I think that it's partly pelvic floor and partly that my gut makes more wind. You get windier during pregnancy because the hormones make your bowels work more slowly, IIRC, and I think that mine haven't realised that the baby left this humungous belly of mine a long time ago.
God - better ask DP if he has given birth lately - he has more wind than anyone else Ihave ever met - mind you he has the grace to apologise after parping and look a little embarrassed - I only do it in the toilet - or so I let DP and DD think - if DP acuses me of it DD says ladies don't do that!! - I have her trained well - she obviously is not a lady yet and thinks its hilarious!!
OK not been sure whether to add to this or not or whether to change my name, but I can't be bothered doing that. It does sound like a pelvic floor issue, I only get wind there in certain circumstances (insert blushing smile), usually during my Body Balance class (oh help I hope nobody who knows me reads this), I have found that clenching the pelvic muscles during the 'danger' stretches helps. The first week I experienced this I was horrified but the next week I can assure you there were many 'parps' from around the room after this certain exercise! All has been quiet the last few weeks so I can only assume I am not the only one who has got the hang of the pelvic muscles! o)
In BodyBalance it usually happens after lying on your back with your legs wide open, pressing down on thighs, then going from there into a three legged dog, perhaps raising your leg a bit too high! Do you do much of that sort of thing?
HI, have to say that unless i read you wrong if its not coming from the bottom end i dont see what it has to do with pelvic floor??? Perhaps just the stomach and all its bits and pieces are still a bit lazy from being pregnant?? What do i know anyway???
