PGP/SPD???

OMG over the past few weeks I have developed the most unbearable pain in my pelvic area, in my back/bum cheeks blush and also on the left side of my pubic bone sad

The pain feels really stiff and like something is trapped, walking, standing from sitting, rolling over in bed etc makes it worse and at night it is even worse. It is keeping me awake at night and making me hobble like an old woman. The pain at the front feels like someone has punched me

I had SPD in my first pregnancy,but this was only mild and only in the front on my pubic bone, it did however cause me big problems when in labour and I had a emcs (not necessarily caused by the spd i might add) I didnt have it in my last 2 pregnancies, so this has come as a shock, Im only 15 weeks pregnant!!!

Does this sound like PGP and SPD? should i speak to someone? Is this likely to get worse??

It sounds like pelvic girdle pain to me. I have had it during each pregnancy and its got worse each time. I asked for a referral to physio and I have exercises to do. I'm really not sure its doing any good but its worth a try.

Go to an Osteopath - honestly worked wonders for me.

I see a physio for mine, it started at 21wks, first in my sacro illiac joint then in pubic bone. I've had physio 6 times now, 37wks pg, and it has helped alot each time but then gradually moves out of position again. Excercises help and I have a pelvic strap which is really useful. I find sitting on a gym ball helps and sleeping with a pillow between my knees and another in the small of my back, with a duvet under my sheet all helps. I'd get a physio referral asap/ They'll also tell you to try and keep your knees together as much as you can, when getting in a car for example, oh and no hoovering or pushing shopping trolleys!

I have got similar pains only right up the fanjo blush that happen when I walk.
