on what we're talking about.

I've decided that the real curse of having 9 and 10 pound babies is that I can't workout without peeing myself.

Last night, our Crossfit workout was double unders (jumping rope where the rope goes around twice between jumps) and sit-ups.  50-40-30-20-10

I did the first 50 jumps with no problem, then painstakingly got through my 50 sit-ups.  Then the 40 round started and 10 jumps into it, I peed.  Just a little but had to stop, go drain my bladder again, changed my panties and put on a liner.

Came back and finished the rest of the workout.

Doctor says my bladder has definitely dropped but apparently not enough for them to perform any kind of surgery on it unless I request it.

I'm starting to wonder if that is an option for me.

A few weeks ago, I walked up to the neighbors to get my boys home for dinner and decided to race them home.  We're talking three houses down at an all out sprint.  I won... but peed myself the whole way home.



  1. I feel for you! I have also had difficulty exercising without peeing for a very long time. Unfortunately, my troubles pre-dated babies and babies just made it worse. Hugs.

  2. If it makes you feel better, women don't even have to reproduce for this to happen. Something about hormones, muscle tone, and (woohoo) as you get older, it does NOT get better.

    Doesn't that just (sorry, but I must) PISS YOU OFF??

  3. Oh geez - I'm laughing but silently nodding because I'm dealing with the same... and my childless friends wonder why I don't jog....

  4. I can certainly relate. The liner has been my friend. I will say though after a number of months of exercise, it doesn't happen as much. I must have toned some muscles I am not always aware of.

  5. Ahhh. So there's hope, Dawn. Because I have Kegeled (sp) myself to death. lol

  6. Trampolines are out, too, I'm afraid.

  7. Jenni - been there, peed there. lol.


How sweet of you to drop by.
