Our discussion the other day on facebook has gotten me thinking about Kegels. How often are you guys doing your Kegels? How many do you do at a time? Do you find that you sometimes forget to do your kegels?

I'm doing them right now.

I usually do some daily. Just here and there when I think about it.

You should post periodic facebook posts saying "TIME FOR KEGELS!" several times a day. Then this DDC will have the strongest postpartum pelvic floors ever seen. And we can go to other Playrooms and make fun of them peeing themselves and their tampons falling out.

I'm pretty sure our ddc talks about vagina more than any board on JM.

I'm kinda proud

Yep if it has to do with your vagina, I think we have talked about it.

I definitely don't do them as much as I should be! I'll be regretting it later when I constantly pee myself...

I HATE doing them. But I do a couple every once in awhile. My muscles are so weak, I can barely hold them.

I do them a lot - I've only leaked a handful of times while pregnant and that was only with Violet when I had bronchitis and couldn't stop coughing. My NP actually said my pelvic floor is quite strong. She left an u/s wand in me at around 6 weeks pregnant because she needed to grab something and was like "hold it in!" for a few minutes! I was able to keep it in with my vag muscles, so I guess that's good.

A strong pelvic floor helps you push the baby out efficiently too, people! Do your Kegels!!

I like how they feel. lol I'm a freak, I guess.

Totally TMI, but I do them during sex DH thinks it's hilarious to feel the "squeeze" around him.

I admit... I HATE how kegels feel. It gives me a creepy crawly feeling. So I never do them. (And I also pee when I sneeze. So.)

I did read that squats were actually better for keeping everything in place and tight than kegels. So maybe I should do squats. (Oh wait... I do... every day.... picking up my daughter and her many things she throws on the floor!)
