So apparently pushing through the pain isn't useful!

Car in garage today, they decided to tell me when I got there that they'd need it most of today!

32 weeks today with severe PGP which I actually believed was a broken pelvis!

Sooooo, I thought "oh great! Il just make the 5 mile journey home, on foot!"

I also thought if I walked far enough, I'd simply walk to pain off....hmm apparently I'm as stupid as I look! I now feel like my pelvis is in pieces &! I didn't even do the whole journey!

Don't be like me guys, I'm a dick.

walking always makes pgp worse. It's hard to get your head round because you feel like more exercise would be better but actually it has the opposite effect. Have you seen a physio 1 to 1? This website is good fr info www.pelvicpartnership.org.uk/

Have they given you a belt/girdle? Not sure if they still do, but I wore one and it helped.

Nothing has been mentioned about a belt or what not, however I have been referred to physio but the midwife said it'll be more beneficial to see an osteopath as they will be able to realign things.

I've been seeing an osteopath and it feels amazing the next day! The effects don't last long (a few days) but it definitely makes a difference. I schedule my appointments after a group of shifts as I know that's when it will really help xx

I did this but with swimming (breast stoke) blush . You have my sympathies flowers

Before it was every now & again, then I saw the midwife & she advised it will only get worse.

Then as the hours and days have gone on, it's just constant pain.

Up the stairs
Down the stairs
Flat ground
Sitting down
Getting up

All feels like my leg is about to snap away from the joint, only good thing, I'm off work until he arrives (so bloody lucky! As I work on 2 levels).

Honestly, am I a bad person for wanting my body back? To not be in pain? To not be fat??
