Urinary incontinence

Though that may be the most personal title you have ever read in your life, I did say I was going to do my best to keep you up to date on my view of this pregnancy. So if you think it’s too much, just ignore this post and wait for my next one. :) Thanks!

So I laughed the other day and suddenly had to run to the nearest bathroom. Later on I sneezed, and again, had to run to the nearest bathroom for fear of having.. an accident.. to say the least.

Thankfully I had an email waiting for me at the end of the day from a baby website saying you can expect what is called urinary incontinence. It’s pretty much leaking of urine when you laugh, cough, or sneeze.

Gross, right? Tell me about it!

So I did a little research to see if there was anything I could do to do my best not to.. you know.. leak..

The number one thing I read is to do your Kegels. That is the most important thing they suggested. And one I’m going to consider! Other suggestions were watch your weight gain so there’s not too much weight on your bladder (ha!) or avoiding coffees, citrus, and tomatoes, etc. And last but not least.. pantiliners.

Here I am 13 weeks pregnant and I’m just now starting to have this.. problem, to say the least?

Can someone direct me to the Depends isle? Thanks. :)

Oh! Before I go, Paul thinks it’s hilarious. He just loves to scare the living daylights out of me thanks to my little ordeal. Isn’t that just darling?


  1. Kegels are very important. Do them during commercials... Sitting at a traffic light...You will be glad you did.

  2. I hated this problem. Sam was so mean and he would try to make me laugh. I wold get so mad at him. husbands can be so cruel.;o) gotta love em'You need them when that baby comes ;o)

  3. It doesn't necessarily get better as you age. :O Ha!
