Are you experiencing Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction?
Here is some info to help you prepare for birth.
Rather than rewrite good information, I recommend this link on Pubic Pain The article covers everything from what it is, what you can do during pregnancy and in regards to birth, the article goes into detail with the following:
Planning for Birth
SPD is not to be taken lightly, and anyone who has experienced it knows how it can effect your enjoyment of your pregnancy and how it can inhibit your birth. I have been told by a woman who experienced SPD that the contractions were nothing, it was the feeling that her pelvis might explode that was unbearable.
Understanding SPD before labour starts, and preparing for your birth accordingly, will help you reduce the effects of SPD during birth. Your birth map is written by you when you are rational and calm, this way when you are occupied with labour (and vulnerable, uncomfortable) this becomes the go to document. It helps you (and your supporters) to focus and remember your techniques, it provides your carers with clear instructions for your decisions. Your birth map contains your informed decisions for various scenarios.
