I thought it would go away when they were born, but now my twins are 2 and I still get it sometimes. I have to actively work on my core muscles, otherwise I get the same debilitating pain and can't walk. Still, it's been a daily issue for me for 2 years, and I know that picking up 2 kids all day, plus all the toys on the floor and endlessly stepping over baby gates just makes the whole thing worse. The root of it is my lower back but that messes up the rest of it all the way to my neck.
I have talked to a couple other twinmoms who tell me that they've had the same problem. Interestingly, they have di/di twins, and my mo/di (1 placenta) twinmom friend doesn't have the back pain!
So tell me, especially if you had more than 1 placenta in your pregnancy, did you have back pain that continued after pregnancy? Did it ever go away for you? what did you do about it?
