Pains...down there

Since Friday I've been having bad pains between my legs. It's not my hips or really my pubic bone, but more so the muscle down there. Does that make sense? DH and I haven't had sex since Tuesday so it's not from that, but I did have an exam Thursday. But would it still hurt 3 days later?

It hurts to walk at times and it hurts to kind of stretch my legs. I have to move real slowly when I go to stand up. Is this normal? Should I be concerned about it or is it another joy of pregnancy?

It's uncomfortable and kind of reminds me when I was having DD2 lol. She tried coming out sideways and the drs had to try and turn her straight, which she didn't (ha little determined monster!) but I remember feel a pain with how she was positioned. Don't worry, I've checked, no baby crowning ha ha! He's moving real good too so I'm not concerned about him. Any thoughts?

It could be from the exam or it could be just one of the many joys of pregnancy. I've started getting pressure and various pains too, but not really what you are describing. I hope it goes away soon.

is it in the corner like where your underware sits on the inside of your leg area... HAHA Does that make sense even??

I have been getting this really weird very sharp pain there, like not exactly my "private" but the muscle between my leg and private kinda where my underware sits it feels like I pulled a muscle their and it comes and goes all the time... When I am in the pain I am in MAJOR pain. I can't walk, it hurts to sit, but then it goes away pretty quickly. I don't remember having this with my other 2 but this pregnancy is totally different!

I hope you start feeling better soon!

YES! But the pain covers the whole area, on both sides and sometimes in the middle. It feels like a lot of pressure at times when I'm standing and then again it'll just be sharp pains when I try to change positions (sitting, standing, laying).

Gah I'm hoping the pain goes away soon because I get it off and on so often now!

I've been having A LOT of pain, mostly feeling like my cervix is being needled. My hip joint has made it rough to stand up, after sitting for very long at all. The list goes on, of uncomfortable and/or painful things I never experienced with my other pregnancies. I'd say it sounds pretty "normal"... sadly...

Sounds like what I been getting... Maybe it is a 3rd child thing.... Smile

I'm having this too! Especially if I'm standing or walking for a long period of time. I asked the doc about it on Wednesday and they said it's just one of the "joys of pregnancy"

The round ligament attaches to the vulva. Had the same pains in the middle of the 2nd trimester. Sucked donkey toes for sure. I could barely walk without getting shooting pains in my vagina.

Well at least I know it's normal. That makes me feel better. To an extent. Ha I'll feel better when all the pains can go away!
