I have had SPD with both my pregnancies, and unfortunately the only advice I can offer is to rest. Try not to do too much walking or anything where your legs are seperated, so when going up the stairs try to go up one at a time, and get out of bed with your legs together. The best thing to do is try to get referred for physiotherapy, where they can also give you a support belt to go around your pelvis which helped me a little bit. When swimming, although the pressure is taken off your pelvis, try not to do breast stroke as your legs are apart. One last thing is when in labour, if you have a supportive midwife, try to give birth lying on your side with your legs together - do not lay on your back with your legs apart, as this can be sheer agony. I hope this helps.

Post subject: SPD
Hi - i'm 35 weeks preg and have had SPD since about 24 weeks -luckily it is only mild. Somedays it is really painful and i can not put one foot in fronf of the other and the next day i can be fine. The only thing i can advice is rest. My midwife has suggested a support belt to help support the weight of the growing baby etc. I hav'nt bothered as it has not been too bad - maybe this would be of a benefit to you though ? Also, your midwife should refer to to a physiotherapist. X
