What do you do from day to day to make pubic symphysis get better?

Unfortunately I didn't find much that ended the pain. I don't think that's possible. But there were little things that would make it a tad bit better. Like a hot rice pack between my legs (I just grabbed an old sock, threw some rice in it and microwaved it). Also, staying off of your back helps. Keep your legs as close together as possible when you're moving around, for example when you get out of bed, don't swing one leg off. Move both legs to the side, then stand. Same with your clothes. Don't put anything on one leg at a time. Sit on a chair or the bed, put both legs through, then stand (You'll only learn that the hard way one time, I promise). Pretty much pretend that there is a rope tied around your legs, or you're wearing a tight pencil skirt. Sitting on a birth ball will help alleviate some pressure when sitting. Kegels will help strengthen your pelvis muscles from the get go, so it may help it not get too bad.

      A woman in my birth class had this, and she was unable to practice a lot of the birth pain techniques that we practiced. Sorry this was so difficult!
