SPD advice please??
I have been diagnosed as having SPD this morning, didn't come as much of a surprise really considering the amount of pain i've been in and its a relief to know i've got a reason i can barely walk so hubby knows i'm not just making the whole thing up! I was also suffering from alot of groin bump pain and was worried this was a problem with the baby ad never realised the two were linked.
Anyway, i've been given a support belt and bandage thingy, and some excesises to do and other advice by the phisio this morning (who was fab!) and have to go back next week to see how i'm getting on but she thinks i'll be on crutches.
I'm only 23 weeks and not very big yet so i know its only gonna get worse, so just wanted some advice from you lovely ladies out there as i know there are alot of other SPD sufferers on here! I'm self employed and was planning to start maternity leave in june anyway and wind my business down, but i'm just panicing a bit now it might need to be before then as working does make it so much worse. When did you all manage to work until, and were there any benefits available to you if you stopped early??
Also do you have any tips on how to keep mobile or is doing nothing really the only way? (she told me i'm not to walk or stand at all, not even doing to washing up!) i was originally going to start pregnancy yoga and aqua aerobics but will these make it worse?
thanks and any advice at all would be much appreciated...xx
