    Default Backache after birth?

    Had DD 3 weeks ago and since then my back has been killing me! Like its going to break in half. I had a natural birth with morphine.
    I actually had a sore back throughout the pregnancy too.
    With My first i never had back problems during pregnancy or after birth.
    Anyone had sore back after birth? How long did it last?
    Thanks

    Yep, I did after DD1 was born. Never had any back problems before she was born or during pregnancy, just after.

    I would be walking or standing and then BAM! It would stop in me my tracks and then it would be ok again in a couple of minutes. I saw my Dr about it and was told it can happen sometimes. It took a few months to get better.

    Default Backache after birth?

    God yes! Had pelvic issues through pregnancy which disappeared immediately after birth, but then got severe lower back pain from around weeks 2-6 after delivery. Saw a Chiro and took quite a bit of Voltaren, it was very painful. From what I'm hearing it's pretty common, take it easy and hopefully it goes soon!

    I've always had back issues but I was told that you should have your back realigned after every pregnancy.
