Those with SPD...

I have, what I feel like, is the WORST case of SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction), and every step I take or move I make is extremely painful. 

Had a dr's appointment today and currently 3cm dilated, and my cervix is now "nice and soft" (I was 80% effaced at my appointment last week). The doc said to take some long walks to see if that progresses the cervix to dilate, but I feel like the walks is what makes my SPD worse. My husband and I walked to get breakfast yesterday, which is a total of a mile to and from my house, and my pubic bone was killing me the entire rest of the day.

Does walking for you make it worse as well? I am just wondering if walking makes it worse, or actually helps things for you. 

Thoughts?

    I try to multiple short walks. I rest laying down afterwards. Baths help.

    Walking for a while then sitting/laying down right after for a while makes it worse for me. The transitions between being active and inactive are what get me. Oddly enough I found icing the bone to be quite helpful so maybe you could try that if you haven't already. Good luck!
