I feel a lot of large body parts in the front of my belly, so I think that's a good thing as far as the baby's position. During the day I often sit upright rather than reclined, but I know I'm at risk since I have an anterior placenta. I hear you, though, regarding positioning and reclining. It is definitely a good idea to do some optimal positioning exercises, though, either way, since it is so easy for the baby to move from anterior to posterior or vice versa. For now, I'm going to sleep in the recliner at least some of the time, since it is important to get good rest!
I noticed lately that you can get a "zero gravity" chair for about $60, if you're not buying a recliner because of cost. They're basically like a chez lounge (did I spell that right?). My acupuncturist uses them in her office and it seemed pretty comfortable.

Just thought I'd bump this thread to point out that lecithin from eggs seems to help a lot with SPD. You can either buy it as a supplement or just try to get more eggs in your diet.

Good to know, Devaskyla!! I am in miserable f'ing pain lately. To the point of crying at night from switching positions. I'm even cursing as I get out of bed as of late. The pubic pain is unbarable. If this baby goes over 40 weeks, I'll insist on my water being broken. Not sure how much more of this I can handle without going on bedrest

I found that my pelvic pain showed up earlier with each subsequent pregnancy. My youngest is 4 and I want another one, but have really been hesitant because the pain is so bad!!
I'm so sorry. I hope you can make it through without too much pain.
