My little guy is now 9 days old and he weighed in at 9lb 13oz at birth. Delivery went great and I delivered in standing and had a minor tear with a few stitches. My problem now is that the bones in my pelvis are killing me! I feel like they are bruised and it still hurts to walk.

Anyone else have this? Any tips?

Maybe see a chiropractor? My midwife suggested that both ds1 and I schedule an adjustment because ds had sticky shoulders and I was having sciatic nerve pain during the birth. (it'll have to wait till the budget can take it though!)

I think pelvic pain is pretty normal... the bones/joints are designed to spread and loosen to facilitate birth and then it takes several weeks/months for joints to restabilize. So feeling some discomfort, especially if you did a lot of squatting/pushing makes sense. However, if it gets worse or doesn't seem to be improving you might ask your care provider. I had some odd pain/discomfort/pressure along the front of my pubic bone (especially uncomfortable during urination) after dd2's birth and it eventually turned out to be a minor pelvic organ prolapse.

Yes. I had SPD in pregnancy and still have the pain 2 weeks out. I heard it takes 1-2 months on average to go away completely.

Yep, my pelvis is still pretty sore at 14 days pp. I plan on going to the chiro soon to get an adjustment to make sure everything is where it should be.

Thanks Mamas! I would love to go to the chiro but the budget is tight even though dh says we would swing it somehow... encouraging to know I am not the only one.

I had soreness with ds2 but not this intense for this long. I think I am a bit better today - not limping as much so I may just wait it out.
