Alright I need any and all tips/tricks/ideas, etc. with my first I didn't have this issue at all (thank god!!) but with this little bean I'm having the worst pelvic pain, I talked to my midwife and she said it's totally normal do yoga and that's really all she gave me it literally feels like it's seperating from my body and it hurts to walk, change positions, touch, even just sitting/standing not doing anything. I've been doing yoga, with very little to no relief. Any other ideas?

How do you sleep? And can you see a chiropractor by chance? I get that feeling when I am on my period. It feels like a 50 pound weight is hanging from my pubic bone and KILLS.

Try sleeping with a pillow between your knees and one under your arm while laying on your side. This helps keep you aligned. Maybe a warm bath with some relaxing oil that smell good would help relax you. Wear good shoes with good support, maybe some shoe insoles too. Try to take breaks often when standing. Maybe even try one of those belly support bands to help with the weight. It might be the position baby like to sit in. Sorry thats all I have

A 50lb weight sounds like a good description, that really sucks that you have that happen every period! I sleep on my right or left side, pillow between my knees every night. I'll be getting a support band here in a couple days, and definitely going to give the chiropractor a try! I don't *think* it's the baby, but he does tend to hang out very low so it's possible. Thank you for the ideas! I'm definitely going to be trying them over the next few days and see if any of them help!

This sounds exactly like what I'm going through! >.< makes me want to cry that there's no simple solution if it does end up being that. Thank you for posting this!! I think I'll test out the stuff they have for making it manageable and try talking to my dr again.

Yes it sucks, its usually about 2 days of each period. I have explained it to many people and very few understand what I am talking about, I just assumed everyone felt that way. Guess Im lucky???

I had SPD with my last pregnancy. My OBGYN sent me to physical therapy, who basically gave me a ton of exercises to make my kegel muscles stronger. Supposedly if your muscles are stronger they pick up the slack of your relaxing ligaments that let the bones do things they shouldn't and cause you pain. I didn't think I did it long enough to make a different. There is also a belt you can wear around your hips to help stabilize things and that helped.

I feel your pain LITTERALLY!

this is my 4th pregnancy too. Never had this with my girls. I honestly think for me, it's that I'm carrying so low. I'm having a boy this time and I already have about 10 stretch marks on my lower belly (around my hair line). I got stretch marks on my hips with the girls...

I have an apt tomorrow with the doctor so I will let you know what they say to me!

Advice depends on what type of pain it is. I started having SPD at 16 weeks with this baby but later in pregnancy with my last 2. I'm not sure from your description if this is what you could have or whether you mean pelvic pain as in pain in your abdomen?

I hate the pain I get from walking, it feels like a disability

I had that with my last baby and it was awful. I feel for you! I would sit at night with a hot water bottle between my legs. That helped some but nothing ever truly took the pain away. I tried a chiropractor that didn't help.

ETA I only had it with my boys!!
