    Oh my god ladies I am in so much pain!!! Had mw this morning and they poked and prodded me (trainee there as well). They measured me way ahead at 36cm even though I had the growth scan yesterday which shows baby to be smaller than average. MW thinks I have got alot of fluid there now. Trainee and mw struggled to find a hb so pushed and poked baby to move him about even though I kept saying how sore it was making me with my SPD and arthritis. I ended up in tears, Jase was fuming when I came out.

    Also have blood and protien in my urine so am unsure if theres a infection there too. God I am in so much pain. :cry:

    Sympathy from me, I had some hip pain for a few weeks, luckily it turned out to not be SPD and went away but it was really horrible. All I can suggest is if there's a comfy position for you then just stay in it, don't over do anything! xxx

    Aw hun, sorry you've had a crappy day.

    It's so difficult to get relief from SPD because even resting does not help it.

    Have yourself a big bar of chocolate tonight and a bath to cheer yourself up xxx

    Thanks ladies. Had a bit of a cry after the SIL just told me I am pregnant not ill for gods sake!! I wanted to scream at her actually I am both. I have suffered with the arthritis for 3 1/2yrs before this pain!! But I am gonna make dinner and then when Jase comes home gonna rest a bit more. I just feel guilty when Dylan and Jase run around after me. x

    I have the dreaded crutches too but am struggling with them as it makes my arms and wrists really hurt with the arthritis.

    No had to give up because of the combination of SPD and not being able to take my meds for arthritis making it tons worse. I am lucky in that respect. I don't know how you are doing it hun. We have had to make terrible cuts due to losing my income which then makes me feel so guilty!!

    Honestly all I feel is guilt! lol

    dont feel guilty at all!! its not like you chose for this to happen. Is it your first?? If i stopped we would just be too short of money as my OH is self employed and January wasnt a great month for him.

    Not long now, it will all be worth it, i just keep thinking of lovely little baby in there and it makes me feel better :)
