What Having Babies Did to My Body | #PoisewithSAM

I am writing about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PoisewithSAM

Becoming a mom has always been my dream. I can remember dreaming of my children at the ripe old age of 10.

I dreamed of the sweet new baby smell, the snuggles, the nursing, the baby wearing.

I dreamed of the joy seeing baby roll over, sit up, crawl and walk for the first time.

I dreamed of hearing Momma, Dadda and I love you for the first time

I thought everything about becoming a mother was exciting and fabulous.

Then I became a mom.

Yes, I enjoyed all of the beautiful things above.

I also experienced long nights awake with all four babies. Disgusting blow out diapers. Cracked nipples. Sick babies. Teething babies. Temper tantrums.

Oh… let’s not forget huge stretch marks, sagging skin, sagging boobs, and leaking boobs.

The one thing nobody ever warned me about was light bladder leakage.

Yep… I said it.

Carrying and delivering five full term 8+ pound babies has done a number on my body and my bladder.

I have yet to go a single day since delivering my second baby without protection because of light bladder leakage.

Laughing, waiting too long to go when I really need to, coughing and sneezing are all contributors to this affliction.

I used to think the LBL products would be bulky and uncomfortable to wear.

Thankfully the Poise Microliners look, fit, and feel like a panti-liner with more absorbency than a product meant for a light day during your cycle (like I used to use!).

 What did everyone warn YOU about when becoming a mom for the first time?


  1. Holly says

    I don’t think there are many moms who don’t have an issue with sneezing after having kids. I love that Poise has such a great product and I love the commercials with #SAMinpants

  2. Sneezing is my big issue now – I try really hard NOT to! I’ll go order my sample!

  3. Tiff says

    I have these pantyliners and love them! They are so thin you don’t realize they are there. And I totally understand on what kids do to your body. Totally worth it though.

  4. Lisa says

    I think all moms need these!

  5. The joys of being a mom, eh? But kiddos are worth it all 🙂

  6. dannyscotland says

    Yeah, it’s nice how they leave out all the “icky” stuff about having babies. Oh well, I have the same issue, but I’d do it all again in a microsecond.

  7. Lisa says

    Everyone warned me about stretch marks, but it never occurred to me that it might happen because of weight gain (foods), not necessarily from the baby. That said, I wish I would’ve been more diligent with the lotions to help prevent stretch marks – I only put them on my belly, and not anywhere else. I also wish I would’ve gone a little easier on the sweet tea addiction with my son ten years ago, because BOY HOWDY the stretch marks everywhere from gaining so much weight STINKS, man. :/

  8. Oy, the things I learned both during childbirth and after having kids. It was a HUGE learning curve, so many things I wasn’t expecting. So worth it, though. I have to say, I love how thin these are!

  9. It’s a brave woman to admit she pees her pants on her blog. It’s also a brave woman who admits to peeing her own pants while reading it. 🙂

  10. I *thought* I didn’t have this issue. Then allergy season hit. I can handle one or two sneezes, but the back-to-back ones get me every. damn. time. Gonna need to try out a sample of these to see if they can help me get through the pollen this year with my pants dry.

  11. The sleepless nights and the inability to sleep in! Now, I know that they were telling the truth.

  12. Three babies have definitely made sneezing a whole new experience for me lol

  13. Cara says

    I need to look for these! Are they bulky to wear?

  14. Funny they don’t tell you about all this fun stuff before you have kids…I guess our civilization might die off if they did LOL. It’s great to have products like these though to make it easier!

  15. I haven’t had issues with LBL but I think that’s just because I had c-sections with both boys. In any case I’m glad they have a product that’s comfortable since most women I know have this! {By the way, SUCH cute photos!}

  16. Oh this happens to us all…those 20 year olds that dont think they will ever be here…oh. They will.

  17. They’re so discreet that you can really wear them as a just in case every day and not have to think about it!

  18. This is a post something all mothers can relate to!! I have eyed these several times. Thanks for these reviews.

  19. Great post!! I’m going to have to check these out.

  20. Sarah L says

    I ordered the sample. Thanks for the link. Don’t need them as often as I used to.

  21. Sherrie C. says

    My boys were both so big as babies there was no way I wasn’t getting stretch marks and a sagging belly afterwards. My youngest alone weighed 11lbs 15oz! I also had bladder leakage while pregnant with both my boys because they were so large and afterwards too. It’s been over 20 years since I gave birth and I still have bladder issues occasionally.
