Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me?: Incontinence

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me?: Incontinence

Incontinence – I never knew what the word meant until I was eight months pregnant. I sneezed while walking down the block and was shocked by the bodily fluid that came from between my legs — yikes!

Luckily, I was wearing a skirt so it wasn’t obvious. I immediately rushed to my car (which wasn’t an easy task) and drove home.

Ladies, incontinence doesn't just stop once you have your baby. A friend of mine went for a run two weeks after giving birth and nearly emptied her bladder. She's still thankful that her black jogging pants masked it.

Have no fear — you won't be peeing on yourself forever. After two months, I could sneeze, laugh, cough, and jog all at once without worrying.

Did you ever have this problem?
