    I had SPD with my last child so have been waiting for it to come again with this pregnancy and in the last few weeks i think its started again, some days worse than other...today being a bad day. We had to move house about 3mnths ago so have been waiting for two paces to come available at the nearest school but so far nothing, i cant see how we aree ever going to have two places in two different year groups at the same time available for them to transfer and i cant let just one transfer untill another place comes up because i cant be in two places at once to drop them both off at the same time lol!!!
    Anyway my problem is the kids school is a good 25 min walk away and im starting to find it really difficult to walk some days. Its a nice walk actually but a bit up and down with hills etc and by the time i get back from the 50min round walk my hips and back and often my belly is hurting. I can struggle on at the moment but im really worried because im only 6mnths gone so im guessing this is only going to get worse so i dont know what im going to do if it does. I obviously dont drive and thank god my husband is usually home to do either the morning or the afternoon run in the car so i only have to do it once a day (but he may be losinng his job soon and the job hes applied for incase he does i would have to go up to the school twice a day EEEKK!!) so does anyone know if theres any help i can get either through the school or the social? Theres no bus routes from here to there either and i dont have any friends at the school i can ask to do it for me and my family dont live where i do so i feel really stuck. :cry:

    Hey Honey

    When my sister was miles away from the school the social managed to sort out taxi's to get them to school everyday.

    It might be worth giving DWP a call and see if it's them that offer this, i will check with my sister where she arranged it.

    Also it may be worth talking to the school and seeing if they have a group walking scheme this is where a few adults escort kids to and from school :)

    Thanks, i dont think anyone else comes from round by me because we moved too far away from the school now for a walking group to take them. I will phone DWP and see if they know anything. Thanks again. x

    I don't do a school run but I was diagnosed with SPD a few weeks ago so just wanted to say i totally understand the pain!
    Hope you can get some sort of help with the school runs soon :)
