Nevermind! Went to the doctor... it IS SPD.<br><br>
So all she was able to say was rest as much as I can and get into a chiropractor.<br><br>
Plus side is she said she will give me a doctors note to take to the airports to have them push me around in a wheelchair lol

I'm experiencing the beginnings of pubis symphasis disorder (SPD) pain again. I had it with my 2nd son but not until I was 30 weeks or so and I'm only 19 weeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm hoping to nip this in the bud before it gets worse. I saw my chiro at 17 weeks and he did some of the treatments in this article. helped tons!! i have felt so much better since the last adjustment. i feel like my hips are more "stable" if that makes sense & less pubic pain. ill be in bi-weekly.<br><br><br>
Here's a great site with lots of info:<br><br><a href="http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/pubicpain.htm" target="_blank">http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/pubicpain.htm</a><br><br>
It sounds like chiropractic care can really help & is the best route for treatment.best wishes!

I have dealt with this with most of my pg's. Last pg it started in right away. Thank God this time it has held off and only the last few wks have been hard. There's a really great book that has some exercises that help tons : "Relieving pelvic pain during and after pregnancy : how women can heal chronic pelvic instability" / Cecile C.M. Rost ; with contributions from Christine Buttinger. Check your local library.

Going to the chiro helped a ton... he used webster technique on me to straighten my pelvis back out and while i am still in pain its nowhere near as bad as it was before I went!
