I shared a post that I thought was a bit humorous about being a mom back in March. I created some funny e-cards to go with the post and the e-cards have been repinned on Pinterest way more than I ever thought they would. You ladies found my card and post funny too apparently. I'm glad I'm not alone in the Mom's wet pants situation. Now if you are a female and reading this post I ask that you do kegels while you read my post. They supposedly can help you get better control of your bladder and can help you reduce your risk of getting caught in a pissy situation. Ok so get your kegels on ladies. Not sure what a kegel is? Google or Bing it. You can thank me later.
Do you deal with bladder leaks? I do so first of all I want you to know that you are not alone. I chose to educate myself and laugh it off, just not too hard unless I'm Poise protected. Armed with a Poise and good sense of humor I just let my problems go. Literally. I can't stop it from flowing most times. If you deal with bladder leakage do you use Poise pads? If so you can get the Poise product printable coupon to use at your local Walgreens through December. Protect your pants with a Poise and enjoy my little poem.
Mama's ode to Poise (Live, learn, laugh and let it flow):
I've done it sitting like a lotus
in dark pants hoping no one'd notice
I've done it running by a tree
of all the times to have to pee.
A simple cough could cause a flow
my bladder now says jumping is a big NO.
I've done it working up a sweat
never thinking my pants would get wet.
Having 9 pound babies has left its marks
on more than just my lady parts.
Trying not to pee with every sneeze
I'd cross my legs and give my knees a squeeze.
These days though, I can laugh and enjoy life with my boys
because bladder leaks are less of an embarrassment thanks to Poise.
Light bladder leaks (LBL) really is no laughing matter. Talk to your doctor if it's a concern you have. Poise pads aren't like the that time of the month pads. Poise pads are three times drier than the leading period-only liners. There are 5 different absorbency levels available, so you can find the perfect fit and protection level that fits your lifestyle. So even if you forgot to pack the extra pants for you in with the kiddos change of clothes in the diaper bag you can feel confident if you have Poise on hand or rather on your bottom. I still go for long runs. I haven't given up on my workouts. I still enjoy life. I don't let I hope my posts about light bladder leakage have helped you feel at least a little less embarrassed about LBL (aka getting older and your body changing after having a baby). You just have to live, learn, laugh and let it flow.
