Re: For the women

Absolutely classic!!! Crossfit baby weight competition. Crossfitters are we a "little" competitive or what? I hope to join in on this competition some time soon. That is if I haven't completely ignored the old bio clock ticking thing to my detriment.

Re: For the women

Caffeine is a diuretic and irritates the bladder. I really have a hard time running after my three cups of much loved coffee in the morning so I try to drink it early, pee before I go. At first only one cup then run come home down the rest of it. They (doc) gave me a pessary, not for uterine prolapse but to help with leaking. It pushes on your urethra I guess to help stop leakage. Not working so hot for me. Have to find some happy medium between staying hydrated and not peeing. Deadlifts sound good to me. I will be happy to do more.

firefighter baby #1 now 27, weighed around six pounds? (as she likes to say Mom you can't remember anything) 23 hours labor
yoga teacher baby #2 now 25, weighed 5.5 pounds induced labor lasting 5.5 days yes I said days, needless to say she was happy inside
student baby #3 now 18 weighed like 6.6 or something like that labor 9 hours

student baby #4 now 13 weighed 6 lb 14 oz labor 1.5 hours and by FAAARRRR the worst excruciating labor. I never made a peep, really not a peep with other kids but I was screaming with this one and they asked me to be quite I was scaring the other women in labor. He was the first baby of the new year, missed my tax deduction by 7 minutes.

And speaking of peeing, my water broke - third time at beginning of labor for fourth kid and labor and delivery nurse said "Are you sure you aren't just peeing, mam?" I said "I have had three kids my water broke and I am having this baby NOW!" No I was not freakin' peeing.

Kudos to you women with the big babies I just can't imagine. I could hardly squeeze out these little guys.

Deadlifts are also the #1 cure for menstrual cramps... Well, maybe #2 after magnesium... They are AWESOME.

Oh, and I haven't had babies not much to add on that front. I have like a half dozen friends that are pregnant right now, though...seems to be going around.

Re: For the women

You're having a competition for who has the fattest, most unfit baby?

Re: For the women

Get the Kegelmaster 2000. Its like a hand held weight machine for your pelvic floor. You just add resistance with springs that fit inside.

Weighted cones also helped.

I had a 10lb baby and it really helped.
