Oh, my grinding pelvis and popping back. My bones are LOOSE these days!

Everyone knows that with pregnancy comes stretch marks, boob growth, morning sickness and so on. Nobody ever said how much your bones and joints act up though (except Veronica, she did blog about it)! I’ve started to notice pains in areas that I never knew could hurt, guys…

I mean I’ve got some major grinding and pain at my pubic bone that is hellish! I know it is just my pelvic bones separating and preparing a path for baby but “oh-mah-holy-hell” (a phrase stolen from Hotfessional) it freaking hurts! If I keep my legs really far apart and waddle while walking I can ease the grinding but who wants to see that?

Also, whenever I move it seems something is popping or cracking in my back or hips. All the relaxin and progesterone are really making me a flimsy, bone grindy mess! I roll out of bed to pee for the millionth time and pop, my hips cracks. I bend over and snnnnnap there goes my tail bone.

I even went to see the chiropractor today to be adjusted but as soon as I was snap-crackle-popped and back to normal things moved right back to their wrong places again.

I am not the only geriatric, wobbling mess in the house though. N is in some major pain these days after beginning the moving process. He is doing all the heavy lifting and loading of things in and out of the car. I am packing and unpacking. So, he is sore and to make matters worse, while we were making the bed he managed to crack his tail bone on the window.

Now he is bruised and has sore, over extended muscles. We are both gimping it up these days! He thinks he will be able to move our entire house by HIMSELF too, he is seriously delusional! We have some heavy, antique furniture and I have no idea how he thinks he’ll get certain stuff up the stairs and in to the master bedroom alone…

If he gets hurt and can no longer lift for me I am not sure how laundry and vacuuming will get done, if he throws his back out who will scoop the cat boxes? LOL! For the next 3 months we’ll just be a few gimps in smelly, dirty clothes in a house the wreaks of dirty cat box and has pet hair all over the carpet. I can just see it now!

If you haven’t already check out my online baby shower here. Be sure to stop by to sign the guest book and play a game or two. Oh and you’ll be able to see some cute photos of the baby bump (and hear her heartbeat) there too!

  1. I do not miss those “how could I possibly hurt THERE” days. I had no idea that certain parts of female anatomy could move, let alone hurt!! But, it is worth it in the end…until she becomes a teenager anyway;)

    Tell N to take it easy. Both of you can’t be out of commission at the same time. That is just not allowed.

    Oh, for me, vacuuming helped the pelvic pain. I could do semi-lunges while I vacuumed and it helped with the achiness. Plus, it didn’t look quite as weird as me waddling around with my pelvis pointing forward and sticking my butt out!!

  2. I never even thought of trying lunges! My chiropractor tried to adjust my pelvis today, it helped a bit but the pain is still there. I’ll vacuum tomorrow and try your technique!
