This is my 4th pregnancy.
(1st Boy 😊)
Im getting pretty intense Braxton Hicks and they take quite a while to settle down...is this fairly normal? Also have nasty pubic symphosis which I had in my third. Is it all because im 38? We plan on having a 5th and i can only imagine the aches and pains I will get then 😄

Welcome and congratulations! I think the braxton hicks can be very normal. As long as they aren't painful, I think you're ok. It might be a good idea to mention it at your next appointment.
SPD is horrible. I have it this time too. I also had it with my last pregnancy, which was twins, and my physio said that if you get it, you are more likely to have in in subsequent pregnancies. In fact, she said it's rare not to. It's not age related at all, it is because of hormones relaxing the pelvic girdle. I got it this time much earlier than last time, sorry to say. I guess the good news is that you know what to do if you get it next time.

Thank you @TheBoss ☺
I guess it just goes to show every baby is different. Apparently water exercises are good for relieving SPD but i never seem to find the time. All up we have 5 girls at home and we both work in the community health sector so it feels like my life is made of reminders and post it notes 😊
