This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Poise, but all my opinions are my own.
Today we are going to talk about something personal, it's LBL. No this is not a fancy text abbreviation thought up by some snarky teenager or some fabulous hashtag that is going to get you noticed! But before I tell you what LBL is I am going to tell you a very personal story!
When I was pregnant with my first child I got up on Thanksgiving morning to go empty my bladder, I did then flushed and walked away… and it happened…the warm gush. I stood perplexed and my husband yelled out, “Are You OK?” I said, “Well either I peed on myself or my water broke” Here’s the thing, I was really trying to figure it out in my head because I could not wrap my head around the fact I was about to give birth! Laughing my husband says, “Well since you just peed and flushed the toilet I’m guessing your water broke!” Smartypants!
So we brought home this bundle of joy! He was so sweet and cuddly and then it happened..you know that moment when you sneeze and it’s all over…your bladder control that is. Yes, you just sneezed and peed on yourself! It reminds me of the days of an unexpected period while wearing white pants! It is beyond embarrassing so I ,of course, mention it to my Dr. and he says, “Oh yea that is normal you just need to do a bunch of Kegels every day.” Dude, with my life I don’t have time to remember and exercise the outside of my body much less my hoo-ha! So l I had to find a solution! My second child was 10 pounds, that means your bladder get’s pushed to places unknown. I was almost 40 when I had Matthew, so between babies and age, well…sneezing happens. Then I found myself trying quickly cross my legs and squeezing them together when ever I felt a sneeze or cough coming on hoping to stave off this wonderful new part of womanhood.
Having 2 boys I am all over the place. Soccer, basketball, volunteering at the school, wrestling around and cleaning house. Poise lets me do all these things without having to worry, they stay where they are supposed to be because they are thin and flexible and move with your body. That means they don’t get all twisted in your hooha, requiring you to walk around squirming and trying not to pull at your underwear to get it back in place like some other brands.
