Has anyone ever had urinary incontinence BEFORE their first child?! 39 weeks.

I am 22 years old, first time pregnancy, 39 weeks. Completely healthy other than this one problem that i have had my entire life. Ever since I was a baby I have not been able to control my bladder when I laugh. Almost every single time I laugh I wet my pants...its very embarrassing...Throughout my life I have been very ashamed of this issue and honestly have tried to hide but as I have gotten older it continues to get worse. I know have to wear pads whenever I go anywhere where i think i will laugh otherwise i soak myself through my underwear. Most doctors think it is stress incontinence. They say because I have trouble relaxing when I use the bathroom I do not empty my bladder all the way and have urine left over, hence why I have to use the bathroom every 20 to 30 minutes. Naturally being pregnant it has just gotten worse. No one can give me a REAL HONEST answer on whether or not my problem will get worse if I have a vaginal delivery I would like to have a vaginal delivery but only if my problem is not gonna get way worse. Im already in pads I dont wanna be in diapers and I only have a week left. I have scheduled the C but the doc says it up to me....NOTE: I have seen several urologists and because I have no definitive diagnosis none of them can recommend for or against the C section. Thank you!

I don't think I would go through the pain of a c section because I fear incontinence because if you had it before you ever got pregnant you are still going to have it after no matter how you delivered..after you have the baby go to a urogyn and get injections for your incontinence or to find out why it is occurring..mine was just age related and the coaptite bullking agents fixed it let us know what you decide. and feel free to ask any questions about the procedure
