3 months post partum... joint pain?

Postby hazelbazel » Fri Oct 18, 2013 6:44 am

Hi all! Ok so my body had healed pretty well considering. I gained 80 lbs and I'm down 50. But truthfully to get where id like to be I need to lose another 40. In any case my joints are killing me! My knees are the worst but my ables are really bad too. My back is much better but still pretty achy too. I can't get up of the floor because when I put weight on my knees is agonizing. Anyways is the joint pain normal? Did any of you get it? Or is it because I still have weight on me? I've been heavy before and never had this pain though. ...

Lurking... I have only had singletons, so I can't imagine with multiples, but OMG, the knee and hip pain I had months after I can had my daughter was unreal. I walked like a grandma every time I got up off the couch. It was crazy!! Got better :). Now I have terrible back pain from having my son :). Haha

I had hip pain for a while, took about 9 months-ish to get back to normal. It takes 10 months for us to grow a baby and it takes several months to get back to "normal" ;) Doesn't hurt to ask your doc though. I hope it eases up on you soon!

I had really bad joint pain in my fingers. My doctor tested me for lupus but everything came out fine. I think it took about 4 months to go away.

I'm 7 months post partum and definitely still have joint pain in my legs and hands and arms. I've heard other moms (of singletons and multis) complain of it also. I'm guessing it has to do with the loosening of ligaments during pregnancy and all the hormones, not to mention the strain put on our bodies by carrying around all of that extra weight and now I think mine is being exacerbated by hauling around two 15-20 pound babies day in and day out. My pelvis still cracks and pops all the time when I'm sitting. Drives me crazy!

I had really bad joint/leg pain for probably 9/10 months, and now on really cold days my legs will hurt again but I blame that on the bedrest. If you are concerned I would check with your doctor
