Sorry in advance if this is TMI.


I had bladder problems before this pregnancy.

Hi,
I had a minor problem with this during my last pregnancy. I think you should mention it to your OB or even regular doctor. They should have some suggestions. I would think they would have you at least do some pelvic excercises (kegels). I might also suggest you try pads meant for this specific problem (dont know which u r using) such as depends pads, instead of menstrual pads.
Hope u find some relief soon.

ITA that you should buy incontinence pads if you are using regular feminine pads instead.

Hi,
I saw you on the VBAC and C/S boards.
Wow, you're lucky to have your mom. She must have a good sense of smell. Maybe better than most? Maybe others don't detect as much as she does!

Since this is post sort of old, how's it going? Did you come up with a workable solution? Does it pass the mom sniff test? Are there any allergy medications you can take?
I don't much like the idea of hiding the smell with strong perfume. I am allergic to many perfumes, and I hate strong perfume. But that's me!

I just really want to emphasize the Kegels. They are supposed to help with labor and delivery, too.

I used the incontinence pads until I got over my cough.
