  • That is completely normal during pregnancy. Your muscle tone is weakened during pregnancy, which makes it harder to control your urine and such. It will return to normal after you deliver.

  • lol I would not try to stop urinating in mid flow. I'm not sure if can only do kegals or a "back door" This is going to get a laugh and TMI, but I suppose you flex down there the same as if you're trying not to pass gas. I must say you are very talented if you can only flex either or at a time lol

  • Practice :) Keep trying. You will eventually find the muscles and be able to exercise them. If you COULDN'T do a kegel you wouldn't be able to hold your urine at all. So just keep practicing :) No, nothing is wrong with you, you just need practice!
