My newest really weird pain...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It is a really sharp pain in the tendons connecting my thighs to my pelvis. And it's really, really sudden and intense when it happens, almost like a leg cramp or Charlie Horse, except on the inside of my thighs next to my crotch. What the heck is this?! Anyone else?

I've been getting that too... I have NO idea what it is but it happened when I was in labor with DS too, not fun!

I've been getting that for weeks. It seems to happen on and off when I walk but sometimes it will happen if I am just sitting or lying down. It feels like maybe the baby leans on some nerve down there. Super annoying.

Me too!

Yes, that is totally normal, or at least, it happened to me many times towards the end of my first pregnancy (I'm in the middle of my second now). I think it's something related to the position of the baby & the baby's pressure on some nerve. It really does hurt! Soon your baby will be out though!

I got that a lot a couple of weeks ago but it went away, thankfully. It was so hard to walk! My midwife said it was a pinched nerve, due to the baby's position.

I had that randomly the other day! Only once or twice though...weird!

I get that too. My little guy's head has been crammed down in my pelvis for about a month.

I've been getting that super sharp pain on and off for a couple of weeks. More so this last week, I think he is farther down now. I tend to get it when I make a sudden movement, and sometimes after having been sitting, when I stand up and turn to move. It makes me stop cold!

Andee

I have been getting this for about a month or so. It has been worse the past couple days, like I was in the kitchen earlier trying to clean out my pantry, and it happened so much that I gave up and dropped to my knees. When I get this pain- if I put my hand on my lower belly right above the pubic bone, I can feel LO "going crazy". I figured it was her hitting nerves, and since a pp said that aas well, I am more convinced! It doesn't feel good! I get it most after standing for 15+ minutes. Ick. Showering sucks now.

Sounds like round ligament pain or your LO hitting a nerve to me. Its sharp and darn if it doesn't hurt!

Oh, yeah! Got that a little with #2, and this time is awful! Sometimes I feel like my leg is going to twist off or something. I get it on both sides, back and front. Seems like if I am really careful about walking and standing up straight, I can almost avoid these attacks. I asked my MW about these and she seemed unconcerned, but sympathetic, and said, "it really would be nice if that baby came soon, huh?" Her explanation was just the usual--stretching, relaxin, pelvic movement, etc.. I have to say, my hips cannot get an wider (I had to get XL undies), and I think it has something to do with the pelvis and hips moving apart.

Count me into the misery loves company group - I just started having that pain last week. Baby dropped like a stone, so I think it must have something to do with that. It's eased off the last couple days though. Hope you find some relief soon!!!

Me too!

I get those, and a couple weeks ago I felt like I had major bruises in that area that were sore all the time. The bruised feeling seems to have subsided, but those sharp pains still come and go quite a bit. Chiropractor said something about nerves that are located all around the groin/pelvis area, front and back, that can cause that feeling.
