A Broken Tailbone

Ainsley is now 2 months old and my labor seems so long ago yet I have on lingering issue...a broken tailbone. My labor was quite the adventure...32 hours of back labor. At first I didn't even notice this pain in the butt. I was so tired and swollen that all pain just seemed to blend together. As the weeks have past and my body has recovered, I have noticed this pain in my butt that just won't go away. When I sit down it hurts, when I stand up it hurts, when I go from sitting to standing it hurts. It pretty much hurts all the time. On top of that, I am incredibly clumsy. I was hiking with Ryan on vacation and I fell directly on my tailbone and made the injury worse. There is nothing you can do for a broken tailbone but just let it heal with time (and try not to re-injure myself). I have been told that it can take up to 6 months to heal. So here I try to sit and wait it out. Wish me luck.


  1. You need to get one of those "donuts" to sit on. You can get them at any drugstore. They really help!
