My dirty little secret: Light Bladder Leakage

Fight Light Bladder Leakage #SamInMyPants

I’m going to cut to the chase here, if you had told me when I was 25 I’d be dealing with LBL aka light bladder leakage before 40 I’d probably have rolled my eyes at you. Now I refer to this pesky little issue as “seriously I need to go change my unmentionables again?!?” otherwise known as peed my pants. I’d rather have skipped this little rite of passage to motherhood.

“Do Kegels” they told me when I was pregnant with my oldest son.. It will strengthen your pelvic floor helping you not only with delivery but also with not peeing when you sneeze. I believed them.

LIES they told me. LIES.

Well, it’s definitely sneezing but not JUST sneezing. It’s stepping off of a curb, or a step. It’s tripping over the cat (so he’s not only trying to kill me, but make sure I need to change my underwear at least 3 times a day) Don’t get me started on carrying groceries, kids dragging you around or a simple cough. Hate to tell you ladies, light bladder leakage is going to happen. No amount of tightening those muscles will save you or those cute little thongs.

Combating light bladder leakage to do Yoga #SAMInMyPants

My beautiful children? I love them dearly but they destroyed my bits. Did you know they have physical therapy for your bits to help with light bladder leakage? They do. True story. It kinda helps.

But you know what does help? A trusty Poise Microliner. Granted, the days of those thongs are gone, but with a liner I can usually step off a curb without needing a wardrobe change. It’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. At least I’m not in granny panties!

Forget telling the kids to go potty before we go somewhere. I need to make sure I go potty too. Definitely go before exercising – I learned the hard way. Don’t even think about leaving the house without your Poise Microliner. You’ll thank me later. You can even get a free sample of Poise by visiting their website.

Now that I have protection I’m breaking out the yoga mat. Wish me luck!

  1. When we were all busy planning our families…way back when…who knew this was going to be an issue? Not this girl! And wait, therapy for your bits? Is that really a thing?

  2. I can really relate to that part about making sure to go “Potty” before I leave. I have had to cut neighborhood walks short, the Poise product would save the day.

  3. I always say, “If I had known then what I know now it’d be a whole different ball game!” It’s crazy how all the joy our children bring seem to still outweigh all they put our bodies through. So glad you’re laughing about it!

  4. Thank goodness kids are a blessing, even with the woes the body goes through! Do those Kegels 🙂 Good luck with that yoga mat!

  5. Sneezing and coughing can be dangerous once you’re past 40! I’m so glad Poise has a solution!

  6. Okay… I’m glad you cleared that up. You see, I was told about the kegal thing too but never did them and I have the lbl issue. So, glad to know it would’ve been a waste of my time. 😉
