Alright ladies, I need your 2 cents! So all in all pregnancy has gone pretty well so far (🙏🏼), however, I'd be lying if I said it were all a walk in the park. Nausea until 18 weeks, not my favorite. SPD (pelvic pain) setting in around 18.5 weeks put an immediate halt to my running (thankfully I'm up for a challenge and have found plenty of other ways to get my HR up enough to stay strong and healthy for both me and the babe :)), BUT the latest and greatest ailment is SI pain!! UGH! It hurts!! To walk, sit, sleep, you name it. That being said, I will not be beat!! Haha. I work with a great PT who was able to loosen me up a bit with soft tissue work, then I found an awesome prenatal chiro who adjusted me and gave me some helpful corrective exercises and stretches. That being said I am feeling WAY better than I was a few days ago.
Have any of you dealt with SI pain!? What remedies worked for you and what exercises still felt okay? For me it's been elliptical, walking (mostly flat ground...boringgg), and double leg exercises (upper body is fine of course). Love to hear your words of wisdom!!! Xo
As a trainer with a certification in pre/post natal sometimes I feel like I should be able to figure it all out...haaa if only! I am grateful that I can typically get on the right track, but sometimes nothing speaks higher than experience...soo thanks in advance for all of YOU sharing your stories!! 💜
PS for anyone wondering, this pic was taken at 27 weeks, I'm now 31 weeks and need to take some updated pics! 😜
