So, I have a problem. Boys, you may just want to step away from this post… I’ll give you time. Go ahead back to your feed reader and find another blog. Really, click off….
Alright, back to me and my girlies. I got my IUD about 4 weeks ago. I was still having the usual problems with the IUD, with amounts greater than what I thought they were specifying. Prior to this, every time I would do a hard workout I would bleed. So, last week I decided to stop working out, just for the week. I am sad to say I really enjoyed that extra 1/2 hour of rest.
Problem was, my tailbone wanted to get back into the action (some of you might remember that after P I was unable to sit without a doughnut pillow for about 3 weeks — just for my tailbone). Come Friday I could barely sit without wanting to cry. Let’s not even talk about driving. I was even happy to teach RS yesterday so that I wouldn’t have to sit. Yes, it’s just that bad (and church is the worst).
The not working out did seem to help the IUD issues, so I’m gonna do some light yoga this week to hopefully help my bones.
So, I don’t know if the tailbone just wanted some love, or if it was related to not working out. So, I have some questions for you, my readers — feel free to email me (link on the right) if you don’t really want to comment.
1. How long did you bleed after your IUD — was it what you would term “a lot” during the day — or just a tiny bit?
2. Do you have tailbone issues after your babies? How do you deal with them. I asked about 6 doctors on Saturday when I worked and they said it’d probably take a year or so. So darn helpful those guys. Should I go to my doctor, is there anything they’ll do?
3. Are you loving this blog post? I tried to term it as gentle as possible… but a girl needs to know. 🙂
Let’s just say I have 2 events in the next week or so in which I will be sitting for extended periods of time, and I might rather die at this point.
Really looking forward to it.
ETA: I did slightly separate my pelvis with P my unrelated cousin-in-law told me to buy this belt that I wore at work during the summer,and I may wear a couple of mornings a week — it really helped with the hip pain. FYI. 🙂
Ok, that’s not the belt I bought — but mine is similar — it’s kind of like a back brace for your butt and hips. It just kind of pulls everything together. That’s all I want, togetherness. 🙂
