  • not sure what keagles is but yes, it's normal to pee sometimes when you sneeze, I've done, I even peed a little bit when I threw up today lol. I felt really pregnant when I peed a little when I sneezed lol.

  • You can feel your kegal muscles when you pee and then stop mid stream. The muscles you use to do that are the ones you want to tighten. You can start by stopping you pee midstream. Once you have figured out which muscles you are using, start tightening them when you are not peeing. You can do it like 10 times for a count of 10 and work up to holding it longer. Kegals are very good for you whether you are pregnant or not, but it is key to getting things feeling tight again down there after child birth. You can do them any your car, at your desk, sitting on the couch. The great thing is, no one will ever know what you are doing.
