Answer: Pubic bone pain in pregnancy is fairly common. A condition known as symphysis pubis diastasis (SPD) often causes this pain. Usually in later pregnancy, the hormone relaxin causes the pelvis, particularly at the pubic bone, to loosen. In general, this is a good thing as it makes birth easier for mom and baby. However, sometimes the separation is exaggerated and can become quite painful for the mother at the end of pregnancy or in the early postpartum period. For some women, certain movements can be painful. In particular, getting out of bed, getting into the bathtub or car, putting on pants, sitting for long stretches, or performing repetitive tasks are signs that u may be experiencing pain. Stabilize your pelvis as much as you can via a pregnancy/maternity binder, like the Prenatal Cradle. A flexible belt or binder works better than a rigid one. This can also help you prevent further injury from having a less stable pelvis. This may help in the long term. While it may be time intensive, many say it's worth it. You could also ask for advice on what you could do at home, to decrease your visits to the office. Avoid situations that cause pain. For example, sit down to put pants on, or sit on the side of the tub and swing over both legs together. It is best to avoid standing for long periods of time. If you must stand, wear sensible shoes and try to move around, even if this means you simply shift from foot to foot every so often. You can also use a small stool or box to prop a foot up as you stand. Heat can be a source of pain relief. Use a rice sock or hot water bottle to help provide moist heat to your pelvis. This is perfectly safe and does not involve medications. It can also be done multiple times a day. Certain forms of exercise can help. Ask your doctor . The buoyancy involved in swimming, for example, can provide pain relief.

Question: As per my LMP, my EDD is on 21st nov 2018 and as per my 7th month growth scan it is 31st oct 2018. As per my LMP right now am 34 weeks and 2 days and as per the 7th month growth scan already it was 34 weeks. There is a confusion about my EDD. Please help me
Answer: It's very common, and no it's not a problem. The LMP date assumes that you ovulate exactly 14 days after the start of your last period (your LMP), but a lot of women don't ovulate at day 14. Some ovulate as early as day 9 or 10 or before (more likely if your cycles are shorter than 28 days) and some don't ovulate until day 21 or later (more likely if you have longer cycles). Additionally, the same women can ovulate on different days in different months. If you have a scan during the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy, they are usually very accurate in determining the age of the fetus - my doctor said +/- 3 days. If your scan date differs from your LMP, it's likely the scan date is correct and you didn't ovulate at exactly day 14. That's completely normal, and the only thing that becomes important then is that they adjust your due date.
