I think what I have read that you need to do somewhere between 10 and 20 kegels 3 times each day. I'm trying to get that many in. I mainly do them when I am driving to and from work.

Does it say how long you need to hold your muscles during each one? I aim for about 3 seconds per squeeze. lol

I aim for 5 seconds but I think it said to try to work up to 10 seconds which is just impossible for me.

Yeah, 10 seconds is optimum. You can also do step ones, where you squeeze a little, then hold, then squeeze more, hold, squeeze more, hold, etc. Without releasing it until the very end

3-5 is gonna have to do. Seems to have worked for me so far.

Okay. Just did one for 10 seconds and it made me tired! HAHAHA!

I just tried one for ten ...lol I really need to keep up with these I am so bad... does doing kegels set off crazy strong braxton hicks for anyone else???? I don't know if this is a good thing because I am working my muscles. or if it is a bad thing and I am doing something wrong?

Sometimes doing them will cause a braxton hicks. Not sure why, that seems crazy. And I get way too tired trying to hold them for 10 seconds. It's not real easy to hold for 10 seconds. Maybe I'll try 7 seconds..lol.

Shelley you are just a wealth of knowledge!!
