Bladder Leakage After Babies – What??!!! + GIVEAWAY
I remember all 3 of my pregnancies clearly. I loved being pregnant. In fact, there were points of the pregnancy where I felt better being pregnant than I did not pregnant. I knew things would change after having babies, but I honestly didn’t have any clue what all would change.
Here are 4 changes I noticed after my pregnancies:
Change #1 – Stretchmarks. Oh yes – after my third pregnancy, I definitely noticed the stretchmarks. I would never feel comfortable wearing a bikini again. Thank heavens for Tankinis! My friend refers to them as battle scars that show we had babies. Never really looked at it that way before!
Change #2 – Hemorrhoids. Yep, I just went there. Hey, it’s a fact of life. With all the pressure of the baby during pregnancy, you are bound to end up with one of these. If you haven’t had babies, you just may be one of the lucky few who end up without them. But if you do end up with them, don’t fret because there are effective internal hemorrhoid treatment options.
Change #3 – Baby fat that doesn’t go away. After my first pregnancy, I was shocked by how quickly my weight gain went away. I mean, a few days after having Brian, you could barely tell. It was awesome! It wasn’t the same way with Dallen and Sam though. Oh well, baby fat happens and sometimes doesn’t go away.
Change #4 – Bladder leakage. Yep! That’s right people! Sometimes if I laugh too hard or cough too much or even sneeze with a full bladder, I pee a little. It doesn’t happen all the time, but does happens sometimes, which is more often than I like. I remember watching a well-known actress talk about bladder leakage in a video and laughing at the things she said. I wasn’t laughing at her as in making fun of her, but was laughing with her because I totally knew what she was talking about was true! Bladder leakage happens ladies!
