Yearning for Younger Years

Bladder where art thou?  (Just an FYI - if you don't like bladder talk - X out of this screen immediately!)

Why can I not sneeze without holding my crotch and crossing my legs at the same time?  (Mind you I'm one of those at least 3 sneezes in a row kind of girls!)

Why can I no longer jump for fear of wetting myself?  I'd love to see a trampoline again, but what would happen?

Why do I have to worry about laughing too hard with my friends if I need to pee?

Why must my beautiful, precious babies have ruined my bladder for life?

I was 23 when it struck.  I brought this gorgeous 7 pound 12 ouncer home with me and said goodbye to my bladder.  She slightly ruined my ability to hold my urine.

But I believe it was this hunky chunk is the one that really did it to me.

All 8 pounds 11 ounces of sweet Ma obsessed son-shine :)

So I ponder, if I had a 3rd child (which gauging the size of my kids and my personal birth weight of 9 pounds 15 ounces - I really may deliver quite the 9+ pound chunk) would I be forced to wear a Poise pad daily?


  1. Annie, Annie...where are you? You haven't visited in days and I miss your sunshine! Can you imagine what Octomom's bladder must be like or Kate Gosselin for that matter. I wonder if she sprinkles while she's dancing....LOL!

    P.S. Still waiting for your mom's blog to appear:)

  2. I hear you! Jumping jacks, coughing, laughing, sneezing... It's crazy

  3. Oh my goodness!!! Ok first no more posting adorable photos of babies!! This makes me ache for another one. Second kegel exercises!! It's the only way I was able to "stop grabbing my crotch" while sneezing! ;) You are to funny!

  4. LOL!!! Well, I had #3 almost 4 years ago, and lemme tell ya, I have NO BLADDER FUNCTION!! Honestly, she killed it. I can't fart without peeing my pants these days. Sad, so sad...


  5. I have scheduled the surgery twice to fix this and twice cancelled- because you can't lift anything for 6 weeks- and that's my life- dragging stuff around....I can so relate.

  6. Hey honey, I am WAY older than you and have had 3 kids and this wasn't/isn't a problem. Talk with your doctor because this isn't something you should live with.
    Kegel exercises do help, I did them religiously. I am crossing my fingers for you and some of the other ladies here.Good luck!

  7. I just turned 45 yesterday and I have been dealing with this same problems since my first daughter born in 1988. I have finally made arragements to have this problem taken care of surgically. The surgery is a same day release deal and seems very easy and effective. Check it out with your doctor, I hear you though, nothing is the worst than having wet drawers!



Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
