SPD is a son-of-a-bitch.


Things going well with my mom and babies. Spent a solid 20 – 30 minutes with Snort yesterday. He was looking at me and smiling & laughing. Bless him. Worry skips lightly from child to child, with associated concerns about various things. We are going to take Snort to a cranial osteopath due to his slightly funny head shape and open sutures. Both babies have been referred to eye specialists as Snort has an ‘intermittant squint.’ Coconut has thrush again – if it ever really cleared up in the first place.

And then there’s my crotch. My SPD is terrible. The community physiotherapist has said I am out of the bounds of her experience. Nice. I have just called the hospital to make an appointment with the specialist women’s health physio in a few weeks time. I am a relatively optimistic person, feeling like everything will sort it out – but in relation to the SPD, I do wonder if I am going to need surgery. I sure as hell hope not.

It’s all such a pain because it is appointment after appointment for Snort & Coconut, and as the stay-at-home parent I should be able to sort things out. Yes, it’s a pain because I don’t drive (yet?), but doable….if you are healthy. As it stands, TMD has to keep taking time off from work and going in late or leaving early. I think this worries her a great deal.

I am worried, worried, worried about my SPD. If going to the dentist Monday (on my feet for about ten minutes total) has made the symphasis pain flare up so much – and rendered my back useless – what the fuck hope do I have of all of this going away relatively soon? I’m not as pessamistic or whiny as this post might suggest, but that’s mainly because my mother is here and I have an extra pair of hands to lift babies and help me get around. The goal is really to make sure I am able to care for them once she leaves next Wednesday, so I need to take it easy.

On good days, I am able to care for them and wash & prepare bottles. That is it. Somehow when other people are around I end up doing way more, rather than less. Owie.

    Pain is not good. Hang in there and keep us posted!

    I’m sorry your SPD is still so bad. I hope something gets better.

    And I’m really sorry that the babies are having issues. I am very familiar with head issues. It’s no fun.

    Good luck.
