Aching At 24 Weeks
I took this quick photo last week when I was 24 weeks pregnant. These days I am feeling incredibly sore and achy. I definitely never felt this way with my boys. It's like my whole hip/pelvis area feels like it's going to break in half. Rolling over in bed hurts really badly. Walking often gives me shooting pain from my sciatic nerve. Laying on my side for more than a few minutes makes my hips ache. I feel like an old lady! I'm going to talk to my midwife later this week about all my aches and pains. I'm pretty sure she's just going to say this is normal with subsequent pregnancies, since everything is loose and stretched out and moved around inside of me. Or something like that.
I'm Stephanie, mom to 4 beautiful kids, wife to my high school sweetheart. Here I write about my adventures in pregnancy and motherhood, with a little family life, food and fashion thrown in. I hope you will stay and read!
