For anyone that has ever suffered from Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), you will know it is one of the most excruciating pains you can have, for me I used to wake up in the morning and hardly be able to move my pelvis, let alone walk to the loo. Every morning for the first hour until I had stretched my joints the pain would make me cry! Every single step would feel like a marathon, especially going down the stairs, then as the day went on it would ease, but if I sat down for longer than a few minutes or didn't keep moving then it would be back. Then as we came to the end of the day the pain would start again - if I did any serious exercise or even walked round the shops then I would pay for it - which looking back on it did not help my motivation to stay fit.
Sometimes you just put up with things as you presume that nothing can be done - in my case I am pretty sure that the fact I put 4 stone on ( yes went from a size 6 to a size 12 in a few months) was the reason my pelvis was hurting, I'm sure that extra weight did not help. I said to myself that my baby was very hungry, it wasn't my fault I ate a lot! I took no responsibility for my new bad habit. I have to say it took awhile to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight so in hindsight I wish I had been more controlled with my diet! However, you live and learn, so while I was chocolate than was necessary, I just put up with the pain. I sort of felt a bit guilty about all the food I had eaten and decided it really was my own fault, so therefore nothing to be done, a bit like a hangover I guess, this more of a foodover.
Then I talked to my Midwife, I found out this pain has a name SPD and there were things that could be done. I eventually got a physio appointment and then a supportive girdle which helped but to be quite honest was a little too late really. If only I had known this early on, seen a medic who would have said you don't need to eat 2 portions at every meal....
So for any of you expectant Mum's out there with pain, you don't need to suffer - either talk to your Midwife and get referred which will be your cheapest option - or we have a new product which, I won't lie it looks a little weird, I have no doubt if you are suffering like I did then you seriously will not give a monkeys about how it looks - apparently it is amazing. The V sling! Da da ....
