Hi Jenni! Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome! I'm 31 weeks, due 3 December. Was planning on a natural hospital waterbirth until the local birth centre closed down on Monday ...so we're gathering our courage and going for a home waterbirth. I have some SPD too, it's a bugger isn't it!
Ah, I'm half an hour from my hospital so it's a little far to dash if I did it at home and needed help so I'm off to the main hospital. I've joined both threads now, thanks for the recommendation.
I'm currently on crutches and having acupuncture for SPD but nothings seems to make much of a difference to be honest, though my birthing ball is my best friend :grin: Nerdy is good - DH and I are a little on the geeky side ourselves
She was doing it into the ligaments at the side until this week, and that didn't seem to help as she thinks it was irritating it. She changed it to the top and bottom of my pelvic bone this week and it's a bit better than it has been. It's worth a try, apparently it can work really well for a lot of people. It can take 3 treatments for the results to really show though yay a due date buddy, other than the SPD how are you feeling? I have feet in my ribs
Apart from my pelvis I feel fine. Huge but fine!! Not particularly enjoying this heat though which is most unlike me. Doc signed me off work for 2 weeks as I was struggling with my spd, so I'm really glad not to be working when it's so hot.
Hot lol! I've been pottering around organising for my baby shower today so really am getting too warm. I also want to do a semi permanent hair dye and do my eyebrows but that's all I have to get done - not too bad! I just can't get to work, it's a 30 mile commute with a 2 mile walk as well as train and bus - was never going to happen once my pelvis went a bit iffy!
