This post brought to you by Poise at Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.
I've been sharing a lot of TMI blog posts recently like my bathroom routine or all the things you need for postpartum recovery. In that post I mentioned Poise.
See, pregnancy does a number on your bladder. For about 9 months your little one uses it as a trampoline.
I remember the first time Mason used my bladder as a trampoline to the point where I felt it. I was laying in bed in a hotel room in upstate NY during my sister's cheerleading competition when BOUNCE and I peed a little. Yes. I peed a little. So I jumped up ran to the bathroom and emptied my bladder the rest of the way to ensure that I didn't compeltely pee myself with the next jump.
After pregnancy I knew that this would still be an issue thanks to the other women I know who have had babies. And contrary to popular belief it's not delivery that makes your bladder weak it's the pregnancy itself so even if you have c-sections you can still experience this issue.
3 Reasons You May Need Poise
1. You're Exercising. So there you are trying to get rid of the baby weight. And the exercise program you're following wants you to do jumping jacks. Jumping Jacks? You can do that! You've been doing it since elementary school. So JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! PEEEEEE. OMG you peed your yourself. Yup. That just happened.
2. You're Watching Something Funny. It's been so long since you've watched something funny and it's hilarious, you can't control the laughter, you're losing control, of your bladder. Yup. That just happened.
3. You're sick. Remember the good ole days when you were sick and your Mom used to take care of you and you got to stay home from school/work and just laze around? Well those days are gone. Now when you're sick you either still have to work or you're still taking care of kids. Sometimes they're even sick too. And to add insult to injury when you have a coughing fit and OMG you peed yourself. Yup. That just happened.
Luckily there are some ways that you can help this situation. My personal fave is crossing my legs, squeezing REALLY tight and praying I don't pee.
You can also do kegels. Those really help.
And until the kegels work you have Poise. They have a full range of products to suit your specific needs.
The new Poise Microliner is super thin (I would know, I've tried it). And has SAM technology aka Super Absorbant Material. It's seriously as thin as a piece of paper1
You can get Poise at Walmart which is where I got mine (keep reading for a coupon).
I always use Poise right before I'm about to work out. It's not glamrous but when is being a Mom glamrous? Unless you're Gisele of course. The new Microliner is really MICRO! I can barely feel it yet it makes me feel confidant as I do my Bikini Body Mommy workout!
I'm not worried as I do my jumping jacks or jump rope because I know that I'm protected. You can feel protected too!
