I have been experiencing severe pain in my lower back and pelvic region. My doctor at first suggested I wear a pubic girdle, which I purchased, but did not alleviate the pain. I have now been diagnosed with SPD and besides the embarrassing waddle I have recently developed and the fact that I cannot spread my legs in any way without feeling a sharp pain coursing through my lower extreme legs... I'm great. Sigh. Anyone else suffering with this or have experience from a previous pregnancy? I was told that the only permanent solution is delivery. I am also wondering whether this caused anyone to deliver early, simply due to being unable to function through the pain?
