    When I was in labour with Oscar, I had terrible pains in my tighs. Since then, my left thigh seems numb but when I touch or prod it, it really REALLY hurts. It's like it should really have an enormous bruise. I don't know if I should be worried about it - it might be related to my back pain.

    Have any of you got any aches and pains that don't want to go?

    Yep!!!

    My epidural didnt take effect on my left side. This may have been due to my spina bifida occulta. Anyway since I gave birth I have been having bad back pain in my left side, so bad that I cant sleep on that side atall. The doctors have told me to keep an eye on it and they will send me for physio if it doesnt improve.

    Also my hands are quite weak and I have trouble gripping things. And (how can I put it?) my "saddle" is a bit numb! When I sit in the bath My bum feels quite numb.

    The day after I had Isaac I felt like I had been beaten up and I've not fully recovered yet I dont think. I generally feel very stiff and very old lol

    Yep! I'm still a bit sore down there, despite having only a small tear and no stitches plus I have piles :(, my tum is still hugely wobbly and I've done something to the ligaments in my foot (apparently stilll soft from pregnancy hormones) which has caused it to swell up majorly. Bah! Still it was all worth it and I'd do it again in a flash! How weird is that- are we mad?

    ooooo rosebay I had piles at the end of my pregnancy and I was pacing the house crying with the pain! It was worse than childbirth lol

    I used a rubber ring and anusol and luckily the piles went before I had Isaac and they didnt come back after.

    yep, me too!!!

    I am still a bit sore down there but I guess this is normal, it's only 2 weeks and a half, but my pelvis still hurts loads!!! I still find it difficult to turn in bed! That's horrible!

    Also, my tummy is a bit wobbly as well, when I laugh it's really funny to watch, it looks like jelly!!!!! :?

    And I have a big pain in my left knee, which has gone weak, esp. when I go down the stairs!

    I shall stop there as I sound like a grandma complaining over and over again!...
    Am going to sleep, if Maheen does not wake up!!! sometimes, I think my doughter has a sixth sense of when to start crying!!!! not yours? :wink:

    Generally fine but I've lost a lot of flexibility, and my knees and finger joints feel stiff... plus my back is out big time...can't lie on my left side any more - I suspect because I lay on my right all through the pregnancy!

    If I stand up too long my tummy feels 'empty' and my bits feel like they might fall out :?
