I just dont want to be worrying untill i see my m.w next wednesday.. Many thanks xxxx

    it sounds like spd/pgp. getting up after sitting/lying is such a bugger! feels all stiff and literally onlyway to move is to penguin it!
    don't forget baby is getting biggar and everything is stretching and pulling here there and everywhere, there's more pressure down there.

    It does sound like SPD, i have to get on all fours and shuffle out of bed, i can't just swing my legs round! Mention it to your midwife next time you see her and she might be able to refer you to someone x

    I have had it since about week 28.Worst when I am lying down and get up for the toilet.
    I have to walk like a crab and can't get my right side to click properly.

    I've had that achey pain too for quite a while now probably since about 26/27 weeks. It's not horrible, but it's quite painful after walking or standing up etc. Pretty crappy!

    Just agreeing with what a few others have said, sounds like SPD or the newer name PGP (pubic girdle pain). I started getting it last weekend and fortunately I had the midwife on Tuesday so I asked her about it.

    It's mainly to do with the baby getting bigger, putting pressure on your pelvic bone and the fact that our ligaments soften during pregnancy and the mucle between both sides of your pelvic bone is stretching.

    I'm having difficultly sleeping some nights, turning over in bed can be horrendous and when I wake up I feel like someone has kicked me between the legs :rofl:

    me too, had it about the last 3 weeks. feels like after you've been horseriding (yeah right! can you imagine- its enough effort getting out of a chair never mind onto a horse!) mentioned to mw the other day, and she just said its everything loosening right up plus the weight of baby now (and there was me all excitied thinking it means baby was starting to engage, but no). x

    I have also had this for about 2 weeks now.

    I have read in my pregnancy books and online that around this time your pelvic muscles start to spread so I'm sure its this.

    It is extremely painful when I side step a bit or get up from sitting down, but OK all other times.

    Big hugs, xxxx

    I've had something similar... but it's just the baby's head engaging I found out.

    Gosh this is an old thread!! i was 7month pg with DS when repled to this post and now he's 17months.

    I hope you're ok! It is an awful pain but it does go once you had the baby. It didn't go completely for me, but i have adapted and its not painful!!

    Good luck xx

    Ive been having this pain for a few weeks myself. It is uncomfortable when turning over in bed or getting up for the toilet in the middle of the night. I think it's because the baby is low and into position in the pelvis. Hopefully it all goes back to normal after the baby comes :)
