Is this one of those things that happens to every woman but nobody talks about.

5 minutes after a bath and its like your water just broke...

This is a thing yeah?

Nerdygalwithabook Tue 03-May-16 20:15:44

I think that it may be a thing ...
Either that or I recently peed myself.

Knotnora Tue 03-May-16 20:16:02

DP says its not a thing. In fact his exact words were 'what the FUCK is that' whilst I was getting dry hmm

It happens to me. Only since I had dcs though

AdrenalineFudge Tue 03-May-16 20:16:30

No I don't.

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Tue 03-May-16 20:16:48

Happens to me too.

SoThatHappened Tue 03-May-16 20:17:05

No. Never happened to me. It isnt a thing for everyone.

Knotnora Tue 03-May-16 20:17:13

4 DC here

Maybe the number of DC = size of waterfall.

Breaststroke swimming blush

I have this problem after swimming!

It is entirely normal.

Knotnora Tue 03-May-16 20:18:27

Do all of you no people swoosh around in the bath? I sit with my legs up over the edge if its too hot (visit to the gyne style)

ceeveebee Tue 03-May-16 20:18:28

This has never happened to me. But I had c sections so perhaps that's why!

ChicRock Tue 03-May-16 20:18:52

Yes! In fact I can sometimes squirt a significant amout of water out during my bath if I'm having a long lazy one.

StillNoFuckingEyeDeer Tue 03-May-16 20:19:01

Definitely normal.

Knotnora Tue 03-May-16 20:19:44

Well yes Chic, quite

I hadn't got around to mentioning that bit yet grin

Justmuddlingalong Tue 03-May-16 20:19:52

Yip. Usually escapes only to collect in my slippers. blush I think that unless your DP has a vagina, he can't really comment on wether or not it's a 'thing.'

BrandNewAndImproved Tue 03-May-16 20:20:05

I do but then I do pelvic floor exercises in the bath so maybe it's that

NeedACleverNN Tue 03-May-16 20:20:22

Yup. I sit on a towel for a good 5-10 mins after a bath

Nerdygalwithabook Tue 03-May-16 20:20:30

Im guessing not ALL them women on there have had kids.

I've a very weak bladder but this has never happened to me, got me thinking why not grin but I'm not complaining.
I unfortunately wet the bed if I have a chest infection etc, it's sooo embarrassing, pelvic floor is no more, it buggered off years ago. Sorry if tmi

Sitting with your knees up/legs akimbo is going to open things up and let water in.

It's happened a few times, only since I had DD. The first time I was sort of tensing up all my stomach muscles and created suction, so I felt it whooshing in shock It's happened without me noticing each time since.

Springdew Tue 03-May-16 20:21:31

Excellent thread.

Ladybirdturd Tue 03-May-16 20:22:05

Yep, happens every time since having dc.
