I have really bad SPD (symphasis pubis dysfunction aka feeling like I'm being kicked in the crotch repeatedly and unable to walk more than 10 feet without falling over). I tried wearing a special belt that the midwives gave me but it did not help. I am basically housebound, I can't take my kids out because I am unable to walk. We tried going to the store today and I made it as far as the door (from the parking lot) and then got to sit on a bench while my family shopped because I couldn't walk anymore! Oh fun! I am in pain every second of the day and I just want it to end! I am 35 weeks 1 day so I am supposedly supposed to suffer through this for another month but I think I will be wheelchair bound if I have to wait that long. I am going to beg and plead for my midwives to strip my membranes at my 38 week appointment (February 2) and pray to God it works. With my daughter they stripped my membranes at 39 weeks and I went into labour 2.5 days later. I know its wrong, wrong, wrong but as soon as I hit 37 weeks I am going to try and get this baby out on my own. Obviously sex isn't an option because if I spread my legs even the width it takes to sit on the toilet I cry through the whole thing. I don't really know what else to try but I am going to do a little search and figure something out (but nothing to severe because I have had 2 c-sections). I never had this with my other 2 pregnancies and didn't even know it existed. I am just so wiped out and angry and exhausted (any time I open my legs a bit to much in my sleep I wake up screaming) and I want it to be over!!!!!
