I was so excited to be pregnant! I was a little older for my first baby which meant I had lots of time to plan for all the life style changes that would inevitably come with this precious new life growing in my belly. I thought I had studied and prepared for any situation that would arrive. I was wrong. I was completely unprepared for the frequent embarrassing potty runs and underwear changes that came soon after my son's arrival.
If you are want a laugh check out my video below.
At a minimum I would pee on myself from a simple sneeze or cough. Occasionally I could add another underwear change if I stood up quickly especially if I was holding my son. I started to become very sensitive to many commercials for "sexy" absorbent underwear. Not that these products do not serve a very important purpose. But in my opinion I was (and am) to young to be considering trading my victory secret for absorption protection.
I immediately started to work on my pelvic floor and abdominal strength. I research any exercises, relaxation techniques, and lifting style that would help restore the strength of my pelvic floor. My goal was to start feel young and sexy again. I am happy to say I can run, jump rope and even play at a trampoline park with my son without fear or worry of a sudden potty run.
