Pelvic pressure during pregnancy

Message length 300 characters recommended

At around 30 weeks or so I started getting really bad pain in my pelvic area. After talking to my OB, who said it was perfectly normal, she said it was SPD (Symphysis pubis dysfunction). It's pretty much when the ligaments in that area start to soften up preparing for the birth of baby. While it's common, it's not fun. At all. Some women experience it early, some later and some none at all. The best tips to combat it are to keep your legs together as much as possible. When getting out of bed, swing both legs at the same time over the bed, not one at a time. Sit down to put your pants or other clothes on.
