Are you doing kegels? How often are you doing them?

Since this is my third baby I am trying to do them everyday and I try to do them at least twice a day. That is when I can remember.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

no kegels here...... interestingly enough alot of ppl are now saying kegels dont even help that much and can be detrimental if done wrong and that squats are better for you and your pelvic floor strenngth. i dont do squats eaither though lol Im to lazy.

also apprantly my better half firmly beleives my insides will shoot out of me at a high velocity if i squat while pregnant. Idk where he got it from but I sit on my heels alot with my knees up its really cofmortable to me which apprently is also "unnatural" an anytime im pegnant he yells at me if he sees me doing it.

Try to have something to remind you to do them. When the kids go to bed I do them at every add break. I do 10 each time. Another thing a friend did, she drinks lots of herbal tea so each time she put the kettle on.

I do them when I remember. Which is sporadic.

I've been in such the habit of doing them over the years that it's second nature. With so many kids its something I don't play around with. I don't need my insides to start fallung out lol.

I do them when I can remember, but I can never remember.

Squats are way more beneficial than kegel exercises.

Here's a link if anyone is interested.

Mama Sweat: Pelvic Floor Party: Kegels are NOT invited.

There's plenty more if you google!

They are so hard to remember to do...
Even when my friend (mother of three) told me this hint...

When you go to the bathroom (which everyone does) go....
Pee...hold...pee...hold....pee....hold...pee....ho ld...pee... hold... pee...

so how many times you go to the bathroom... that is when you did your kegels...
