The idea is that when you lift, cough, sneeze to do a keegal to help strengthen your pelvic floor.
I thought they were a load of baloney when utd with ds, barely done them... Now this week im wishing I did
Every cough im running to the loo and since the flu im getting over flared my asthma up, its quite often.
I agree. While dtd it definately makes things more enjoyable. Especially the first time you do it I still remember the "holy crap what was that??" look on dfs face

@Nomie and @Calstar - the best way I've heard it described is when you're going pee, stop mid ******. The muscles that you use to stop the flow are your pelvic floor muscles - the ones that "Kegels" are meant to work out. (And the act of using your muscles to stop mid pee - that's a Kegel! Once you notice the action/motion you'll understand the lifting thing - I think)
They can become quite strained during childbirth (and maybe other reasons that I don't know about?) so it's good to keep them nice and strong, and doing Kegels helps that. Having strong pelvic floor muscles can also help incontinence issues.
Your partner should also be able to feel the benefit if you actually do them during bd (think of gripping something with your fist and then squeezing, that kind of thing). It's also said that doing them can increase the intensity/quality of org@sm, and I can confirm that - I'm pretty sure I do it automatically now during - can't stop myself!

The weight of pregnancy also can weaken the muscles - so even if you have a C-section your pelvic floor can be stuffed.
I have no problem locating mine but find it very difficult to do them without holding in other muscles (even if very slightly) and doing them without holding my breath. I really have to focus on doing them. I've thought about getting some kegel weights for down there

U can get a kegel weight which sits in there and does it for u. You slowly go up in heaviness as you get "fitter". I considered that myself cos I'm crap at doing any sort of extended exercise. I have never had kids, and yet I have to hold on tight when I sneeze lest my bladder get the best of me 8-|

I can hold my pee mid****** - so maybe I'm a Kegel expert without really knowing ;D

I better start with my exercises. I have wet my pants 4 times now since 18 weeks from sneezing. It just happened then. Lucky I am home !
