    Is everyone doing these religiously?

    I started out weeks ago doing them all the time then I kinda... forgot :blush:

    I have a weak bladder as it is, so i'm now paranoid i'm going to be so much worse after labour.

    Really must keep doing them.

    No.... :blush: I do them at aquanatal and occasionally when I think about it, like last night in bed. But they make the baby jiggle! I've not had any leaking so touch wood I'm already toned in the pelvic region!

    Yeah babe...keep up the good work.

    Especially if you already have a weak bladder, better to prevent now than try to treat afterwards:blush:

    That's what I was thinking. I don't want to be like an old woman, but i'm so forgetful.

    I do these everyday. I was advised to do them at the same time so you remember i.e when you are brushing your teeth.

    I was shown a picture of a prolapse at my antinatal a few weeks ago and oh.my.god!!!! That was enough to make me do them daily!

    My MW told me I should be doing them for a couple of minutes 2-3 times a day. She asked me at my 28wk appt if i'd started so I said sort of (after reading about them on here) and that's when she told me I should keep doing them more often.

    I was going to google but I don't think I dare!

    That's a good idea about doing them at a certain time of day along with your daily routine. Might try that - it might help me remember.

    i'm trying to do them- but the most important time is after the birth. before the birth it can help with the birthing process, giving you more strength and control- but the muscle fibres get damaged so much during the birth that you have to start back from square one postnatally.
    It would def help you before birth with weak bladder problems, but you'll have to increase the amount and the intensity afterwards.

    So I will be doing them all the time afterwards-

    A bit of advice from one whose pelvic floor has not been seen since the birth of my second child :blush: Do them!!!!!!
    Before and after birth.
    I am now paying the price, pregnant with my third and at the moment I have a bad cough. So lets just say everytime I cough I pee :blush:
    I m only 32 and feel like an old lady who now has to wear pads to prevent embarrassment when out in public.
    It may seem like the Mw are getting on at you but believe me its for good reason.
