Am heading to the mater in an hour for my first SPD physio appointment and am wondering if the physio will actually try and manipulate my pelvis etc of if she will just give me exercises?
I have been doing some exercises I'm managed to look up on the net but nothing has helped so far and I've had SPD since around week 18 (am now 25 weeks)
My SPD plays up mostly when going from lying down to sitting - cant begin to describe the agony! And if I walk for more than 30 minutes or so it feels like the baby is about to be born, the pressure is so unbelievable intense down there.
A few days ago my hip also started clicking whenever I walk and I can no longer bend down, lean over or sit on the ground. Bending is painful all round and makes it a little frustrating when I'm at home all day on my own!
We also haven't dtd for weeks now as it causes the utmost pain and leaves me unable to walk properly for days afterwards.
Anyone else going through this with me??
My midwife said we will have to write a birth plan together soon to try and avoid certain birthing positions.. Also, am a little worried/stressed as my first child was born premature at 33 weeks and I don't know if it's possible by I'm worried having SPD this bad may mean my cervix may start to open if the bones are already separating?
