Aches and pains of pregnancy!

My lower abdomen is SORE. I can deal with this pain but what in the world is up with my tail bone? I could barely walk yesterday. I was out and about most of the day yesterday cringing, limping and almost falling down on few occasions because the pain in my tail bone was so intense. It's especially bad after I've been sitting down. Once I'm up and walking around the pain eases a bit but not much. Wow....I hope it doesn't get any worse than this because it HURTS! lol

Anyone else having any aches and pains? Sad

That sounds awful! I have never really had anything like that ... Except I had like shooting nerve pain back there a couple weeks ago. Thankfully it only happened for a couple days. I really hope you get some relief quickly!

Ive always had bad knees, but right now they hurt sooo bad. Every time I stand or sit it is horrible pain Sad If I don't feel better in a few weeks I'll bring it up at my appointment the first week of October.

Other than that everything is good. I feel the belly stretching but isn't painful. It gets uncomfortable occasionally but doesn't bother me.

I find the growth in my uterus is getting more painful. At first it was light cramps and twinges but now it's achy. My uterus is really getting big now, I can feel it right up to my belly button already! But baby seems to be really low, snuggled right down in my pelvis.

Jina I hope your pain eases soon! I had a bruised tail bone once and it sounds like you are having similar pain.

Jina, that tailbone pain is sounding brutal!!

So far the worst I'm dealing with is really bad neck and shoulder pain from hauling around these big DDD boobs of mine all day - they haven't grown much in size, but man oh man I swear they're both at least a couple pounds heavier!

Megan, sorry about your knees. Sad You should definitely talk to your doctor about it. Hopefully there's something you can do to ease the pain.

Crystal, ouch, I wonder if there's anything you can do to get the baby to move up? I bet your uterus feels really sore and heavy with baby resting so low. I got kicked in my cervix for the first time the other day and man, it didn't feel too good. I feel like I have an octopus or a mini dolphin in my belly. I feel him everywhere. lol

Danielle, eek...I've read about sciatica pain and I hope I don't have to experience it. At least not at the same time as my tail bone pain.

Jo, I bbs feel pretty heavy too but I'm only a a/b cup so I can't imagine how you're feeling! I bet your DH enjoying them, though. Wink

Jina, I have nasty tailbone pain during all of my pregnancies except the first on. It almost feels like it needs to crack but doing so doesn't help at all. Sometimes it's so bad that I literally cannot move because it hurts so bad!!

It's terrible and I'm so sorry that you're dealing with tailbone pain too!! I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks Danielle! I'm sorry you had to deal with tail bone pain with 2 of your pregnancies! I hope you don't get it this time around!

Sadly I already have it. I had while not pregnant after DS3 too (even though the dr's all insisted it would go away after birth) and it got significantly worse a few weeks ago.

Nobody has been able to offer me any relief so I'm planning to see a chiro and see if maybe that will help. It's awful and I don't wish it on anyone so I really hope yours just goes away on it's own. Smile

I've always wanted to go to a chiropractor. I hope that you get some relief from that. I've heard amazing things about them.
