Becca,

Today my OH told her m/w about groin pain, and the m/w said that it sounds like she has SPD (Couldn't remember the actual name then or now).

She suggested going to GP for a physio referal to get a pelvic support belt (looks like a sumo wrestlers belt apparently!).

OH isn't too keen on that idea.

Have you had it before in this pregancy or a previous one?
Does it come and go?

OH didn't have it with DD, but it seems to come and go this time around.

Hope it isn't too bad for you!

hey there thanks for the support, i did have it with my last pregnancy 5 years ago but it was much worse than i have at the mo!! it can go all by itself, mine went after i had erin but i needed physio for a few months.A HUGE TIP DONT LET THE PHYSIO GIVE HER A WIDE PELVIC STRAP ITS HORRID I got one from my chiro which is thinner and you can wear under your clothes, it does restrict movement so no shopping marathons !!!!! im determined not to end up on crutches!

Hi hun!!

Sorry you are suffereing babe

Glad you had a great time away tho hun.........something always has to ruin our good moods eh?

As Paul has just said above, it looks like I may have it......I will never remember what it's called, I have problems with the HG as it is

Do you have the belt, and is it better with it? I know this sounds daft, but I take it walking is not the best thing you can do then? I thought walking may have helped until she told me what she thought I may have?

Take care babe xx

Walking is ok but not far but i find stairs and driving a prob! the belt helps though and go to the pool as much as you can , you dont have to swim just float My hubs is fantastic and has the patience of a saint as by the end of the day you may feel like you have been kicked you know where so get ready paul!! LOTS OF HUGS FOR YOUR LOVELY LADY! I fully understand where your coming from with this spd so if you need to moan do itit really helps.If you do have it get a gym ball to sit on oooooh its heaven!

Sorry i forgot to tell you tam the gym ball takes pressure off your back and 'down you know where' I normally sit on mine in the evening when its most sore.Try it , its good even if you dont have SPD.
