    So I went to the doctors today and it turns out I have a chest infection and the beginning of SPD...

    Does anyone else suffer or has suffered from this?

    I'm not sure. All I know is its inflammation of the pelvis.

    I'm hoping some of the other ladies can shed some light on it for me.

    Yes i have it again worse this time though. Its when your ligaments in your pelvis relax too much, your pelvic bone goes out of line causing pain and discomfort, everyone has different levels of pain with it but it gets worse as baby gets bigger. You get pain when walking, turning over in bed mostly. Wearing a support belt helps and cutting down on walking can help, if it gets bad you will be sent to see a physio to help. It can get rather painful as you get bigger but for most people it dissapears once babies born
    Hope this helps x

    Oh well dont think ill bother with it then. I take it physio doesnt help much either? I could go but its such a hassle getting to hospital for it as i dont drive. I just put up with it last pregnancy but ive gotten it earlier this time so dreading later stages, hope you find something that helps let me know if you do xx

    I have this I think but my pain is in my left buttock. It kills. It can be a sharp pain when walking or turning or last night a constant painful ache :( I'm going to raise it with my doctor.
