Instagram ‘cleanfluencer’ Mrs Hinch has revealed that she is struggling to do daily tasks after giving birth to her son Ronnie due to agonising joint pain.
After ‘quitting’ social media to spend time with her baby boy, Mrs Hinch gave fans an update on how she’s been since giving birth to Ronnie back in June.
The new mum, real name Sophie Hinchcliffe, took to Instagram to share that she has been suffering from joint pain and night sweats following pregnancy.
The 29-year-old wrote on Instagram stories: ‘I’m hoping someone may be able to help me here. I’ve been putting off asking because I feel worried about it…
‘But for the last 4 weeks I’ve been waking up in the morning with the worst joint pains in my fingers and knees and sometimes I can’t even change ronnies nappy, or walk to the bathroom properly.’

Adding that she’d also been experiencing night sweats, Sophie continued: ‘And also the night sweats are still terrible.
‘I’m just wondering if I’m going a bit mad or is this all something to do with post pregnancy.’
The influencer ended the post by saying she’ll be visiting a doctor to check out her symptoms, and asked fans whether they had experienced anything similar.

Hello Hinchers… Mr Hinch here. Yesterday, the 20th June 2019, at 4.11am, I watched my wife, the love of my life, bring our beautiful son, Ronnie James George Hinchliffe into the world, weighing in at 6lbs 1 oz. I didn’t think I could love Soph any more than I already do, but I was so very wrong. For once, I am completely lost for words. All I can say is thank you for your unbelievable kindness, loyalty and the most pure and genuine love we both feel from you all. I know you’ll understand that we’ll be quiet for a while whilst we take these precious moments in and enjoy our baby bubble. I will be spending today and the rest of my life caring for, looking after and protecting my beautiful wife and son. Ronnie, our darling boy, we love you more than we ever knew possible 💙 Henry, time to be the best big brother ever my boy 💙 Soph… your three handsomes love you and I am so so proud of you ♥️
‘I will book an app with my GP but has this happened to any of my followers?’ Sophie wrote.
The cleaning guru’s fans flooded her Instagram with messages of support and advice, after which Sophie wrote: ‘Thank you so much for all your messages because it’s making me – I’m not as worried now.
‘My thumb won’t ever work this morning. My knees – it’s just so bad.’

She added: ‘I’m still going to go and see my GP today and find out what I can do to help it. And it’s so uncomfortable.
‘I can’t wake up and even change Ronnie’s nappy without hurting – and I’m like what, that was never said to me.’

Hello my wonderful Hinchers , how are you all? So .. this is a bit of a different post from me today 🙊 originally I accidentally posted this picture on my Mrs Hinch Home account and then quickly deleted it! I thought I was logged into my personal Instagram account and I started to panic 🙈 But then for a while afterwards I sat in my egg chair and thought to myself , why have I deleted it? Why did I panic? I am Mrs Hinch , this is my home , and our handsomes will soon be joining our Hinch Family. If you watched my story today you’ll see it started off difficult and I was a little emotional (sorry about that) but we all have days like this I’m sure , and that’s okay! I then read so many of your amazing messages and spoke to my mum (she always knows best) and realised I’m not going to lose this day! I’m going to laugh and I’m going to find little things I can do around the home to make this day a good day! Dust yourself off and try again as they say, and that’s exactly what I did. So I’m sorry this isn’t an interior pic , even though my lamp and baskets in the background are beaut 😂 but this is me .. Soph! I am the person behind this account after all! I can’t wait to meet our handsomes 🤰🏼and I can’t wait for you all to share this next chapter with me, Jamie and Henry. So I’ll click post now, chuck my phone on the bed and go downstairs so I’m not tempted to delete it again 😂 after all I know my Hinchers support me , my family , my life and my hinching in the most amazing way .. and I’m forever grateful , I owe this account to you all xxxx Ps: My Hinching isn’t going anywhere guys 😉 I’ll be back in full force very soon 💪🏼🧼 PPS: I paid £8 for this dress from Boohoo’s website! Barg 😂 ALL THE BEST ❤️ xxxx #mummyhinch #mrshinch #babyhinch #hinchyourselfhappy #imahincher
According to the NHS, it’s common for women to experience back pain post-pregnancy.
Although night sweats are typically associated with the menopause, a 2013 study from the University of Pittsburgh reported that 29 per cent of women experienced hot flashes after pregnancy.
Changes in the body’s oestrogen and progesterone levels can trigger an increase in body temperature. It’s also the hormones job to rid the body of excess fluids that supported the baby during pregnancy.
We hope you feel better soon, Mrs Hinch!
