Part of the reason I love being self-employed is that I can make as many trips to the washroom as necessary without raising eyebrows. I am the owner of the world’s teeniest, tiniest bladder and a washroom must always be close. While this has always been a problem for me, it only got worse after my children were born. There were a lot of things that got worse after my children arrived now that I think of it. Like the utter and complete loss of sleep for the last 13 years, the wrinkles that have formed from my best “don’t-even-think-about-it” scowl and the extra padding around my middle.
I’m not bitter about these things, they actually make me laugh, because I know I’m not alone. They are initiation rights into the sisterhood of the motherhood—a sorority that is all-inclusive and only asks that you have a sense of humour about the things your body will go through after child birth.
Like my friends that experience LBL (light bladder leakage). Yes, I have been with friends that have laughed so hard they peed their pants (and then laughed some more), sneezed a little too hard (and peed a little) and jumped on a trampoline and you guessed it, peed a little. In fact, one time a friend of mine laughed so hard, she peed causing another friend to laugh so hard, she peed. You know who invented the expression “I laughed so hard, I peed my pants”? Moms, that’s who.
Ain’t no shame sister, because once you’re in, you’ll quickly realize that 1 in 3 women have LBL. My friends have no problem talking about it either. In fact, what surprised me more than anything once I joined this group was just how common it is.
So how do my friends manage LBL? With poise of course, because we’re ladies here, and Poise Thin-Shape Pads help too. My savvy friends know that period pads don’t offer the same protection that Poise pads too, especially when it comes to odour and absorption. In fact, Poise is the #1 brand in the LBL category and can be found in the pharmacy section at Walmart.
Poise wants you to try for yourself to find out how comfortable their ThinPads can be during pregnancy, immediately following, or for whenever the need might arise. Don’t stop laughing now, because we have a lot of funny things to talk about in the coming years.
