What people don’t tell you about having babies….

This post about what you should know about having babies is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign withPollinate Media Group™ and Poise, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #cleanandfreshswitch . Can you jump on a trampoline right now without any trouble?


When you are around your friends with babies and even older children, all you hear about is the long nights, the sweet smells and diaper blow outs of babies. If your friends are truthful they may tell you about their varicose veins and hemorrhoids they had during pregnancy and post pregnancy. What they don’t tell you about is the long term issues with your bladder. Is it because it does not kick in until after you have baby #2 or #3 or is it too embarrassing to talk about?

If you have had multiple children like myself and many of my friends, you have experienced light bladder leaks throughout your post baby years. Well 7 years since my last pregnancy and it is still happening. I remember going to one of my children’s gymnastics classes and the parents were invited onto the trampoline. OMG  I should have known to empty my bladder. Ooops. All the bouncing through my bladder into a sprinkler.

Every hear the expression I laughed so hard I peed in my pants. I bet that was started by a woman who had vaginal births.

Forget about heading to gym class without going to the restroom first. Once you hit the jump ropes you might as well have a puppy pad underneath you! Many a times I will see women race out of boot camp when we start with jumping jacks or jump rope. But why don’t we tell each other?

The worst is when you have a big sneeze. Instead of reaching for the tissue you need to reach for the underwear drawer. I guess I should have been more faithful doing my kegel exercises after givng birth. IS IT TOO LATE?


I was recently introduced to Poise products while browsing the aisles at Walgreens. Poise Products were created especially for women who deal with light bladder leaks (LBL). Admit it you have experienced it in your life. Poise pads are different from period pads, offering all-day protection, comfort, and a variety of absorbancy options. Poise allows women to go about their daily routine and activities without feeling worried or embarrassed about LBL.

So head to the gym class or trampoline and watch those mommies who don’t know about Poise watch in envy!!

  • Poise pads quickly locks away wetness and absorbs odor.
  • They feature a thin and flexible (Thin-Flex) design that moves with your body and offers comfortable protection against LBL.
  • Poise pads are three times drier than the leading period-only liners.
  • There are 5 different absorbencies available, so you can find the perfect fit and protection level that fits your lifestyle.

 Head to your local Walgreens to buy your package of Poise Products but first grab this $2.00 coupon  What do you wish you knew before you had kids??


  1. I wish I knew that I was not the only one.

  2. I never realized the numerous ways having a child affected ones body. I always thought it was just the baby weight, but the more I learn the more I realize that the weight maybe the least of the problems..I didn’t think of areas being torn, outstretched and muscles not re tightening. I owe my mom a hug

  3. I’ll definitely be passing this post along to a couple of my girlfriends who have babies due pretty soon.. Thanks!

  4. I do have this problem sometimes at my kick boxing class….ekkk.
