    You may have SPD- get yourself to a physio or chiro.

    It's crap isnt it! I had it for about 7 weeks. Can I give you one suggestion? When you get up from a sitting position and it hurts, stand on the spot and gently march your legs, swinging your arms back and forth (like a soldier) for about 1-2 minutes.

    Yes it looks ridiculous but it helps to realign your pelvis. I can tell you I am pain free now

    Yes, sounds like you have SPD (as mentioned by PP). I had it for 2 of my pregnancies. There are varying degrees, and hopefully, it will go away for you after the birth. But, given you have a long way to go yet, I would start seeing a physio right away and wear a pregnancy support belt (the physio can help with that). Also, as the area is probably unstable, try to minimise opening your legs outways- take care when standing up, getting in and out of the car, in and out of bed and so on. I had it very, very severely with my daughter this year- I truly hope it doesn't get any worse for you - I would be happy to give you more details, but hopefully you will be able to manage yours. Having a pair of crutches handy might help you as time goes by. All the best
