  • Both. I never got sick before dd and now i get a cold once a year...maybe twice. I had strep over Christmas too! As far as pee goes I do let a drop out sometimes when I sneeze or cough too hard. Never did this while pregnant but did after she was born lol

  • i think its probably normal, i've never dont it and i have 3 kids.
    It wouldnt hurt to mention it next time you go to see your Dr. but i dont think it would be anything to worry about and will probably get better with time.

  • I feel like I get sick much more now that I'm a mom, on the other hands I've never peed my pants when coughing or sneezing. I remember with my first dd, I had a catheter b.c of the epi. and that messed with things for a short bit. But now after 3 kiddos I'm all good :)

  • I have yet to have kids and I pee myself if I cough or sneeze to hard or jump on a trampoline. I've been like that since I was 15ish.... My Dr's throughout the years have never seemed concerned.

  • Yup and there is a surgery called a bladder sling that helps tons.

  • I practally wear my bladder on the outside of my body after 5 kids. I sneeze, laugh, roll over in bed...and I leak. Surgery scheduled to repair damage soon.
