<p>My DS was 9lbs 10oz and 22 in long and he was born at 38 wks +3 days.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and I have been having extreme pressure in my pelvic floor region for about 4 weeks. But in the last 2 weeks I have been having aches in my pubic bone, hips, butt, and back.  My back pops really hard sometimes.  I can not walk or stand more than 5 minutes without that pain coming.  Its hard for me to get out of sitting positions and rolling over in bed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The doc pressed on my pubic bone and she said there is a gap and she suspects I have SPD.  She said I am measuring big and she wants me to have another Ultrasound at 29 weeks to check my cervical length and size of baby.  She also stated that I need to see a PT, so that I can get realigned and possible get a brace/support belt.  Oh and she said she will get me a temp. disabled person place card until my due date.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can not afford a PT/Chiropractor at all...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Does anyone know of ways to cope with SPD?....exercises, support belts, heat or cold packs....etc </p>

<p>The book Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year has lots of info and exercises that help. I'd say though you need a new dr as well.</p>

<p>I would ask around some chiropractors are great with payment plans and lesser fees (I had one who let me pay $15 a visit back when I had DS)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Only advice, get an exercise ball and only sit on that, not chairs. They help keep you sitting straight and in alignment. That helped me a ton after DS and prior to that after a car accident.</p>
