Poor you! The 8weeks SPD is unusual and must be awful - struggled to cope with pelvic pain for the last trimester. By all means get yourself checked out if you are worried, but all else that you describe was me, exactly! DH got very good at tying my shoelaces!! The last two weeks of pregnancy were the most tedious of my life to date. I didnt gain excessive weight during pregnancy (although I did after - too used to not dieting grr) and was the same. I would say that I got some great nights sleep after birth. Pelvic pain was better straight away (well I was allowed to sleep on my back which helped) and feeding the baby, for me, was nothing compared to the sleep I'd lost with antenatal pain. So hope that bit at least is the same for you!
