Did you know that your pelvic bone moves 2 – 5mm when you are pregnant to help the baby pass through the birth canal? Me either!! Sometimes they move a bit too much. When that happens it feels like a knife is stabbing you in the you know where! Ahemm .. yeah. mine did this. It hurts and walking hurts and turning over in bed, getting out of bed, getting out of the car, hurts. Its called PGP (Pelvic Girdle Pain) or SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction). It occurs 1-in-35 pregnancies.
I start physical therapy tomorrow which will include some simple exercises and the distribution of a pelvic belt that I have to wear to keep King from pressing on my cervix.
Speaking of King. This child never stops moving, kicking, jumping and doing somersaults! Its pretty amazing! Rob has felt some pretty strong ones too. Seeing this was music to the doctors ears. Although its early for all this movement, it means he is a healthy baby. I am also feeling contractions now but that’s normal for this time.
So there you have it. The PG gods are testing my will once again but it will only make me stronger! Bring it!
We move in 12 days. I have barely packed a thing. We are also having a garage sale and selling a lot of stuff. We are pretty overwhelmed with everything but as I always say .. everything always works out.
