    Default How do you remember to do your pelvic floor exercises?

    I am 14 weeks and have barely done any pelvic floor exercises, only because I always forget!

    Does anyone have a good way of reminding you to do them throughout the day?

    During my 1st pregnancy I set up a reminder on my work computer for every 2 hours - then I'd do a few on way to loo, sitting at desk, making lunch etc. Plus I also did 2 pregnancy pilates classes per week so did about 200 in those.

    Maybe set it up on your phone as a reminder or computer?

    I remember my physio saying to do the exercise each time you saw a woman. It meant I was doing the exercise hundreds of times a day, and that is better than forgetting to do it at all. Marie.

    I put a note on the wall above ds1 change table. So every time I changed his nappy I would do a few. Now with ds2 I don't have a change table so I have a note on the fridge. Every time I go to the fridge I do a few
