25 weeks pregnant. I've had back pain for weeks, but all of a sudden I developed pelvic pain today. It feels like I've been kicked in the knicker department. Sitting/standing/walking is all uncomfortable. Please tell me: 1. It's going to end v soon. 2. There's a simple fix. 3. Next week's lottery numbers.
Sounds like SPD to me, though can't be sure with these things. I had it and it just got worse and worse Keep a pillow between your thighs when sleeping/lying down, and avoid walking a lot on hard surfaces. My physio recommended massaging the inner thighs if they're sore, bounce gently on a gym ball, and walk on sand. Especially walking on sand I found to be great. If I walked for more than 10 minutes on a hard surface/road in one go, I was in agony for the rest of the day and night. Had to get up at night to take paracetamol.
✋ another sufferer here! Got to love feeling like you've been kicked between the legs by a steel capped boot! I've been seeing a physio since 14weeks and I can honestly say she helps. There's no miracle cure (hoping it goes away once baby is here!) but it helps me manage a bit easier.
Now if only I could get rid of DH, DD and DS so that I could actually rest in peace........
I've found local specialist Pilates with a physio but annoyingly both classes are at a time I can't do. She does 1:1 but it's £££. Will see how long this persists and what private medical insurance might cover. In the meantime, I'll try a pillow.
