I like to be prepared. I am a planner. One thing that I have learned, ever since I became pregnant with my first child was that no matter how planned or prepared you are, there will always be surprises and unexpected moments that occur.
One of the surprises that I had when I was pregnant with my son (my second child) was the pressure on my bladder that I had never experienced before, at least not to that extreme. There were some steps that I would take and I had to squeeze my insides with everything I had in order to attempt to not have any light bladder leakage (LBL). And sometimes, an unexpected cough, sneeze or move would happen and I wouldn’t be able to squeeze hard enough and there would be a surprise.
Have you ever experienced this? Do you know that feeling that I’m talking about?
If I were to pass along some advice to pregnant woman, it would be to always be prepared for these unexpected leaks. Just because you are pregnant and won’t have your period doesn’t mean that other unexpected leaks may not occur.
One way that you can be prepared is to carry some Poise Thin-Shape Pads with you. This way, when you have that unexpected cough, giggle, sneeze or movement that results in LBL, you are prepared for the occasion.
Life is full of surprises, but some of them, we can plan ahead so that we aren’t fully caught off guard.
If you experienced or are experiencing light bladder leakage, you are definitely NOT alone!
1 in 3 women experience LBL and over 50% use feminine care products (aka: period pads) to manage their LBL. There is a different alternative out there that offer superior absorption and more effective odour neutralization benefits.
Incontinence experienced during pregnancy is usually stress incontinence; which is the involuntary loss of urine caused by increased pressure on the bladder.
If you would like to be prepared, I encourage you to visit the Walmart coupon page for a $2.00 off coupon for Poise products.
