@birdie724:  I hear you! I am only 28w but I was diagnosed with SPD a few weeks ago – pretty early on. I was told to not exercise and to rest whenever I felt I needed to – which is hard when I am also a “doer” but so far it has been managable by just really cutting back what I do in any given day. Weekdays are pretty much just work and then rest but it’s better than being in pain, and doing too much can exaggerage the pain so take it easy!

I hope yours goes away right after birth – and mine too lol.My Dr. said it almost always does, as soon as you deliver and your body stops producing relaxin, which is the hormone being released and loosening the pelvic muscles. After that they should tighten back up and not be a problem. Fingers crossed! You are almost there – good luck!

@birdie724:  It’s more recently referred to as pelvic girdle pain or PGP.  I think some conditions that mainly affect women are ignored because they are seen as “women’s issues.”  For some doctors if you cna’t give the patient a pill to make the pain go away, they don’t know what else to do for you.  Maybe try to see a midwife or certified prenatal massage therapist to see if they have a holistic approach to dealing with your pain?
