Scoliosis and Pregnancy

Hey ladies. I just found out today that I have the start of scoliosis. I was just wondering if anyone has had that and went on to concieve and have a successful pregnancy. I'm also kind of looking for advice and support as well.
Thanks.

Hey girl. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I hope you are able to conceive without any complications.

Thanks girl- It's just one devastating blow. I now have the daunting task of putting in leave from work (dr said I am not allowed unless its a desk job or envelope stuffing).. And start to get on disability..

Do you think it could be a smiley face and not laughing or it could be they meant to hit the heart but didn't know they hit it by mistake.

I don't know but it seems like every single one of my posts have a laughing reaction. I'm hurt and offended that people always seem to think I'm funny or have something funny to say. I just wanted tips or advice but instead- I get laughed at

Hey hun, I have scoliosis. Have also had 2x spinal surgeries as well (though surprisingly, were to do with an accident and not the scoliosis). I'm currently TTC but also have a 5 year old daughter. Because of my surgeries (a fair amount of metal work) and also because she was frank breech presenting (so bum down, feet up) I was booked to have a c section. I had absolutely no dramas with my spine whatsoever with that pregnancy. In fact, I didn't even know about the scoliosis until a few years later. So I would suggest following your Drs advice and perhaps if sore, seeing a physio to assess whether you need a brace or support to help your spine. Wishing you all the best x

Chris - thank you for those words. Knowing that pregnancy doesn't seem to bother it more makes me feel better. Anyways, I found through x rays through a specific clinic called bone and joint. Nothing was said much more then "you aren't able to work anymore." Never had a surgery or anything of that nature. I am going to physical therapy twice a week for it and using heating pads.

Hello! I know this is an old post - but just wanted to mention that I had severe scoliosis that require fusion from t2-l3, and it hasn't impacted my fertility or birthing ability one bit. I've had 2 big baby boys born at home (with fully qualified midwives!) and the only issue I had was extra back pain at the end of my 2nd pg because baby was posterior. also, check out build and breathe pilates for scoliosis and fusion - I just found it recently and it's a game changer in pain management!!
