I am half way through week 36 of my pregnancy and my body is killing me!!! I wake up every morning with intense back pain and a lot of pressure in my pelvis and I know this is common for many women but I am going to whine about it anyway lol.
I was born with Hip Dysplasia which is a condition where the hip is not fully developed and was detected by a “click” sound. This meant that while I was a baby I had to be in a Pavlik Harness for a long time to ensure that my joints developed properly.
I asked my OB/GYN about this in regards to the pregnancy and if would complicate anything for me. The doctor told me that if I could make a baby, then I shouldn’t have any problem delivering a baby. I am choosing to believe this but sometimes I feel like he clearly has NEVER been a pregnant woman experiencing all of the pains that come along with it. Also, I am wondering if it was the problems that I had as a baby that are affecting me now. Has anyone else experienced this??
