    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.

    I had DD 4 weeks ago and I'm bent over like an old lady! Feels like its going to snap too. 1st and 2nd I never had this issue. Sorry cant help but you have a fellow sufferer here!

    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.
