I've been seeing the hospital physio since 17 weeks with spd, none of which I had with my first pregnancy. I have found ways to cope and wear a tubi grip (also have bad abdominal separation) and pelvic belt religiously, but still have days where I can barely walk!! Especially now with only 11 days til I'm due and bubs has turned posterior!!!
I was only saying to DF yesterday that I'm so glad we've got an ensuite in the bedroom coz there is no way I'd be able to walk to the toilet in the middle of the night if it was more than a few steps away!!! The pelvic pressure when I need to wee is insane!!!
I hope u find some comfort until your LO is due :-)

I've been taking a few painkillers though, panadol osteo during the day (as suggested by physio), and panadeine forte before bed. I've been a bit anti the painkillers until the past few days but I figure being completely wiped out every day can't be any good for bub either and he doens't let up on the karate chops to my insides so it can't knock be knocking him out too badly.
One good thing about all this though - I have absolutely NO concern about being in pain after my c/s.. DP thinks I've lost the plot but I'm actually looking forward to that recovery, as I know it's going to improve

If SPD was my only issue, I may have thought about it again but I had HG, 6 bleeds (1 huge one, where we almost lost him), and he came at 35wks.
SPD is very hard to cope with especially with other children at home. I continued to work F/T & my work was great but if I was a sahm I couldn't have done it.
SAHM is the hardest job ever!!!

As it is I am waiting for my babies to be school aged before going for number 3.
With DS I had no SPD, with DD it kicked in around 3-4 months. It wasn't nice for DS and I was very lucky he was so placid and easy going or I may have just fallen apart. I still feel guilty for being a bed ridden mum.

Have you looked into a chiropractor? One that cares for pregnant patients? I've had a couple of friends with unbearable pain and went to a female Chiro that worked on the pelvis and tailbone (not sure exactly). But all of them got great relief from it.
Also maybe consider pregnancy massage to help release the round ligament and ligaments around the pelvis.

On top of the already chronic and severe lower back pain I was having, I now have bad pelvic pain too. It really is the pits. I've never been in so much pain in my life, it's just miserable. I was already going to hospital physio for my back, so now at least the physio can try and help with the pelvic pain too. I can't do anything around the house without the belt, it is a Life saver.
