Ouch. Ugh. Hmmm....

OK, ladies. I have to ask - do you suffer from foot, leg, and back pain every single day? I am always sore. Always achy. And pretty much always tired.

Amelia is a very tall girl and over 30 pounds already. I try to limit how much I carry her, but she wants me to hold her at least a couple times a day. Plus the up & down, in & out of the car seat. And when she has the face-plant-on-the-floor tantrums, trying to pick her up again is a major feat. That girl can really fight when she wants to! So I understand (and expect) occasional fatigue and aches.

But am I supposed to hurt all the time? Is this just a symptom of having a 2-year old around? Am I one of those people whose feet went nuts after pregnancy? Am I destined to fall into a long and loving relationship with muscle relaxers?

I have no idea. I am not sure I am normal.

Just thought I'd ask.

I'm tired a lot because of not enough sleep. I try to be in bed by 10, but it doesn't always happen. Then I am up at 6 before Ryan gets up. My back hurts a lot due to the same reasons you mentioned. I don't hurt ALL the time, but my back is in some kind of pain most of the week just from the wear & tear of a toddler.

Thanks. It's definitely tough. I am a terrible sleeper, usually up tossing/turning at least 4-5 times a night. I also wonder if stress plays a role. Maybe I need to start drinking wine. :)
