Audrey Roloff from LPBW Reveals She Has SPD after Giving Birth to Baby Bode as She Takes Stroll with Her Kids
Audrey Roloff revealed that she's unable to walk very far as she talks about her symphysis pubis dysfunction in a new post. It especially burns her because of her active past.
Yet, in her caption, Audrey shared that she was suffering from a postpartum condition following the delivery of her son Bode four weeks ago. The post is found below.
Audrey and Ember go out for a stroll
In the photograph, Audrey looks Spring-ready wearing a large coat with a pair of leggings, brown boots, and a matching beanie on her head. She smiled radiantly for the camera.
She held onto a baby stroller where two-year-old Ember sat well-bundled up wearing a cream beanie hat and pink boots. Both of the tot's hands were raised as she also smiled.
Audrey reveals her pelvis condition
The former "Little People, Big World" star wrote in her caption that all she can do these days is walk around her farm. "Thank you symphysis pubis disfunction [sic]," she added in brackets.
The tv-personality went on to note that the pelvic bone infliction was hindering her from running. Plus, she's hoping to bring Ember out on the slopes either Winter or Spring.
What is Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction?
According to HealthLine, Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction typically happens around pregnancy and affects the front and back of the pelvis. It sometimes causes severe pain along with discomfort.
The symptoms that make up the condition include clicking or grinding sounds in the pelvis, difficulty walking or using the stairs, and incontinence issues. It may also be painful to turn over in bed.
Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction occurs in an estimated one in five pregnant women to various degrees. As the muscles relax for pregnancy, the joints slacken and may become unbalanced, leading to discomfort.
Tori Roloff thought she had it, too
Last July, fellow "Little People, Big World" star Tori Roloff was convinced she had the same condition before giving birth to her daughter Lilah. In her Instagram stories, she said it was an all-day ailment.
Tori, who is wife to Zach Roloff, added that she was not a fan of taking medication. After giving birth, she later revealed she had a harder delivery than her first son, Jackson.
Audrey's tough delivery day with Bode
Meanwhile, Audrey's recent delivery of son Bode wasn't all rainbows and butterflies either. Last week, the red-haired beauty detailed the tough day she had on January 8.
Audrey didn't expect Bode to come on his due date, so she waited last minute to time her contractions and then go to the hospital. She was stuck in traffic for 25 minutes while in labor.
Ultimately, Bode was delivered safely and came out at a healthy 9.2 lbs measuring 21 inches. We hope his mom recovers soon so she can take some long walks with both her kids.
