Well, I’ve been hoping I might avoid the hip pain I experienced with the Mini Athlete this time around.
No such luck.
But at the same time, things are a little different this time around. Seems to be a trend doesn’t it? Last time, my SI (sacroiliac) joints were completely out of whack, and I also had Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction. It pretty much felt like I had been kicked in the groin all the time. Sounds pleasant, doesn’t it? This time, I’m really just feeling pain in my lower back, on the right side. This leads me to think it might be sciatica, but it could also be an SI joint issue. Given my Ehlers Danlos syndrome, it wouldn’t be that surprising.
I know I sound like I’m complaining…and maybe I am…but I really just want someone else out there who might be going through the same thing to know they’re not alone! And here’s the good news – it is TEMPORARY.
Yes, it might be frustrating for the next 14 weeks or so. No, I may not be able to be as active as I’d like to be. And my husband might have to deal with more whining and complaining than he’d like to.
But it will all be worth it when we get to meet Little Miss Athlete!
I’m still taking my daily walks with the Mini Athlete and I’m not giving that up anytime soon. I actually think it helps with my hip pain.
I had my glucose test early yesterday morning so I didn’t have time to take our morning walk. By the way, the test really isn’t as bad as it gets hyped up to be.
Here’s my suggestion. Ask them to give it to you in the bottle with an empty cup. Then pour small amounts into the cup and drink them like shots. Yes, this sounds funny coming from a girl who doesn’t drink shots, but it really is the best way to drink this stuff.
Yesterday afternoon, the Mini Athlete and I walked over to the local football field to watch Daddy coaching his first day of middle school flag football! (He’s hard to see, but he’s kneeling in the middle of the field in this photo).
So adorable. I love watching him out there. The Mini Athlete certainly looked entertained.
Anyone else out there have hip pain during pregnancy? Any suggestions for relief?
