Parenthood leads to a lot of changes. Some that we anticipate, and a lot that we do not. Many of the surprises are wonderful aspects of life with children, and others... well... aren't. Light bladder leakage being a very common (and very overlooked) problem experienced by expectant and postpartum mothers.
I remember the first time I experienced light bladder leakage. I was halfway through my pregnancy with my son, now 3-years-old, and I went from being fine to suddenly having the urge to pee right away. I sprinted to the bathroom as fast as could possibly be expected of someone who was 5 months pregnant, but it didn't matter. I didn't make it quite fast enough to avoid a little leakage. I was so embarrassed, and I had hoped it was a one-time thing. Unluckily for me, that wasn't the case. The hormonal changes of pregnancy had given me the lovely blessing of light leakage. Yay, lucky me! It was both embarrassing and extremely frustrating. Something I took for granted developed into a chore I constantly had to think about. Uh-oh, am I going to sneeze? When did I last pee? If I had a little leakage today, would it show through my clothes? I felt like a teenager getting used to my monthly cycle all over again, only it somehow felt worse! I was even modifying my behavior and habits to avoid situations that may lead to leakage and end up embarrassing me. In my case, I no longer had an issue with light bladder leakage once I had my son. My hormones settled down and everything went back to normal. Okay, almost back to normal. What my midwife refers to "baby belly jelly" never quite went away, and I've come to accept that it probably won't ever. I can laugh about it now as another fun aspect of pregnancy, but light bladder leakage isn't a walk in the park, and it doesn't always go away. Don't let LBL run your life!
