    I remember but only because the physio told me it helps with the SPD.

    I'm not very good at holding it for a long time though. It makes me go all funny and shudder. I prefer the quick clenches lol

    Terrible at remembering and hate doing it. I read an article though that said squatting is just as good so I've been doing that instead!

    Lol - I don't think it makes all that much difference. I've read articles where they say doing them is actually worse for you and you should squat instead, and ones where they say doing them before birth makes no difference, you should do them after instead. But none of my sisters remembered and had babies between 9 and 11lbs and none of them have had any problems. My Mum had 5 10 - 11lb babies and she says the only problem is when she does a big sneeze - I think that always happened to me lol!

    I'm terrible at remembering them, but I've been wondering if it's more important after, the first time I've heard them mentioned was at antenatal class this morning, and it was just a fleeting remark.

    Id like to think if it was that important my mw would have mentioned it before now.

    Yea I think after is probably more important too coz thats when the muscles need to return back. But if they over stretch will they return to normal? Ah I'm so confused!
