I soooo hear all of you! AND can I just say that I suck at doing kegels? I KNOW that I need to do them, but I only think of it if... ahem... there is leakage.

Best of luck!

Someone's siggy around here says "Okay everyone, let's Kegel" and it reminds me to do a couple. I don't see her around often enough, though

I think the only reason I remember to do the kegels - is because I am taking a Bradley class...soon that will end and I will have to really keep reminding myself.

But I was having a problem with "leaking" and then I did the everyday kegels and it has pretty much gone away.

I am so sick of this --- I have had a cough for a few weeks and ...

I guess it will get worse before it gets better as baby drops on bladder.

DITTO!!!!

Pantyliners gave me yeast infections so I just fold up some TP and that usually takes care of it! (Unless it's a massive sneeze/coughing fit then I'm done for! )

It almost seems like it is psychological for me. In NEVER happens at work or anyplace else. But when I get home from work, I can barely get into the house and to the bathroom ontime! Even when I pee before leaving work! It was just like that with my last pg, too.

I err bought some light bladder protection pantiliners and I must say there is a difference between them and regular old pantiliners.
They asborb more quickly so when I am (trapped) laying down with my son at night to put him to sleep I don't end up soaking his bed when I have a coughing fit.

Given what a mess I was right after DD's birth, it's a miracle I can keep myself dry most of the time now. Two things really push the limits, though: sneezing and a solid head butt from the baby.

My DH asked where his PJ bottoms were the other night ~ I told them I had been wearing them and peed myself so they were in the laundry!

Things you never thought you'd say!
