    my midwife has just left and my BP is down to 138/88. I'd given myself a deadline of 1st december before applying for my maternity leave and I was just filling in the forms when she arrived :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I had my first 'official' physio appointment yesterday, after sneaking along with mum to hers for a while. Mums physio thought I had arthritis so I've been doing all the exercises for that, but the physio I saw yesterday was an obstetric specialist and thinks it's a combination of arthiritis and SPD, so all the exercises I've been doing have made it worse :shock: .

    I'm now trussed up like a turkey with support belts, going to the loo on crutches, and sleeping on a slippy sleeping bag, but after just one night I'm not tensed up with pain :D and my BP is acceptable :D :D .

    If anyone else is suffering with hip pains, push your midwife for physio - my appointment took ages to come through but I'm hoping I can start to enjoy this pregnancy at last - I can worry about the other problems when I go into theatre.

    Hi Tracy

    Good news about your bp at last. yippee

    the hardest thing is, is that they tell you to try not to worry about your bp, but you cant help but worry and this sometimes pushes it up.

    but brilliant news hun
