Hello this is my first pregnancy I am nearly 13 weeks :) I have gone back to work after having 6 weeks off for the summer holidays and I'm getting a odd pain when I put much weight on my right foot but the pain is by my hip, when do people start wearing support bands and what do they use it for? I'm very new to all this and its nice to ask people who know and been through this before.

Hi, support bands are for just that, to support the growing bump, lower back and hip areas, kind of like a tubigrip on a sprain - it just firms everything up while your active and can ease back / hip pain.
I have been using one as I suffer from early SPD and they are effective and can be worn when ever you feel you need that bit of support, as they are a snug fit they aren't noticeable under clothes etc so the choice is yours, try it and see if it helps x
