I feel like I'm having postpartum SPD. I had no issues before I had the baby, but now I keep having twinges of pain, especially when I'm trying to roll over in bed at night or when I first get up from lying down or sitting. Anyone else have this? I went to the chiro today, because I've also been really headachey lately. We'll see if that helps.
I'm not having issues this time (in fact, haven't had pelvic pain since Oct. sometime), but I had SPD twinges for two years after DS was born. Chiro only helped so much. What really got me over the hump to being pain-free was exercise, specifically Pilates. There is a book called "Healing Pelvic Pain" that has some good exercises in it, too.
she is such a happy little girlie. she sleeps a LOT though and hasn't gained much yet. im not sure how low her weight went but at her 1 week (thursday) she was not yet back to her birth weight @ 8lbs6oz (she was 8lbs 11oz at birth) she does nurse lots but maybe not as much as she could. i try to wake her and she dozes so easily! and she only nurses a few times in the night. i know it will change and that she is doing what she needs to do right now.. and since my other LO's have been slow gainers i know its just how they are.. but its hard not to worry about something!
I"m so glad things are going well for you, Fern! It sounds like you've had such a great babymoon. As for Hazel's weight, everything I"ve read and been told says they should regain their birth weight by TWO WEEKS of age, so it sounds like she's doing great! At two days shy of two weeks, Paige was still 6 ounces shy of her birth weight. She was also very sleepy, and for a few nights, I woke her up every 2.5-3 hours to feed her. Now she wakes every 3 hours or so on her own (3w1d).
I"m still feeling lots of abdominal tenderness from the section, but I strapped P in the Moby wrap and took her for a walk today. It felt sooooo good to get out of the overheated house! Temps were very chilly earlier this week (low of 17 F), but are now back to normal. What a relief! I've got house and baby to myself for the moment, as DH took DS on an "adventure" today.
