Sigh, I'm 18 weeks with DC no. 3, and my nether-regions are just ACHING. I'm hobbling round the office like a ancient crone here, and I'm NOT ancient.. hmm I KNOW it is just my ligaments down there stretching, but after 2 huge babies, you'd think they can't stretch any more. It's like well, just effing aches. I just wanted to whine really, it's not like my childless colleagues or my caring but incomprehensive DH can understand.. so, you're my only venting outlet. Vent Vent Vent. angry

I'm 14+4 and I feel like someone is stabbing me in the crotch. I thought my dh was being sympathetic, until I saw a sent text message on his phone accidentally on purpose to his cousin, saying second time around he, "doesn't know what all the fuss is about".

SPD?? What's that? Great, I AM falling apart.. And yes, you're right Pinkjenny. For the first I was (well, relatively of course) spoilt. Now it's like 'can you mow the lawn tonight darling, I'm going for a drink with some friends. Oh, and cook dinner and put the kids to bed too, and then there is the laundry and the general pig-sty of our house to sort..' angry. Ok, so it's not THAT bad, but that^s what it FEELS like.. Vent vent.

I hear you. Dh was away on Monday night, got home at 8.30pm last night and away tonight. If he wasn't so tight I'd think he had another woman wink.

I have weird stabbing pains in my nether regions, is that the same thing? It suddenly makes me go 'ouch' to mortified looks from colleagues and DH asking what I have been doing!!! grin

From me too, if it is SPD, do not under any circumstances do things which mean pushing trollies, carrying stuff, yes that is virtually impossible with a family. I know.

All my spd pain went while I spent a couple of days with my grandmother in a tiny flat, no house work, laundry, toddler care, or stairs. So I am living proof that the bl**dy hard work of being a mother at home can be crippling. The pain all came back when I got back home.

If you can collect together all essentials into one small room and basically live there it might help. I used to have to think a lot to plan what I would walk across the kitchen for, no spare footsteps at all. Seriously.

Even lifting up a cup of coffee caused a twinge of pain down in my pelvis, so weight bearing is bad.

Sex was a bad idea too btw, unless extremely careful. Delayed pain reaction to overuse of my body was another annoyance, so no immediate warning, but ache/pain some hours later.

Anyone who doesn't believe in SPD, may you hope you never get it.

I'm ok now
