I mentioned this briefly in another thread, but I am pretty sure I have SPD. I mentioned it to my OB a few months back, and he agreed that the symptoms I was describing sounded like it, but he didn't do any examinations to confirm or anything like that. I'm bringing it up now, because I think it's getting worse. With every step I take, it feels like I have a vaginal bruise that someone is hitting as I walk. It hurts even worse to step up into my vehicle, and rolling over at night is excruciating. I've read stories online of women who have had it so bad they've needed crutches or a wheelchair! I don't feel like I'm anywhere near that point, though someone did ask me if I hurt my foot the other day, because I am apparently walking with a bit of a limp. But walking isn't the worst part for me really - it's the night time trying to roll from one side to the next that kills me. I'm going to talk to my OB about it some more on Wed., because if this is truly what I have, I know there are certain things to be mindful of during labor. Sometimes women with this can't get an epidural, because when you are numb, you could separate your legs too far and injure yourself. Also, it sounds as though some women end up being induced early because the pain gets too bad. And then the other thing is that it sounds like with this, you shouldn't push a baby out while lying on your back (I've given birth sitting sort of upright, but at a bit of a recline, in the past).
Has anyone else dealt with this or doe sanyone have any insight into it?
