All the people that have been warning me to do my kegels were right. I should have been doing them. I try, but I forget - I mean, it's not always the first thing on my mind.
Last night as I was lounging on the couch resting on my heating pad for my aching ribs I felt a sneeze coming on. I was more concerned with how much it was going to hurt the pulled muscle than anything else. Turns out I should have been clenching. One big sneeze and poof - I pretty much wet my pants. Excellent. Pregnancy has regressed me back to being a 3 year old.
So far I have been fine other times. When I run it feels like this little guy is doing a jig on my bladder, but I haven't had any accidents or anything. With all my violent coughing fits with this damn cold I'm surprised I haven't needed some Depends, but I've come through all right. Sneezing, on the other hand, appears to be a force of it's own.
With that in mind I will be doing some exercises at my desk today. At least my office mate is out so she won't notice if I am making weird faces while I clench.
Isn't pregnancy fun???
