How I Expanded My Summer Bucket List #TriedImpressa

This conversation is brought to you by Acorn and Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports. All opinions are my own.

I love this time of the year but I also feel like it goes so fast, before we know it, we will be planning the kids' first day of school outfits and taking those fun pictures.  All this means is that we must enjoy every moment we have during the summer.  One way I have found to get the most out of summertime is to make a Summer Bucket List.  Now that the kids are getting older, those bucket list items are way more active and full of laughter.  I love it but the "curse" of childbirth can often lead me into some very uncomfortable situations with activity and laughter.  

It is one of those unfortunate things that a lot of women do not tell us when we are thinking about the beauty of pregnancy. Did you know that 1 in 3 women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL)? Way more than you would think - you are not alone.  After years of trying to deal with those annoying LBL while out with my family and friends I have found a new confidence thanks to Poise Impressa.

What is Poise Impressa?

Impressa Bladder Supports are a non-absorbent, removable product that helps stop bladder leaks before they happen. Yes - BEFORE! Hello confidence.  Impressa Bladder Supports are inserted just like a tampon to gently lift and give support to the urethra. This added support to the urethra helps prevent urine from leaking.  Brilliant!  

With this little lady we are always on the go, especially outside.  She wants to be on her bike, swinging on the swings or just running around the yard.  Girl has spunk and ready to be on the go all the time.  I am so blessed that this summer we have added many park trips so far because of her love for the swings and sunshine.  One of my bucket list items is family bike rides to the park.  As the kids are both getting better on their bikes I know that soon we will be riding our bikes to catch up with them rather than gingerly walking behind them.  I cannot wait!  

Adding Poise Impressa to my daily routine has allowed me to step out and not have that worry in the back of my head.  I am ready to not let an ornery bladder cause so much anxiety in my summertime fun!

And then there's this boy.  While he claims he is an "indoor kid" he sure does love to get outside and ride bikes and play baseball in the front yard.  But guess what?  That isn't why I need some LBL support when I am with him - he makes me laugh.  He is so smart and some of the phrases that come out of his mouth literally have me laughing so hard my stomach hurts.  Not to mention, he really does have a great sense of humor.  Love him and I love that I can laugh as hard as I want and not worry about those little leaks.  Summertime activities are always more memorable with some laughs involved.

  1. Happy Summer! I definitely love this time of year and thankful that I’m able to spend it with my youngest two. However, those two stay on the move. From cartwheels to chase, they keep me on my feet and moving. I can relate to the “childbirth woes” and love Impressa for helping regain some confidence and security while out and about enjoying life.

  2. I have never really heard about Poise Impressa until I just read your post. I did see them on the shelves but did not bother to find out more about them. It seems like a great solution for someone that is in need. My mom would have loved these. I can remember her limiting her activities because of light bladder leakage. I did not even know they made a product to help LBL. Since my mom had this, I'm always wondering if my day will come, too. It's good to know there is something out there to help.

  3. Great product for those who want to do more but letting things stop them. I know that when I was pregnant I would sneeze and have light bladder leakage it was embarrassing to know that they have this product for everyone is great.

  4. This sounds like an amazing product! I know I have had issues since having kids and having protection you can rely on is so important! I love that you are being able to go do more things with the kids now.

  5. I have heard such good things about this brand. Some of my closest friends have been buying them for years. I haven't tried them yet myself, but know I need to. Looks and sounds like they really make life easier.

  6. I think this is great! Can't let things like leakage get in the way of making memories with your kiddos! I know lots of friends that have issues with this after having kids, and it sounds like Poise Impressa is the perfect solution.

  7. You're right that summer seems to fly by! I was at the store the other day, and they already had back-to-school displays! Eek! I wasn't ready to see that. It's awesome that those with LBL can take part in summer fun with their families, and not have to stay at home playing it safe.

  8. I am glad you found the perfect companion to enjoy more of the outdoors. It feels good to go out, have fun with your kids or enjoy a night out with your girlfriends and not worry about these intimate stuff going on. Enjoy the summer!

  9. The first thing kids don't put back is our bodies right? I've been working on building bladder strength with some squats and kegels at the same time so I can run and jump rope without problems! I love your ideas too!

  10. Thank goodness for these types of products that allow women to enjoy themselves and partake in different activities, as opposed to worrying about leakage and other issues.

  11. Impressa seems like God's gift to women who have bladder leakage problems such as my mother. Too bad it's not available in our local store. It can support leaks for up to 8 hours. Amazing!
