not! And probably won't ever be. That STINKS that those of you who had c-sections experience the same thing!!
happens. Trying to remember to do my k-exercises but my memory went somewhere with childbirth.I was reading somewhere that tampons help but that did not work for me. Actually to the contrary, made me want to go even more. Still, a lot of women on a running forum claimed it worked for them.
not alone 🙂 I gave birth to two gigantor babies and just recently I started noticing leakage when I did jumping exercises. I have to make sure to empty my bladder before every workout. I need to get better at my kegals because it gets worse as you age.
Hehehe was had this discussion at dinner…yes we are that COOL!! I have the same issue, Trampolines are the WORST…
Yup… I am in the same boat. I found out I wasn't alone when I was in my Stroller Strides class and I noticed several other moms not doing the jumping jacks or doing them with crossed legs. Jumping is particularly bad for me, but running does it too.Kegels don't work for me because I actually have nerve damage (thanks to 3 hrs of pushing my almost-10 lb son). I saw a Dr and am a candidate for the surgery. He prescribed physical therapy before the surgery, but I chickened out. I am not comfortable with someone else “working out” my hoo ha. Plus, I would have to have 4 weeks of no exercise after the surgery.
