Hi bigbear, my little man is nearly 5 months now, but I suffered with chronic spd during my pregnancy, so I do understand what you are going through! How old is your other lo? Do you know if it's a pink or blue one this time?

My spd went about 2 weeks after Jake was born, but it got a little better each day. I had a c section, but that wasn;t just because of the spd, I have another joint condition as well, I know lots of women who have successful deliveries with spd, the best person to speak to is your midwife or consultant if you have one. Are you having physio for the spd? If not request a refferal, because it really helps, and the physio can show you different position for labour etc, also if you could have an epidural it may help too.

Hi suzaie thanks 4 replieing again i did go and c my physio a good few months ago . she pulled me about and gave me some exercises 2 do . well with in a few hours of seeing her i was completley bed bound 4 nearly 3 days . Not able 2 move at all sceaming and crying in so much pain , i just wanted the ground 2 eat me .So u can imagine i never went back and can not do any exercise either .I really am feeling the pressure of it now have been near or nuff house bound 4 five months if i do go out 4 a hour or so then i pay 4 it . I have also been caring 4 my husbanb who had a major brain operation six months ago . Not that i am moaning because he is alive and could not imagine my life with out him .But that is another story .To tell u the truth not really had much surport from the midwifes been 2 c them on 3 differrnt occasions and never seen the same midwife . I am gonna try and get in touch with some at the hospital because i am worried about wheather i will be able 2 push her out .Just counting the days till it is all over i am feeling very low keep crying .Lying around the house is not me i like 2 be up out and about . Any way less of me moaning sweetie how r u coping with your little man ,do u have any others . thanks 4 listening speak soon x

If you do a search on the left for spd you should get lots of results of what people have advised before. I know there is one thread running in support at the moment about spd, and one in pregnacy recently about spd and sciatica, there was some good advice, and it helps to know you're not the only one feeling like this.x

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
