intense/sever groin pain

I had my Dr appt yesterday morning and it was only mild so I didn't bring it up, but since yesterday afternoon its been unbearable. If it was round ligament pain it should come and go but this is constant. No bleeding or anything but I can't walk without assistance or barely stand up,roll over in bed,put on my underwear and pants. It's been so severe that its even made me fall over and I need help getting up. Anyone else have this or ideas of what it is and what to do?

I have been having the same kind of thing going on. My doc told me that its just growing and stretching... and that since this isnt your first, you are bound to have more of it Sad I really recommend seeing a chiropractor. It really helps when mine gets bad. Hang in there, just over 10 weeks or so to go Smile

I read that even with stretching it shouldn't be this painful and comes and goes. It's so bad I cry with every step.

It could be separation of the pubic symphysis "cracking the pubic bone". Hurts like heck!

That would suck. Do they do anything for that?

Hope that everything checks out. As far as the pubic separation goes, there really isnt much you can do besides pain control Sad Ice, and meds is about all you can do till baby is out and things go back into place Sad

A support belt can help, so can PT, and taking it easy (ha!) Smile I had a terrible time last pregnancy, but it did resolve well before delivery, so at least I didn't suffer the whole time. Could also be the baby's position.

Basically they told me I'll be in awful pain like this until I give birth unless he moves. He has moved head down and is locked and loaded so thats why it came on so quickly. At my 4D u/s he was transverse, so he has made the journey into head down. They also said he is 4 lbs already so I'm guessing that doesn't help much either...ugh!

Ugh! Well at least all that pressure on your cervix could send you into labor earlier rather than later! Hang in there!

I know how you feel with him being locked and loaded. What a big boy already Smile Hopefully he holds on another 6 to 7 weeks. I know that sounds like forever when you are in that much discomfort/pain, but in the long run its what would be the best for him. Hang in there mama. Sounds like you are doing an awesome job growing a healthy, strong, little man Smile

I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much pain. Maybe he'll head back up a little bit and give you some relief.

Pubic Symphynsis is no fun! It's been bad with several of my pregnancies. Like you I had a hard time walking. I just wanted to cry. I told DH if felt like someone had hit my pubic bone with a hammer. I hope you get some relief!
