can i use a hotwater bottle for SPD
Hello, i am 6 weeks pregnant with my third child and having symptoms of SPD (symphsis pubic disorder) already. I had this with both my other pregnancies and was on crutches by 30 weeks with my last one. As i said i am already having pain this time and was wondering if it should be ok or not to use a hotwater bottle to ease the pain. I was actually getting pain before my period was late and i thought it was the start of my period so went to bed with a hotwater bottle, which really helped but now i know im pregnant i am wondering if it would be ok or not to do this again?
Any other tips people have found for coping with SPD would also be welcome. and i have also given birth whilst suffering this and found that on all fours was the best position (which i found out be researching SPD support on the internet) it worked for me anyway.
