I am so sore I feel like I must spend my days chopping down trees or something. My hips are naturally quite wide, which is a boon during labor, but I have to keep two pillows between my legs at night in order to keep my legs parallel (chiro says they will be less sore this way). I think some of my soreness does come from my twice-weekly chiro adjustments. My pelvis is slightly out of alignment b/c I have scoliosis. It is not that big of a deal, though. I birthed my DS with the same "problem" and my whole labor was 6 hours. I just imagine that it will be much faster if I am properly aligned this time.
Jennifer, I am so sorry that you are dealing with this! Around this stage was when I quit my job last time, and I worked at home!
I was just so nauseous.
Stormgirl, I think that your DP just hates seeing you feel so bad, and doesn't know what to do. My Dh is the same, only I need help to get out of chairs, and up off of the floor. It is very humbling, I must say.
And I hate seeing us this way, too. I vowed that I would be really fit for this birth. Last time, I was not too fit because I couldn't work out at all due to nausea. Prior to both pregnancies, I worked out daily and taught yoga.
And now? Yesterday, we took a walk up the street
and I was sore for many hours afterward. It is a sad story.
