During each of my four pregnancies, I had to use a wheel chair, cane, or walker for part of the time. It was because of my dumb s.i. joint and pubic bone. It effects my left leg, and makes it hard for me to put any weight on it. During my last pregnancy, I finally took the advice my Dr. had given me every pregnancy, and started physical therapy. Twice a week until my baby was 9 months old I went to visit my new best friend, Dr. Cheryl. She gave me the most painful bum massages... and they cost a fortune. I quit because we moved to Virginia, and honestly, it also seemed like it wasn't really helping.
So here I am a year and a half later, and I feel like it is getting worse again. The weird thing though is that it only flares up during my period. Strange huh! Do any of you deal with this? I know it is pretty common. I just don't know what to do about it. It's been nice to have my husband home, he helps me put it back into place with my exercises. Maybe I need to start swimming more. That is what I used to do when I couldn't run. I'm beginning to stress out though because my half marathon is two months away, and I'm not feeling ready. I'm only up to 5 miles.
One last thing...
I went to target today and left my purse in the bathroom. Someone stole my debit card, but left my purse. I thought that was so considerate of them...I hate going to the DMV. Isn't life exciting?!!!
Thanks for listening. I feel better.
