There were some things I neglected to mention in my previous post. Such as the importance of doing your pelvic floor exercises correctly. If you cheat, then you reap no benefit and you might as well chew bubblegum and drink soda pop for all your pelvic floor is going to garner from this effort.
I found this link, but if you think you might have a problem, do seek help, because accidental wees ARE avoidable. You CAN do something about it. There IS someone who can help you. And unfortunately it will not get better without toning those muscles.
When I first started going to the physio I rated a measly 19 on the squeeze-o-meter. The target squeeze is 30. Is this TMI? Too bad, that's what carrying two babes in my belly did.
And as Jodi from Che & Fidel pointed out, mamas who have caesareans are not out of the woods either, those muscles stretch from carrying around those big babies in bellies.
So everyone, mama or not a mama, use it or lose it!
I've included a clip for your pelvic floor motivation. Here's something to inspire you.
And before I zoom off to bed, Mama Mogantosh has been celebrating with streamers, pinatas and margaritas the Week O'Mamas. Head on over there to read about all sorts of mamas, including me. But don't mistake my head as the pinata, ok?
