I am 24 weeks today and just bought a belly band off of amazon. I work in a school and am on my feet for most of the day. On monday i had to go home early cause was I was so uncomfortable. Now that i have one, i cant imagine going through the day without it! it just feels like extra support and im in much less pain by the end of the day.
this is the one i got: [link]
I had SI pain, then sciatica pain and now just lower back pain in general. I started wearing my belt at 12 ish weeks when I wasn't even showing. I bought this one from Amazon AZMED Maternity Belt, Breathable Abdominal Binder, Back Support, One Size, Beige [link]
(Sorry I'm on mobile).
My pain never disappear but it felt way worse when I skipped a day of wearing it so I recommend it.
I got this one on Amazon. It had the highest and most ratings, and it’s not as huge as the other styles.
It’s conveniently kept my leggings up all day so they stopped sliding under my bump.
I am so sorry that you’re suffering from pgp. I did an online yoga therapy session with my friend who went over a bunch of exercises that can help stabilizing and strengthening your pelvis which has helped me tremendously (but it took about 2-3 weeks of everyday exercises to feel result). I also went to my first chiropractor appointment last week (thank goodness she is seeing clients face to face). I had excruciating pain when rolling over in bed and after my first session the pain reduced with 10-15 percent.
Icing where you feel pain for 5-10 minutes 3-5 times/day might help relieve any swelling.
Have you tried a pregnancy belt? I bought this one from amazon and has helped a little bit - but I know some people feel relief from using one! [link]
I had a couple of weeks of this (around was 34-35) and then one of my midwives suggested getting a support belt. I ended up with this one [link] from Amazon. It’s important to get something really supportive and not just a stretchy band. I’ve worn this for just a few hours during the day and when I’m on my feet a lot. Now I’m pretty much pain free (37w3d). Saved me from having to go to PT and got me back to my Expecting and Empowered workouts and yoga.
I hear you on the new feelings - that's why I was in denial for like 2 months before I bought a band, I figured this new pain was just part of the package. It also helped with my SI joint pain from running/walking, which was a related but totally different kind of pain.
I got this one on Amazon simply because it was cheap and uncomplicated and don't have any complaints (except when my husband catches me getting dressed and I feel that much less sexy strapping this thing on).
Yes I got mine off of amazon. I’ll link the one I got
azmed maternity belt
Before this one I got another on off of amazon but I ended up returning it. It wasn’t wide enough, and it scratched my skin when I was wearing it. I had to wear it over clothes so it wouldn’t bother me. But that was difficult to hide when I wanted to wear it out.
But the azmed belt has been very awesome. I can wear it under my clothes (so on skin) and go out with it on, it’s not detectable at all. And it’s comfortable. It really provides the support for me and makes a huge difference in back pain. I wear it when I go out and I also wear it at home sometimes while cooking and cleaning. Also it’s very wide, so it provides a good surface area of support. I highly recommend.
Hope it works out for you as well. Good luck.
I work on my feet and lately I've been having really bad problems with round ligament pain. This has been helping me tremendously. Not completely, but it's making my shift a little bit more tolerable.

I bought this one about two months ago to help with my already existing back issues. I like how wide the band is, it closes with velcro in the back (wish it was in the side, or front). I wear it pretty regularly.

Yes, the heavier it gets the more I feel like I should be wearing support to help my back with the added weight.
I bought this one on Amazon awhile back when my back was killing me.
My only gripe is that the velcro is in the back. But otherwise it's been great.

Hi!! Sorry this is so late! I finally got the link to the belt yesterday! Here it is: [link]
I have no idea how great it is yet, I should get it today. But, the other pregnant lady at my PT office said she's tried out a few of the really expensive belts which were crap for her and this one is just amazing. IMO for $25 it's worth a shot.
[[link] one!). It's pretty ugly but is amazing! Once I started wearing it I could run longer without having to pee and overall I felt more comfortable.
I've been using this one from Amazon, and it's really helped with my round ligament pain. One with straps over the shoulders would provide more support, but this has been enough for me.
Protip: If you have a flex spending account (FSA), a belly support band is eligible for reimbursement. Just don't buy it with an Amazon gift card.
This is what I got. It was highly rated and has been doing a good job. Doesn't eliminate 100% of the soreness, but helps a LOT
I got this one from Amazon and I’ve been loving it!!

I am 36.5 weeks and also have a herniation in the same spot.
Buy yourself THIS maternity belt (highly reviewed on amazon). You'll thank yourself as you get bigger. I wear it every day and if I ever forget I can tell immediately in the difference in pain. Before my bump was super big I just wore it when doing a lot of walking/standing, now I wear it all the time.
I have been going to physical therapy throughout the pregnancy and that has helped a lot. My therapist is actually a prenatal/pelvic floor PT specialist, too. I have pregnancy approved excercises that I do to strengthen my back and hip muscles, which help a lot but don't get me wrong - you're in for some pain and discomfort that will likely be worse than the average pregnant person's because of your situation. My physical therapist also recommended I get this Sacroiliac joint belt as because of my herniation my pelvis is misaligned (or maybe my pelvis misaligned caused my herniation, who knows) and therefore she said I was at extra risk for SPD. Lo and behold, I started getting SPD symptoms as early as 11 weeks!
So now, I wear the SI joint belt and the maternity belly brace daily. Before the past month or so, I just wore them when I was walking/standing a lot (my husband and I refer to the combo as my 'sausage casing,' it's hilarious).
I bought this one from Amazon
AZMED Maternity Belt
I just ordered the top one on Amazon since I'd like relief as soon as I can get it.

I have both the BaoBei Support Band and this (less expensive) belt from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/AZMED-Maternity-Breathable-Abdominal-Support/dp/B0113WE0QS?ref_=ast_sto_dp
I actually find the Amazon belt is better for curbing round ligament pain and specifically seems to support the lowest part of my belly better. The BaoBei gives me better overall support (it almost seems like compression wear and really keeps everything in place) but I still get round ligament pain when running. So, I'm more inclined to wear the cheaper belt while out running and the BaoBei for just normal everyday activity (walking, cleaning, cooking, taking care of the dog). But since these things get sweaty and I sometimes slack on washing them, I do like having two and I'll grab whichever one is clean in a pinch.
I got this one. It has been great!
I got this one a few weeks ago. I haven't tried any other ones to compare, but so far this one is helping a lot with lower back pain. I wear it every day!
This is the one I have.
I was looking at that one, too! I ordered this one off Amazon: [link]
If it's not enough support, I'll return it for the one you linked. Thanks so much
I started using this around 20 weeks and it really helped my SPD
I bough this one and I'm petite it adjusted easily to my size
Get the belt!! I started wearing one at 16 weeks and it's been AMAZING. Here's the one I have. I own two. One for my bike commute and one for my run!
I have this support belt and it has helped with both my back and hips. It's also not too bulky under clothes, which is a plus.
