Thread: I just can't cope anymore :(

    You poor love Danni - I found hot water bottles helped quite a bit, but I wasn't in as much pain as you are. I really hope the physio sorts everything out, or that it's just Junior lying in the wrong place and he moves very soon for you.

    Take care of yourself and take things very easy - and maybe invest in a po.

    Hey Danni,

    I had bad sciata pain for like 4 weeks (it magically went away after i went to the physio), but the advice above is pretty good - especially about sleeping with a pillow between your knees.

    If you are looking into private physio, i can recommend a great lady in Caulfield. She specially does pregnant women, whereas a lot of other physios aren't so up on everything that can be done as they mainly do sport injuries. Anyway, i only had o go once, and it was $60 i think.

    PM me if you want me to find the number for you.

    Good luck, and i hope you feel better soon

    Hi Danni,

    I am so sorry to hear you are in so much pain. My cousin had SPD (not sure if you have this or not) and saw a very good chiro in Werribee, but I'm not sure how pricey it was. I can ask her if you like.

    Usually the physio at the hospital is not nearly as expensive as a normal/private physio - at least thats the case at my hospital - I hope it is for you too and you get some relief.

    Thank you all so much for your replies!

    I definitely sleep with a pillow between my legs all the time, and last night I swapped it for the body pillow...so Ill see how I go today.

    The physio at the hospital will be free of charge which is my biggest concern as I am no longer working, and am not financial at all

    My doc suggested seeing as osteopath, but it was only a suggestion, not a cure, and at $60 a pop, I cant see myself doing that

    I was supposed to start aqua natal classes again last night, but I was in too much pain to get in the car, and was scared the water wouldnt make it better. But i promise to go next week, and try and get down to the local pool atleast once a week too.

    Will keep you posted when I hear from the physio. Thanks so much for caring guys xx

    Are you on medication danni? My back pain (from car accident injury) got so bad I accepted panadeine forte which is okay to take as directed.

    No, the Ob said pain relief probably wont work-- which is what I have read about SPD too..

    Ok im going to call the physio now, as they havent called me back yet. so much for "urgent"

    Danni,

    I have just found your post. I had it with Amy but not as bad as you. I contacted the Pelvic Instability Support Group in Victoria and they were great. They sent lots of information and they have regular meetings (not that you are probably interested). As painful as it is, it went away instantly when Amy was born so hang in there.

    Dan I have a couple of friends who have had SPD and the one thing I do know is that they were both advised to back off on the swimming and extra exercise (apparently you can do more damage to yourself if you push it). So while I haven't had SPD and I imagine it must suck severely you have gotta stay put and rest up. Here's hoping you get some relief......

    The best thing I have found is to keep your legs together (someone should have told me this 9 months ago!! lol)
    But seriously... you don't realise how much you open your legs to do silly little things like get out of bed... retrain yourself to keep your knees together when getting out of bed and out of the car for example. It has actually helped me immensely
