I had physio for spd. At our hospital is was an spd clinic, they gave out support belts/tubi grip which help take some of the weight off your bump and then gave you hints on how to make it less painful, ie how to get out the car, out of bed etc and basically explained how what you do during the day affects your pain in the evening/nighttime.
I hope it helps you!

Hi, I had spd last time I was pregnant and managed to get one lot of physio before baby arrived. (started at 36 weeks and had baby at 37) At the appointment they just checked where all the pain was and asked if there were any areas that were really bad and noted them down on a diagram of the body. She then talked about ways to help the pain and gave me a support belt. (was also given crutches to use)

I was given support belts and excercises to do during the day and told to move my legs together in bed and getting out of the car and things like that. Was also given Codiene for the pain as its stronger than paracetamol.
I found the whole thing a waste of time to be honest although the belts worked abit when i was out walking.
Now i'm begging for baby to arrive to get rid of the pain!!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
