Here's a good link describing it:
I searched the mdc forums and found really good threads on SPD but they are really old. hoping in this thread that we mamas dealing with SPD can help each other with advice and support and just fellow commiseration. From mothers who have had SPD in the past: I am specifically interested in how this affected your birth, if it did at all. I had a homebirth with mt first and it was uneventful but way more painful than I imagined and I tore pretty badly. with this pregnancy I was planning on doing lots of squatting and exercise to Insure that I was as fit and flexible as I could be for the birth, but now I am completely contained to the smallest movements and limited from even walking for too long. It hurts my pelvic area and pubic area to even go to the bathroom. I can't put my pants on without pain, get in or out of cars, lift my leg to step over something, ect. And rolling over in bed and getting out if bed are all hell!!! Soooo painful!!!! I know these are all common SPD complaints but I am freaking out about going Into labor and my body being capable --with this condition-- to birth my baby. I hate having these fears and I hate doubting my body but right now my body just feels, so, ....broken.
Hope to hear from others who know what I'm going through and we can offer each other any help/sympathy.
