    Default Mrs wee wee pants

    So I have three kids 7,5 and 4 . The first birth was horrific with vacuum and forceps and bad tearing , then having two other kids close together I'm a bit of a wee wee pants now . I find about a week before my period I can't even bend over without doing a wee . I wear liners a lot , well most of the time . If I sneeze it can be a change the trousers job and forget running or trampolining !

    I'm only 40 and I know this is not entirely normal but having a traumatic birth/births has left me a bit worried about Drs . I should go really but I was hoping someone could tell me what kinds of things they have done to get the their pelvic floor back in shape?


    I don't feel sick and I don't have back pain but I am over weight for my height so I guess I should address that . Is it normal to pee your pants after 3 kids?

    If you're hesitant about doctors, you could try a women's physio first and see if it's something they're able to help with.

    I've had two kids, both vacuum delivery. The first time I had a second degree tear and the second time just a graze, so not as traumatic as your experience. I occasionally have a tiny bit of "oops!" if I sneeze with a full bladder, but otherwise it's all fine now. I didn't really do any pelvic floor exercises pre- or post-birth (despite being told to) but was lucky that it all came back together okay after a few weeks.

    I think if it's affecting your life (which it sounds like it is) it's definitely worth seeing someone to find out what your treatment options are.

    Good luck!

    I second a women's physio if you're wary of a Dr. I've been seeing one recently for pelvic instability after having DS3 at 43.

    I don't have your issues but you wouldn't catch me on a trampoline with a full bladder that's for sure.

    Many women will suffer some degree of urinary incontinence after having babies, but yours sounds extreme. Definitely get yourself to a women's health/incontinence physio first up and go from there. Make sure they are specialists in pelvic floor dysfunction - you want to make sure they know what they're doing. Being overweight will also add to the problem, so that could be something else you address also. Start with light exercise though until your pelvic floor improves, otherwise you'll just make the problem worse. Something like swimming is low impact and really good as you get cardio plus muscle toning all in one. It may be that something more serious is going on i.e. Prolapsed bladder etc which is affecting the sphincter at the base of the bladder being able to work properly, so don't discount a doctor as something you might need to do, but start small. Women's physio first and go from there. Good luck!
