  • Yeah, go get some Poise pads (they're made for urination problems) or even get some Depends. You might have this "problem" for quite a while after you have the baby also!

  • is this your first pregnancy? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this might continue after delivery too.
    it did after my first delivery for a few months. then after my 2nd, the doc wanted me on meds to fix, but couldnt take while nursing. he said always try meds before surgery. well I nursed for 16 months. it didnt stop for 9 months! well here I am prego and it started months ago. thankfully, I'll have surgery after delivery before my bladder is damaged forever.
    try pads. they are uncomfortable. I hear ya. if Im home, I just change my clothes over and over. good luck with the new baby!

  • It's pretty common. Just wear a pad or something and do kegals to help strengthen your pelvic muscles.
    My bladder was probably damaged by my c-section because no amount of kegals seems to help and I didn't really have this problem while pregnant.
