Do you have to do things different than other parents? Do you have help? Do you think your children care or even notice?

I try not to lift Becca as much as I would if I didn't have AS. DH helps a lot with lifting and carrying all her stuff when we go out. But I think I keep up with her pretty well considering. I just try to do as much on the floor with a comfy pillow. I try to do a lot of the cuddly stuff, and dh does more of the rough and tumble chase me around part. But I guess that is probably pretty normal.

How about you? Did you have your AI Disorder before you got pregnant? If not has it changed your parenting?

It definitely makes a difference. I find myself hesitating to pick him up as much as he gets bigger because my back is just a mess. You kind of adapt though I think, or at least I have. I know what causes the worst pain, and I kind of avoid doing anything to trigger the pain. Now that I'm pregnant I'm finding avoiding the pain is even harder than it was before....so you kind of just deal.

For mommies who found out or had problems with their AI disorder during or after pregnancy, I can imagine it's harder because not only are you dealing with pregnancy and post pregnancy issues, but learning how to handle an AI disorder too.
