hi girls just looking for a bit of advice. this is my 2nd preganancy and in the first i suffered from SPD and received physio for it. managed ok and had a normal birth thank god. i am 32 weeks nearly and over the last two days i am in agony with the SPD. i can barely walk or stand and as i have a very active three year old this is getting very difficult. just wondering what would you do? would feel rather silly going to the emergency room just for this as i know the baby is perfectly ok for now its just me thats falling apart :o0 :o0 but then again going to my GP what can she really do for me? (also had a little bit of a bleed two weeks ago which turned out to be ok just makes me worry more though) sorry for the long post just in agony here :-8

You poor thing!! I'm with the hospital physio at the mo for SPD and I don't have a 3year old to look after. I would defo ring the Midwife now and have a chat with her and see what she thinks. She might be able to get you into the physio quicker if you ring first. Have ya taken some paracetomol?

Would you just go privately to physio? I went to Mt Carmel for physio - even though I had my baby in Holles St. There was no waiting time and cost about €50.
