    since having joshua ive had a bad back.

    its fine through the day its just through the night.

    i dont know if its because how i lay or what.

    when joshua wakes up and i go to get out of bed i cant move,it take me a few mins to manage to move.

    it feels like my back has seased*sp?* up.

    does this happen to anyone else?

    do i need to worry

    I have this, no idea what it is though but i know that in the night i have to use my headbord to hold onto to pull me out of bed and then leaning over the cot to get Paige is a nightmare , also happens in the day if i'm still for to long.

    I should of gone to see the doc but don't wanna seem like i'm wasting there time.,

    I had a couple of contractions in my back during labour and thought this could possibly be the cause x

    I have a sore back but I thought it was because I have bad posture when I'm BFing. Then again I've been BFing less and it hasn't got any better! I had an epidural, an epidural top up and then a spinal (epidural and epidural top up did not work enough for c-section!)

    shit toria thats not very good.

    joshua was back to back so i had really bad contractionsin my back and i was in labour for about 22 hours.

    why would i/we still be having a bad back after so long after having the epi?
