This is my third pregnancy with it and Im 36+ weeks preg with #7. What I have found is this- normally the prescription is to bind. Getting a pregnancy binder or the sort.
What I will SAY from personal experience is that the binder makes it WORSE for me. When I really started having pains this time, my midwife reminded me of the binder and I found it and strapped it on for an hour or so. But then I had to take it off to go out and it was SO excrucatingly painful I ended up going to a chiropractor across the street from my husband's work and bursting into tears in their lobby trying to explain what I was in for. It had taken me 10 minutes to even get into my landcruiser to drive and every time I lifted my foot to press on the brake or gas it was painful.
From reading I found that, if you BIND and truly have an offset pubic bone- it can compress it making it worse. The best thing to do is to have an adjustment and THEN bind. From reading I also found that the best technique to look for to help this issue is the Webster Technique. I haven't found anyone who does it near me yet, but it's supposed to be especially helpful.
Since my PB is so over stretched- baby has a LOT more room to descend and guess where he's been hanging out for the last few weeks? Yup RIGHT on my cervix. So I was calling the midwives in pain again last friday gasping every few seconds as he would JAM his head into my cervix because he's so engaged into my pelvis.
I project this will be a fast birth.
Also, research birthing positions that you should AVOID. There are things you can do that make it worse. Make sure you keep your knees together as you get in and out of bed also. This helps a lot. GOOD LUCK!!!!
