Incontinence. According to www.webmd.com...
Stress incontinence may happen when there is an increase in abdominal pressure -- such as when you exercise, laugh, sneeze, or cough. Urine leaks due to weakened pelvic floor muscles and tissues.
Umm. Yeah. I have a problem.
I like to go to aerobics most mornings and I can handle most things but please, PLEASE do NOT ask me to do jumping jacks!!! I hate when we do jumping jacks. If I have had much to drink in the morning I have to do them like a 90 year old woman where I just step from side to side while moving my arms up and down. I look like a dork. If I don't do it like this... well yeah... you read the paragraph above about incontinence right?
And this week. It's really starting to bother me. I have been coughing A LOT. And sometimes... well sometimes after I cough I have to change my underwear.
Because of this I have been drinking less and therefore I am dehydrated. It's a lose/lose situation. But what is worse? Being a bit dehydrated or peeing my pants five times a day and there being nothing I can do about it?!!
You know... people didn't explain these kinds of things to me BEFORE I had babies. I think life is a bit unfair. Women get to experience this beautiful thing where they can grow a baby in their belly and give birth... BUT you just might end up peeing your pants for the rest of your life because of it. Not fair. I think anything that happens to a women as a result of childbirth should also somehow magically happen to the father as well.
Here's to another day of dehydration and hopefully not peeing my pants!
