    I had they go through what you shouldn't be doing with your legs, They also will go through labour positions which are better for you with spd. They will give you an explaination why you have it and give you a sheet which tells you about it and what not to do. Well thats what mine did lol x

    ^^WSS :lol:

    I went on wednesday. She examined me and showed me exercises to do. I got given a support tubigrip thing to wear which lifts up your bump and realigns pelvis/back.

    I found it useful, though tbh I had been doing most of the things she recommended anyway. The not sleeping at night problem is the worst part of all this for me but I have managed to find a way that helps with lots of cushions/pillows.

    I had a consultation with a physio for my arthritis but my hospital did a womans health physio. There were 3 of us at varying stages of pregnancy. The physio went through how to move probably and gave me tips on want to do and not to do and she fitted me with a support belt. xxx
