I had really horrible spd with my 3rd baby. It continued to get worse though the pregnancy, inspite of the fact that I was seeing my chiro 1-2 x a week toward the end. She finally threw up her hands and told me that my pain would likely resolve itself after delivery. She reminded me, once again, that lower backache is very common in pregnancy. I was telling her, I know, I've had two other pregnancies and this isn't lower backache, it's hip pain. It was to the point that I could only sleep in the recliner, as it hurt to bad to try and get out of bed or roll over, it was very painful to walk stairs, and trying to step into the vehicle to drive was difficult. Walking wasn't much fun either. When I was 40wks and no sign of baby coming, I decided to try accupuncture. The woman that I lucked into going to was also a certified Webster chiro. I figured it couldn't hurt to get adjusted as well, and between 40 wks to 42 1/2 weeks when I delivered my son (the accupuncture to induce my labor clearly didn't work), I actually had a little relief. I could tell that her adjustments were helping. It ended up taking 4 monthes pp before I was feeling mostly normal, I continued with adjustments with the Webster technique chiro, as well as doing exercises that she gave me. I was one year postpartum before I had no pain most of the time. Suddenly, when I was about 21 monthes pp, I started having the hip pain again. It felt like it had when it started in my third pregnancy (it started at about six monthes in). I took a test and sure enough, I was 4 wks pregnant. I was so scared. I thought, if the pain is starting this early, this is going to be horrible. I went into my webster chiro and she assured me that by keeping everything in line I would do much better. I went to her every few weeks and also to a massage therapist throughout that pregnancy. I also got a pregnancy pillow that I used toward the end. I got through that pregnancy with very minimal pain, nothing at all like the third. With my fifth I also went to the chiro throughout, did not do the massage therapist and didn't use the pillow (but did use a small pillow between my knees and tried to keep my pelvis in line), but practiced yoga the whole time. I had even less pain. Now I'm pregnant w/ # 6 and plan to do the same as I did w/ #5. The one thing I realized is that not all chiro's are equally skilled. My first chiro couldn't even begin to help my pain, but my second was like a miracle worker. Good luck to you, I hope you find something that works and you can keep the spd at bay this time.
