The Official Broken Crotches Club - Page 2

post #21 of 51
Bless your hearts ladies. I would have SO been in this club a week ago.

Just thought I would give you guys some encouragement and reaffirm that once the baby is born the crotch pain from h e double hockey sticks goes away like magic!

Hang in there, you all have almost made it.

I'm taking this to a new level....with every step I take, my crotch pops...loudly.

It started with my first steps out of bed and has continued all.day.long. OMG, it's more annoying than the baby hiccups happening 5 times a day/night.

And then the pain - the bruising feeling way up in my pelvis is killing me.

I just want a warm bath and a 2 hour massage. I miss DP because I miss him, but I also miss the massages he gives me.

They let me use the staff bathroom, thankfully. I think I've reached the point in pregnancy where I can ask to use the bathroom anywhere and they won't give me a hard time.

Sometimes the pain I have at the front of my pubic bone is so bad I cannot walk. I can crawl as long as I move my right leg forward with my hand. I'm sitting on the couch right now debating whether to call DH to come home. I can't believe how painful this is!

Kim, that sounds horrible! Do you have a chiro or can you get in to see one? I know the babies are doing some major work on our pelvises at this point, but hopefully a chiro could offer some relief!

Definitely get to a chiro if you can - one who specializes in pregnant mamas. I *love* my chiro and am so thankful I live near one who knows what he's doing.

I can't wait for Wednesdays...

I also recommend a chiropractor. I had a fantabulous one where we used to live. I'm pretty sure that's the only way I lived through that pregnancy!!!

I had SI pain with #1, and SPD now. I started seeing a new chiro (with 4 weeks to go!) and he recommended a modified pigeon pose. It *really* helped. Also, there is a stretch where you sit on a chair, rest one ankle over the opposite knee, and lean over with palms up so your elbows are on your knees. You get an awesome stretch through the hips.

The pubic bone pain is still there but at least I can walk!!!

Thank you for the suggestions. I have not seen a chiropractor this pregnancy. I was doing well until last week when I took a nice long walk (it was so nice to get out alone) while my husband was home to watch the kids. It did me in, and I've not been the same. I will give the chiro a call. I feel much better after a night of sleep and taking the morning off from house work or errands. I can walk today, albeit slowly and with a very short, ginger stride.

Well, I'm still a member of the Broken Butt Club, though thankfully mostly in an annoying, rather than painful, way. I still can't sit too long or lie on my back without my SI joint getting achy, which I'd really thought would improve without all the baby weight there. And it gets clicky every time I cough, which is frequently.

I suppose I just have to give it time. Or a chiropractor, if time isn't doing it.

ocelot. I'm not expecting mine to go away immediately... I think it will take time and chiro work, honestly. I hope it improves quickly for you!

I went to the chiropractor. Glad I did, I feel much 'straighter', but my crotch still hurts. In fact, a little worse from where I was this morning. Hoping after some rest i will at least be better off than the weekend.

I dunno how this happened, but I just walked 3/4mi without any significant pelvic pain! I had to drop the van off because the a/c suddenly stopped working last night. Praying it's just a need for freon! So I walked home with the kids from the shop (which I've considered doing before and never done). Oh and did I mention it's 88° out and humid so with the head index it's 94°?! My boys were complaining from the get-go but I was okay most of the time! My round ligaments were more of an issue than my pelvis. I'm shocked!

And I've gotta go shower and head to the massage/chiro which will hopefully help even more. Gee, maybe I'll survive the next few weeks!

my chiro recommends going in as soon as possible after baby is born, and before this i would have scoffed but i fully intend to this time. probably not till at least 1 week PP but ill be there soon after.
try to make some time!
eta: it does take time for everything to get back to where it should be, but dont wait too long mama. being in pain is no fun.

I *always* go within a few of days of birth to get my pelvis back in place. The pubic bone pain doesn't disappear immediately for me w/o the chiro's help.
Plus, I always get baby adjusted since they are often out of alignment from the birth and it can affect nursing. My last one had a clear case of torticollus where his head was cocked to one side and he had trouble nursing. After his adjustment around 2-3 days old, nursing went beautifully, he held his head straight and he was *much* happier.
My sister's baby had the same thing & I recognized it immediately. She had the same great results.

I'm beginning to have a lot of anxiety about the birth. Is this stabbing pain going to make things unbearable during labor and as the baby descends during pushing? I am so thankful to have a tub to labor/birth in if need be, and the yoga ball is a bearable place to be. I'm really nervous. I feel so helpless when I can't move my own legs. Can physical therapy be of benefit? I did the chiro, and so far I still have a lot of pain.

It never bothered me in labor, I had other pains that took precedence.
