Does anyone else who's preggers have throbbing in their special area? Mine feels so swollen and throbby (tmi i know), but it's driving me mad. If i stand up for too long it's throb city downstairs! It's so uncomfortable. Anyone else suffering the same thing?
You sound like you've got SPD - symphsis pubis dysfunction (sp?). It's when the joints and joins of the pelvis become inflamed. I have had it in 2 subsequent pregnancies, but this is the only one (now 33wks) when it has been diagnosed. I went to a physio re. other back problems, described the symptoms you are describing and was told it's spd. They gave me a brilliant corset, and now use crutches also. Also sleep with a pillow between your knees.I don't hurt at the back, just the front and it's very swollen. There are lots of threads on SPD. Ask your midwife for a physio referral and see what they can do to help. Standing is not a good thing, so sit as much as possible . Hope this helps and your pain doesn't get much worse.
