Pee? What the heck!?! Welcome to a whole new layer of motherhood.
I’d seen the commercials for Poise (did anyone see the Whoopi Goldberg campaign? Amazing) and thought wow, that must be a bummer. I’d heard stories from my other mom friends about the whole change in your body after a baby, but I have felt pretty darn good post baby J.
Eighteen months later, I definitely don’t have my ‘body’ back, and if we’re being real it wasn’t where it should have been for about 2 years prior to getting pregnant anyway. But nonetheless, everything has been in working order and back to normal.
I’m rounding out week 14 with the new baby on the way and this pregnancy is definitely different than the last. A few weeks ago, those momma stories started to get a little too close to my reality. After a family trip to the grocery store, J and C were wearing out some extra energy running around outside and I was starting the grocery unloading…and then. AAHHH-CHOO. Did I just…PEE?! Yes, I certainly did. Don’t worry it wasn’t crazy, but you know. Moments later I got a text from my neighbor to see how our weekend was going. Without hesitation I shot back: Just got back from the store, C&J are outside and I just sneezed and peed my pants…so pretty great. I laughed and moved on. At this point if you can’t laugh, what can you do?
Thankfully I am in good company with the other mom’s I’ve told my sneeze story to. It’s amazing what you’re not afraid to share after having a baby. What are some of your laughable moments post kiddos?
