Pain in the butt!

Baby #2 arrived 3 weeks ago today. I'd post pics, but since my husband is a computer geek (albeit a sexy one!) I've never bothered to learn how. If you are motivated, Miss Ainsley is available at www.ainsleymcd.com. She is as sweet as can be, and I can't wait to buy her her first pair of sneakers!
I've been anxious to get back into running, myself, but since I sat on my butt for 8 months, I've got to start slow. I'm walking about 2 miles a day and increasing my distance daily. I had a C-section, so even though my wonderful doctor has not exactly banned me from running, I'll probably wait 3 more weeks to step up the impact. I was lucky (from what I hear) to have experienced minimal pain from the start - in my abs at least! I can do a sit up almost effortlessly...but my butt hurts when I walk! It's partially discouraging...and somehow funny just the same! On the bright side, it doesn't take much to feel like I've gotten a work out in!
Any suggestions on why the glutes are burning? My husband suggested my posture has changed. Curious.

What a darling baby! She doesn't have all the hair I promised you though. Congratulations!

Congrats! Hey, 2 miles a day less than a month after a c-section isn't small peanuts!!
I don't know if it's similar, but when I was nursing, I'd sit cross legged and lean to whichever side he was on. Then when I'd get up, my butt on that side would cramp up. It was definitely posture for me.
