    I've just got back from the Drs...

    I have had a lot of pains in my back, hips, groin and pelvis the past few days and it got to the point the other night where I couldn't get up from my sister's sofa as it was so painful. I was hoping it wouldn't be SPD but it seems I *may* have it. She tugged my legs around and they felt ok.. until I left the surgery. We popped to Sainsburys and now I'm in pain again all around my back, hips and groin. :(

    I've been referred for physio so need to await an appointment now.

    I also asked about my BIG issue with acid reflux as I barely slept last night because of it and had a horrible evening too - unfortunately, as nothing is *really* safe in pregnancy, I can't have anything for it. I did get a huge bottle of gaviscon though that I didn't have to pay for this time. One saving grace I guess... :?

    Oh hun, hope it eases a bit soon. have some of these :hug: :hug: :hug:

    Gaviscon is great for acid I think. I suffer with it quite badly and find gaviscon generally does the trick. By the time the baby gets here I'm like a alchi, swigging it out of the bottle!!

    I swig from the bottle too, however, Gaviscon doesn't do anything for me when it's actual acid reflux that I have. It works with heartburn, but not reflux :(

    It really gets me down and I lose a lot of sleep on the nights I suffer. I'm at the point where I am scared to even eat toast incase it sets it off. It used to be any heavy meals, spicy or rich foods etc... now it's anything! I was warned it might get bad in pregnancy though so I was (kind of) prepared.

    Gimme heartburn over acid reflux any day :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Oh, and now SPD too. Wahoo! :shock:

    I think she was pointing out that they haven't been tested so according to the little books they use the drugs cannot be ruled as entirely safe for pregnant women.

    I'd rather not risk it if there is a chance it'd be harmful BUT if it gets worse I will speak to the MW when I see her next.
