Having kids really does a number on your body, doesn’t it? And it’s not just the things that we know about, like stretch marks and the endless bleeding and sleepless nights that are the worst offenders either.
Bladder control issues plague just about every woman I know who’s ever had a child, and it seems mom of 3 Kate Winslet is no exception. The actress opened up about her ‘leakage’ issues on The Graham Norton show, saying ‘“I can’t jump on trampolines anymore, I wet myself. It’s bloody awful, especially if you’re wearing a skirt.”
I can totally relate! I bought myself a mini trampoline for my home gym and the first time I used it I had to run to the bathroom. Let’s just say I was really happy I was at home when it happened!
Kate goes on to reveal what every other woman knows, that having kids completely changes your bladder control, saying “When you’ve had a few children you know, it’s just what happens,” she says. “It’s amazing, two sneezes, I’m fine. Three, it’s game over.”
Ha! It’s funny because it’s true, but it’s still nice to hear celebrities reveal that these things affect them too, and it’s not just us ordinary women that have to deal with it.
This is your daily reminder to get doing those Kegels ladies!
