Ladies who have or have had SPD during past pregnancies, how are you feeling now?
The pain is getting worse for me and I can sense the change in my gait - I am waddling even though I don't have much belly weight to warrant that yet. Sitting flat on the floor for a few minutes triggers it bad for me and I invariably have bad pain that night and the next day. Also the pain is fluctuating on a day to day basis, like it would hurt a lot one day and the next day I'd feel ok. Kind o how my nausea is these days...I think the hormones are to blame of course. But still overall it is getting worse the further along I get in this pregnancy.

I looked up some chiropractors in my area and none of them have any reviews I looked at their websites and picked the one I felt most comfortable with - a woman. I emailed her describing my condition and asking if she had experience treating pregnant women. Hopefully, if she responds, I will be setting up an appointment next week.

I had this with my first 2 pregnancies. Totally sucks.
Had tiny episodes so far ... Mostly while sitting legs crossed at work ( which is a big no-no).

I'm dreading the day it kicks in for good....

I had it badly with my #2 and #3. This time it's not constant and not nearly as severe. I really hope the chiropractor can treat you because it made a world of difference for me with my last pregnancy! I also found that going for a swim or soaking in a deep tub helps a lot! Good luck lady!!!

oh no, I'm sorry you have that. How super uncomfortable. I had it really bad AFTER one of my births (that'll happen sometimes when you give birth to a 9 lbs 11 oz baby with a giant GD head!). Sometimes I would forget and pull a chair in with my foot - YOW. I think because of that birth my pubic bone is weakened so it does hurt sometimes when I lay on my side for a while and then get up. It's like I can feel it shift. But it's not bad right now at all (yet - hopefully it will stay this way). I'd mention it to your OB and see if they have any suggestions as I know it can be very painful.

I'm dealing with it, I've been meaning to go to the chiropractor, but the only one around here is a male, and the thought makes me so uncomfortable that I keep putting it off.
I've been noticing and avoiding triggers. There are days I can't avoid them and it gets really bad, but some days it's okay.

I've got the waddle going on already, too. I am mostly pretty comfortable but if I stand for long periods of time or walk too much, I get that deep ache in my pelvis.

I also have to have my husband help me lift my hips off of the floor when laying on my back to stretch because it sends shooting pains through my entire pelvis if I do it myself.
