Five for Friday 3/29/19 & 4/5/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One PT. Strengthening. Cardio. OMT. Electrical Stim & Heat. We talked about different ways to hold Lucia so my ribs don’t flare up.
  • Two Days of Home Rehab.
  • Prolotherapy! I made it back to Indiana after 15 months, a pregnancy, and a hard labor. So grateful for this treatment that has saved me from many major surgeries so far. We did my hips, pelvic area, shoulder, thoracic and first few ribs. I’ll go back in a couple of months for my neck. In the next few days, I lay low and love up my heating pad.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. We covered a lot in that hour. And guess what? Healing is not linear.

1.Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 6 week postpartum appointment on Monday. Everything went well…I cleared for exercise. However, I left out the part that I’ve been exercising the last couple of weeks. Oops…did not know I had to wait for the green light.
  • PT on Tuesday. An hour of exercise, a half hour of manual medicine, and 15 minutes of heat and electrical stim. I’ve missed the stim.
  • One two mile walk with a pitbull. IN SUNSHINE.
  • One Day of Home Rehab…better…still need to add 1-2 more days.

Five For Friday 2/22/19

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I made my return to PT after six weeks! My joints were a bit of a mess after labor and the break, so I was in desperate need of manual medicine.  I exercised for an hour as well…After the treadmill, I said to myself, “But did you die?” I did not, so I’d call the first day of my comeback a win ; )
  • Now, how do I find time for the other days of home rehab? My next goal…

Five For Friday 1/11/19

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT. Diaphragm breathing, kegal and pelvic floor exercises. My PT started at my pelvis and made sure I was in alignment up to my head (the best she could do with my ginormous belly).
  • Still walking and walking…4 outdoor walks this week…
  • Weekly OB Check: Well, I’m STILL pregnant. I would have lost a lot of money if you told me I’d still be cooking this baby on January 12. Things went well at my check. I had my first cervical check and I had zero dilation. Zip. None. Nada.
