Severe Pelvic girdle pain!!

I’m wondering if anyone can help. I am currently 33 weeks pregnant. I got diagnosed with PGP/SPD very early on in pregnancy as I suffer with hyper-mobility syndrome. At my last appointment with the consultant he mentioned induction but said we would talk about it when I’m a little further along. I haven’t slept well in a long time due to the pain but last night was horrendous.. I couldn’t stay on each side longer than 10 minutes due to the pain and discomfort. The pain has just got worse and worse throughout the day to the point I can barely walk or sit comfortably. I can’t stop crying the pain is so bad. I was discharged from physio at about 26 weeks pregnant as they couldn’t help me anymore. They gave me crutches and a support belt and showed me some exercises to do if I could manage them.

I have taken zapain and have tried my tens machine and hot water bottles also tried sleeping with a pregnancy pillow but nothing is easing the pain. I don’t want to go to A&E as they can’t help me. I’m so miserable and I can’t bare this anymore. I really don’t know what to do. I dread going to bed as the pain gets so much worse and I know I’m not going to get any sleep. Has anyone got any advice please?

Thank You

I too have SPd it’s so painful to even walk sometimes . When I’ve mentioned it to the consultants they just told me unfortunately it will just get worse 😳😔 . I’ve found luke warm baths have helped ease it a little bit for me sometimes . All the best for the rest of your pregnancy xx
