Pain on groin and inner thighs.. SPD?


The last few days I've been having a harder time than usual getting in and out of bed/car, and walking.. basically activities that would require me to move my legs apart. I experience some sort of a pain/soreness along my inner thighs and groin.. kind of like how I'd imagine the pain/soreness would be if i were to ride on horseback for hours!

The soreness is mostly on the joints, I think, and even around the left side of my woohoo (sorry TMI), like I had my hair down there being pulled (sorry, TMI again!). I can't really explain it. The joints and inner thighs don't really hurt so long as I don't move, but the one on m woohoo is still slightly sore even when I'm not moving. What is this??

I've read some of you have what is called SPD and I read up a bit on the symptoms, but I'm not sure if that's what I have. Does it sound like it? My dr won't be back till tomorrow so I definitely plan to call/email her tomorrow, but I wanted to hear also from those who have this condition.

Any input most welcome! Thanks!!!

Yah, I don't feel baby pushing down either so it's probably just my pubic bone too. Did your mw specifically said your condition was SPD? or something else?

Once your so far along theres not much they can do - With my Caitlin they never listens to me I was 36 weeks and I went over to th hospital to get fitted with some support belt OMG was that uncomfy I preferred without and she said "theres only one way for this to cure ...birth" 4 days later I walked past her on the labour ward with my baby I think my body gave up.

I have it now - its been building up This last few days have been hell and I'm only 30 weeks

I'm very sore around my groin area pelvic hips back legs even tighten ...I get 'stuck' which can be amusing when I ask OH to help and he laughs at me at night I find humping the OH (leg over him high) helpful ...he doesn't and when he don't play nice I use the MAT pillow to hump (I have a long straight one).

Definately speak to your MW about what your experiencing in more detail x

Yikes, so even the belt doesn't help?? I can't believe there's 9+ more weeks of this! I sure hope it doesn't come to the point where I can't even get out of bed!

I guess I can try that humping the OH leg thingy but right now, I can't sleep without a mountain of pillows propping up my right hip and back, and I sleep on the left side of the bed, which means the pillows are between me and OH.. I feel like we're an old married couple already

I've been having the same pain, and is always when I lay down no matter what side I lie on everytime I go to turn it hurts like hell. I thought it was probably just another one of those weird pregnancy aches. I do the same thing at night with humping hubbs and with the pillows. Sorry you are in so much pain, hopefully it doesn't get worse for any of us!

I have been experiencing the same thing. Not sure if it's SPD as I apparently have that and that hurts down my buttock/thigh. Just recently I have more pelvic aching, llike you describe, as if you have been horse riding!

I think the pelvis is probably coming apart more now and probably stretches all the ligaments down there. Very uncomfortable

I have that feeling too. I described it to OH last night that it was like someone had kicked me between the legs. I am sore trying to get out of the car too and moving in bed. Not long to go now so prob just have to put up with it

I get really bad lower back ache and an aching feeling down my thighs on both legs. It's usually when I've been sat down with my legs open for a while as I can't close them at all when sat down without leaning right back lol.

I hope your midwife could answer you whether it's spd or not!
