I am 16 weeks today. If you had told me 7 weeks ago that I’d be feeling this much better, I’d never have believed you.
The back complaints have started in earnest now though- I’m getting a lot of pain and clunking from my SI joints at the back of my pelvis. This is radiating up my back. I think this is about where I was last time. I don’t have (and am eternally grateful for) the crippling sciatica that I had last time.
When the pain gets too much, I’m bypassing physios and going straight to an Osteopath. I didn’t do this soon enough last time and suffered unnecessarily.
The sickness is manageable now, though not totally gone, so this week sees me start a phased return to home life with a toddler.
Wish me luck. I want to be back home by my birthday at the end of Feb.
