Anyone else ever deal with this? This is my THIRD baby, and I never experienced anything like this with my first two. It feels like my pelvis is BREAKING. I can't walk up the stairs or *god forbid* chase the puppy down without extreme pelvic pain. For the first little while, I thought maybe it was just the weight of the baby hanging out down there. But now..I don't know. It really freaking hurts. And I'm only in my 17th week. I can only imagine it'll get worse from here!
I mentioned it twice to my midwife. The first time, she said it's totally normal to feel pressure there until the baby moves out of the pelvis. The second time, she asked me to describe the pain in detail (I said "I've had broken bones before, and that's what it feels like. Like my pelvis is broken.") and said it's probably due to the ligaments and everything beginning to loosen up, and maybe the pelvis is shifting a bit. She suggested I support myself when I walk. Yeah, because wandering around at work with my hands on my crotch is totally professional! Haha.
I've mentioned it to a few friends who have had children, and none of them have heard of this or experienced it. Please tell me I'm not alone here. WTF is wrong with my pelvis???
