Help with SPD in my Twin Pregnancy

by Jodie

Needing some advice on what I believe to be SPD. I have been having continuous pain, tingling, and tightness (I can't really define it) from my pubic line down to just below my groin, and across my lower back and bottom.

I'm not exaggerating when I say I can hardly walk, and even then I have to walk like I'm 90 years old.
I've had this for 4 days now and nothing has given me relief (panadol/tylenol, warm baths, massages, rest)
Has anyone else suffered from this? What was recommended? I'm only 25 weeks and have 2 toddlers to look after as well.

Thanks

I know how u feel!

Wow what you are describing is exactly how I feel! I am 27 wks with twins & can hardly put into words how excruciating the pain is in my lower back, groin, pelvis, upper legs, that entire region really! It's especially hard at night when I have to get up to the loo or roll over. I have no idea how much more I can take, and I also have 3 toddlers to chase after too. I know that using a heat-pack has actually made it worse, because it seems to soften my muscles/ligaments even more causing extra pain!
Having a warm but refreshing shower always helps though. I have to force myself to have a shower twice or even 3 times a day just cos I know I feel so much better afterwards.
For a while there I seemed to have gotten a lot of relief from crouching on all fours with my bum in the air, taking the pressure off my groin. But lately I can't seem to sit/lay in any position for too long without feeling this throbbing agonizing pain!
I wish I could give you productive advice, but I'm still going through it myself and would love to know the same thing! How the heck do ya get through this lol
Perseverance I guess and just being positive. It's not like we have a choice to switch an OFF button lol
Hope your pregnancy goes smoothly otherwise and passes by quickly! Remember you are not alone.
Good luck :)
