I'm 28 weeks and was diagnosed with severe SPD last week. I've been in agony for probably 2 weeks now, and trying to carry on about my job and taking care of everything else at home. I work outside and am very active at work - and its been 100 degrees plus everyday this past week. I'm exhausted! My husband would help if he could, but he is overseas for business for another 4 weeks. Anyways, I'm mostly just whining, but I really do hurt! My doctor didn't seem to take me all that seriously, even though she diagnosed me with SPD. Her basic thing was to just keep active and rest if it got to be too painful, well that's all fine and good, but this is more painful than when I shattered my ankle! I know it's late in my pregnancy, but has anyone had a doctor take them seriously with SPD? Would it be too late to try another doctor? I just am at a loss as to what to do, and I can't quit working until at least the end of this month, though I had planned to go until 38 weeks.
