Sounds exactly like how mine started. flowers It's horrible!

Mine was with my first and only baby and started at 12 weeks but I have hyper mobile joints and had a previous pelvic injury which make you more susceptible.

I have pelvic girdle pain and part of it for me is coccyx pain. It is horrible.

I have spd/pgp! my coccyx hurts. i have the sitting down and standing up pains. its my first baby. my pain started around 10 weeks but was v mild back then. it has got worse and worse. now 37 weeks. i would say go to the doctors or tell your midwife and try to get sent to the maternity physio. they can tell you how you can help it and check your pelvis is still straight, although there may not be a miracle cure! mine is really bad now. sorry sad and good luck!

oh, and i don't have hyper mobile joints or old injuries. Just unlucky i guess

Sounds like how my SPD started. Currently 30 weeks and spend a lot of time tentatively sitting and standing whilst squeaking that my bum hurts!

I'm a veteran of 20 years PGP. The best thing you can do is contact the Pelvic Partnership. They might be able to put you in touch with a chiropractor or osteopath in your area who specialises in treating it. They are much better than NHS physios, tbh.

Don't do anything that you don't have to do. No hoovering, pushing supermarket trollies or heavy lifting. Invest in a Serola belt. They're more expensive than the belts you buy in Mothercare etc but they are far, far better. Ice really, really helps. See your GP who can advise on pain relief.

Good luck. flowers

Mines started like that and gradually for worse day after day..wouldn't wish it upon anyone

Always remember one night i was folding washing on the floor and couldn't get back up. My partner was on nightshift and I literally sat there and cried for a good hour! Had to crawl/shuffle and eventually managed to get up with great difficulty. Can't offer much except I feel for u and to see a physio ASAP the exercises help a little bit.

The first soreness I had with SPD, I described to DH as if it felt I was 'saddle sore'. A deep pain that did get worse.

However, although I did find I really slowed down how quickly I could walk and I did have some pain, I wasn't incapacitated by it.

Noooo! Pushing a lawnmower is not a good idea especially without seeing someone like a chiropractor first.
