OUCH! Pelvic Pain

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi ladies - I'm having AWFUL pelvic pain today - feels like what I expect to feel around 30 weeks when your pubic synthesis bone begins to separate. My hips are sore, it hurts to sit or stand...

 

anyone else experiencing anything like this? and so EARLY?

I had pubis symphesis problems from NINE WEEKS in my third pregnancy.  I had consistent and EXCELLENT chiropractic care for the rest of the pregnancy and although it was never all the way better, I never became unable to function.  I am SO thankful that I haven't had any significant problems with it this time, because we do not have the money for chiro care right now.

I'm so sorry segolily!  This does not sounds like something that I will look forward to...

 

On the topic of aches and pains and pregnancy changes, is it normal to be feeling shortness of breath a couple different times a day at this point?  I'm just shy of 14 weeks.... It's not debilitating, but I definitely notice it!

@segolily - I'm there with you, and it hurts! For some reason, I tend to have the pain in my second trimester - really, besides feeling as big as a house, the ending weeks were pretty comfortable last time! Chiro adjustments help, frequent if you can.

oh yeah, i'm feeling it too. my pelvis started to separate about 24 weeks last pregnancy, and by the end of pregnancy i could barely walk and cried when i got out of bed. this time it started at 14 weeks, and i'm not excited. i can feel the pubic symphesis pop/grind when i move. the plus side is that it makes pushing easier. i only pushed for 10 minutes with dd, only about 5 good pushes till she was out. trying to console myself with that thought.

Sorry to hear that, Sego :(

 

AlaskAnne, some shortness of breath is normal. Everything's starting to get squished, including your lungs, and you have a lot more blood to oxygenate now that you're pregnant. I think it serves as a good reminder to slow down :) Also, you don't have to look forward to pelvic pain (or rather, you don't have to not look forward to it). Not everyone experiences it.

My midwife also recommended eggs in addition to the chiro for the pelvic pain. Very interesting; thought I'd pass that along in case it helps someone else!

Guess I'll find a new chiropractor then - I had a ton of chiro care during 2nd & 3rd pregnancies. My chiro moved away a few years ago, and I hadn't bothered to replace him, but if this continues I will be immobilized soon!

 

Eggs - interesting, I'm allergic so don't eat them, but curious what the connection is@!

I feel your pain- literally!  Nice to hear that it makes pushing easier, never thought about that one.

If you haven't already check out Spinning Babies.  They have great suggestions on getting baby in good position.  I'm a doula and suggest this to all of my clients.  I started getting pain very early as well.  I spend a lot of time on my birth ball and it helps tremendously!

I haven't been having pelvic pain, but my tail bone hurts.  I find that doing a flat footed squat, instead of sitting, helps a lot....and strengthens the pelvic floor, too!  I just wish it was more socially acceptable in our culture, so I could do it when not at home, LMAO!   I need to blow up my exercise ball, I'm sure that would help too.

Haven't really had the pelvic pain yet...but I do get that later on in the third trimester for sure.  However, I have a few times pulled ligaments and have gotten weird twinges/sharp pulling pains when I get up.  I have to be really careful getting up...rolling on my side and getting up slowly!

I was just over at a client's house doing a side lying release tonight. Spinning babies is pretty great :) 

 

In achy news, just lots of round ligament pain over here. I was showing that same client how to do stair squats and totally pulled on one side. Sometimes, I forget that I'm pregnant, too, and can't move around too fast! If pregnancy does this to me, I wonder how I'm going to be 40 years from now :)

Yep, major round ligament stretching here too. Even when I sneeze. It started weeks ago, which kind of caught me off guard. And also I've had this strange sort of buzzing sensation in my uterus. It's not baby movements. When I first felt it around 5 weeks, I looked it up online. Of course no "real" websites talked about it but I found loads of discussion posts from other moms who've felt the same thing. It comes and goes and is totally bizarre.
