Tonight I was cleaning up the kids rooms (and granted, moving light furniture and such) There was a tub of outgrown clothes on the floor that I wanted to move into the closet. Rather than pick it up (it would have been heavier than anything else I'd moved), I decided to push it with my leg. Sure enough, the second I applied pressure, my pelvis POPS. It hurt! I immediately stopped and went to sit down. I felt fine after a few minutes and wasn't too concerned - went back about my evening. Loaded up the kids, went to pick up my paycheck, make a deposit and several other 'drive thru' type errands. I get home and nearly collapse at the pressure of my weight on my pelvis. I can hardly put either foot in front of me without writhing in pain. Call my midwife and she says I've pulled my pelvis. That the liklihood of it healing before I deliver is rare (it takes a long while and the added stress of the baby won't help) and that it could make labor more difficult. Oh, and I probably can't work anymore. Awesome.

Oh no, I'm so sorry. I hope she's wrong and that it will heal back up. I had SPD with my second pregnancy and it was horrible. I had a great delivery though, on all fours and everything. But the pregnancy was miserable with it.
I really hope you feel relief soon.
I have a terrible habit of pushing/kicking things around, and my pelvis and knees are already a wreck. I'll have to be more careful.
Sending healing vibes!!!!!!

Oh no! That sounds horrible. I really, really hope she's wrong and it heals quickly.
I'm so sorry! Sending you lots of healing vibes.

Ugh! That sounds awful! I guess I'll be sure to tell DH that I am NOT helping him to rearrange the furniture in our bedroom...
Hope you feel better soon!
