sciatica. its driving me up the wall! it hurts so much now and im only 8 weeks. what's it going to be like when i'm full term?
ive mentioned it to my doctor. i just hope i can move out of these flats before it gets any worse
i don't think i'll have time for any physical therapy as it is, but i am going to cut down on my hours after christmas, so i'll ask at my 12 week scan when i see the midwife. my doctor didn't seem really concerned about it. she just wrote it in my notes and said the housing people probably wont do anything about moving until later on in the pregnancy. by then i'll probably be house bound, unable to go down the stairs! i thought it only occurred later on in the pregnancy aswell as i only got it with william in my last trimester, but it came in strong force last week and it's been getting worse since then
tell me about it. i loved it when i could see william moving inside me, but it kind of got annoying near the end. the amount of water infections i caught during my pregnancy and also thrush! i was so glad i didnt have morning sickness with william, but i did this time but its gone now thankgod! i so cant wait until the end and the baby is here im so impatient
Actually, pregnancy sucks for a very lot of women. It can be depressing and incredibly rought with sickness.
What happens in early pregnancy is that your body produces hormones that loosen your joints (progesterone) and during that, your hips may shift slightly. Don't worry, it all goes away afterwards.
Stopping activity will only stop the pain during the time you are 'resting'. Trust me. I was thinking I'd be saving up all my energy and getting myself better by resting - but it does not happen. You will not 'get better'. This is a condition that is going to go on until you deliver. As rough as it is that Dallas' mommy's doctor said tough it out - cuz that does seem pretty callous! - it is true.
You have 8 weeks down and 32 to go.
Check into physical therapy, chiropractic care an massage therapy. Don't put it off because you are only short changing yourself!
its a council flat, with absolutely no lifts! its a big pain in the ass, especially when i have shopping. i've got to take william up first, put him in his room. then take the shopping up and then the buggy! it's definately not good, especially when you're pregnant aswell
