View Full Version : SPD......Help its coming back
I was diagnosed with Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction when i was 26 weeks and had to wear a support belt and correct my walking so that i didnt waddle. I only wore the support belt for 2 weeks as the pain seemed to all of a sudden dissapear and have still been very concious about my walking. I notice at 34 weeks the pain started again but it seems to be getting worse by the day. Ive even gotten to the point that once im in bed and comfortable thats where i stay i only move, with great difficulty, to get up to go to the toilet. I'm now 36wks and 4days and not sure how much more of this pain i can take.
I was just wandering if any other mums to be that had previously been diagnosed with SPD found it came back or got worse closer to the birth of your little bundle of joy? ANd if so what did you do to help with the pain?
Can't help with your question re- coming back in 2nd pregnancies but I can tell you that I had it bad with MJ.
Get a referal from your Dr/Midwife ASAP & contact Wyong Hospital Hydrotherapy (physio). I used to go twice a week to a class while pregnant it helped me so much. It only took a week to get in.
Goodluck. Feel free to PM me for more info :)
ITA with hydrotherapy, it helps heaps!
Did they talk to you about keeping your legs together, not vaccuming etc?
I can tell you what helped me keep it kind of at bay if thats any help.
you poor thing!!!!! ((HUGS))) well im assuming that you are already wearing your special belt thingy and all that, so other than try not to walk around to much, specially up hills and stuff, then im afraid i cant really give you much advice, just support, i had that too with Tilly and it HURT!!!
I know this is an old thread, but I thought it would be worthwile posting about a support group for women with SPD called the Pelvic Instability Association. Our web address is: www.pelvicinstability.org.au - we would love to hear from anyone who has suffered this.
