I broke mine with my first. He had a really short cord apparently and with my first push his HR dropped to 60 and stayed there...he became a fast a furious forceps delivery. I literally pushed with 7 contractions over 18 minutes, the last push was the one and only pull with the forceps, so nothing had time to stretch! I remember as his head was coming out feeling and hearing a pop and thinking "I just broke my tailbone". I had a 4th degree and that was seriously nothing compared to the tailbone pain. It hurt to sit for months, I was always tilted on one butt cheek. I was so afraid of it being an issue the next time because I didn't hear of it happening to anyone else (patients or friends) I had an epidural the second time, with a great top off during the end. He had the perma-crown at the end because the scar tissue would not give and I was pretty numb, so he literally sat on my tailbone for over an hour...all 9lbs 4 oz of him. My tailbone was a little achy for like 2 days then it was a non-issue.
