so im 39 weeks today.. my first was born at 37+6 so i have never been this far pregnant.. today the pain in my pelvis is so extreme its causing back ache and neck ache.. tried bouncing on the yoga ball and taking panadol.. cant wait for her to be out as i cant deal with this pain much longer.. Dr will induce at 40+4 if i have not had her before but i really dont want an induction again.. so trying to keep as active as comfortably possible.. im just over it. sorry for the rant just hoping someone can shed some light about SPD how long after birth will it go away??

I'm very happy to report that my SPD virtually went away overnight with both pregnancies. This time around I was in terrible agony by the end of the pregnancy with both hips terribly sore on the outside (bursitis) so I couldn't lie on either side in bed for long without agony and I had SPD as well. I also tried to keep as active as possible, but it was increasingly impossible. But the bursitis and SPD pain was pretty much gone when I got up after the birth. It was funny cause I was a bit wonky and funny getting up after the birth (I'd had an epidural), but I said to the midwives it was easier than when I was pregnant - they thought it was funny!
I had bad coccyx pain in pregnancy too and unfortunately that has not gone away 100%, but still lingers . Not as bad as it was though.
Although my SPD pain went away after my last pregnancy my muscles around my pelvis were weakened and to get my pelvis stable again I did need to exercise with a physio before I could return to more strenous activities like bushwalking. I recommend seeing a physio after you recover from the birth. I'm hanging out for my 6 week check up, then I can restart exercise with the physio to build up my muscles again.

Sorry to hear you are having a rough time, and I completely sympathize with what you are going through!
I was worried about my SPD sticking around after the birth, but it went away around 48 hours postpartum! Not long now for you! I hope your bub makes an appearance soon

This is good to hear. I'm coming up to 33 weeks and have had pain for the last week. Within a week it hurts getting in and out of the car (not to mention the pain when driving), can't turn over when sleeping without pain and hurts when I walk. It's nice to know that there is a chance it will disappear after the birth.
Planning on seeing a physio sometime soon, can't imagine another 7 weeks of this and didn't realise it could come on so quickly!

wow only just found this post again its been almost 8 months!!
thanks for your replies i had her on the 5th Nov 2011 (39+2) it took 9 weeks for SPD to go away. i also lost 22 kilo's and barely have any pain.. i didnt have drugs during her labour (i was meditating the pain away instead) went from 2cm in 5 hours to 10 in 40 mins had 7 mins pushing and my second princess was born my pelvis actually seperated and i was seen by a physio and chiropractor also had acupuncture too.
since birth life has been an emotional rollercoaster.
she now is having operations in 6 days 2 on her nose one for a tumor on her voicebox, as well as waiting on an eye specialist appointment as she has a lazy eye and keeps falling over and doesnt reach for things well, and she is seeing the geneticist also as we suspect she has mosaic down syndrome sooo just taking it all 1 day at a time..
