Late Stage Pregnancy Discomforts
Erik thought it was strange that I've been having trouble moving in general the last few weeks. He even thought I was exaggerating at the amount of discomfort and moments of pain when I would try to get out of bed, move position in bed or getting up from a sitting position on the couch. I did some research and found that what I was experiencing is called Pelvic Girdle Pain.
I quickly called my OB to see if she could get me in. I'm expecting a call in a few hours because they can give referrals to physical therapists. And also got an apology from Erik for dismissing my claims of pain in the groin area.
My nurse called and gave me an exercise to do and told me to buy a belly band, the kind of Velcro support that movers wear. And if still no improvement by next OB appt they'll give me the referral to physical therapist.
