I am in the worst pain!!! The best way I can describe as to where it is would be where my leg stops at the top. I hesitate to say the groin, but I guess that's what it is. It feels like I've been moving boxes for two weeks, like I've strained something. Is this ligament pain or what?
This came on last week I believe... I feel it mostly when I stand up from sitting or sit down from standing or of course when I have to bend down and pick up some microscopic toy that fell underneath of somewhere.
Any stretches or exercises that anyone knows of that can be done to relieve or prevent this?
My midwife is supposed to be visiting today so I'll ask her too and pass along what she says if she has any advice.
I just can't believe I'm only 26 weeks and having this pain. It seems kind of unusual but I guess every pregnancy is different. That or I'm a very old 30 year old.
Take care ladies!

Sounds like the SPD or joint pain. Your pelvis is two seperate bones connected by a strong ligament in the middle. (May not be technically correct, but you'll get the idea lol) During pregnancy, the relaxin allows that ligament to soften and stretch more than it normally would. So, your hip bones aren't lined up right or they're stretched apart or they just move "wrong". It's good that it happens though, otherwise it wouldn't be as easy to push a baby out.
There is a great page on this site about SPD. Under pregnancy discomforts I believe.

Thanks Davina
Here's the exact link in case anyone else is experiencing the same thing (I'm sure they are)
I think it's time to get my butt to a chiropractor (no pun intended!).
