I have an 11 week old baby girl and I'm starting to have a really bad time with my back...my pain is spiking almost every night now, and to the point where I feel physically ill and have trouble getting a deep breath. I am not on any meds right now b/c I am nursing and I'm not willing to give that up. I recently started streching again and have been getting massages every other week from a friend who charges me 1/2 price and usually gives me some extra time. The Fibro has at least been mostly under control, I'm having small flares with weather changes and when I don't get any sleep but they seem less severe & shorter lasting than before I got preg.
So my question is, how can I limit the stress on my body from caring for a newborn? I know some of it will come as my body adjusts to the new demands on it but I am really struggling right now and would appreciate any advice anyone has!
