I've had it from about 16 weeks, unfortunately your likely to get it again, earlier and worse in subsequent pregnancies. I've attended physiotherapy, on bad days I wear a maternity support tube around my tummy/hips which immediately gives me some relief. You can get maternity support belts/bands which have mixed reviews- I got mine for free from physio it's made out of the same material as the stuff they give for arm/leg supports. Kegals (pelvic floor excercised) are meant to strengthen pelvic floor and could help with pain. I was also given other lower abdominal excercises (I've been bad and haven't been keeping up with them that could help. Other things you can do to help includes getting out of the bath sitting in its edge (rather than stepping out with each leg as this can make the pelvic area tense back up after relaxing it). Using pillows in between legs whilst sleeping might help at night. Any position for sleeping feels uncomfortable for me as side of hips hurt even if the symphysis pubis doesn't
