Title: moms who had SPD or pelvic girdle pain
How are you feeling now? I had it with DS and I recall the SPD recovering to at least 90% or so upon delivery, and then the other 10% or so within a few months.
This time, however, I'm not sure I'm ANY better than I was before delivering...maybe 5-10% better. I still need to sleep with a pillow between my legs (or just on my back--not sleeping on my belly due to nursing / plugged ducts) and it's hard to get in and out of bed. My lower back hurts when I walk if I have done certain activities in a day, such as picking up DS (my toddler--he's probably 30 lbs). DD is still so small it's easy to care for her, but if I have to carry her in her infant carseat I'm in trouble because the weight is so lopsided.
I was just wondering if anyone was in the same boat or if you all recovered quickly! I hope you did, but if you did not let me know, as well as what you're doing about it. I'm going to go back to physical therapy but my insurance only covers three more visits this year because I used so many during pregnancy. ugh. I'm really hoping I can fix this soon so that a) I can actually exercise and lose this massive amount of weight I gained (I'm like 30 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight...yuck!) and b) I can care for my two children!
Everything has been going great with DD since she came home except for this one thing, and it's starting to get me down.
