Just curious.

Today is day two of funky tailbone pain. After doing a search here, I see that it is pretty common for pregnant women once the relaxin hormone works its magic....I'm about 10 weeks now. I think I'll find a good prenatal chiro and put them on my speed dial now, to get ready! LOL (During the last baby, I had lots of rib pain starting at 12 weeks, and carpal tunnel. I just dealt with it, but now I see chiro is supposed to help.)

I'm also feeling lots of little prickles and twinges in my cervical/uterus area, and the tendons (?) on the sides of my tummy are tight and uncomfortable when doing any twisting movements already. Like rolling over when in bed.

I guess I forgot how soon some of this begins!! How are you all doing?

Rib and groin/pelvic pain. I need to go to the chiro.

I get the twinges from the streching.

I have have this nasty but the won't leave me a lone...he sits on my sholders and makes me look at diapers....sometimes he even makes me buy them! Can I please send him to someone elses house???

Not much else right now I think the ms keeps trumping everything else.

Well, my boobs are KILLING me.

I can definitely tell the relaxin is doing its work - I have this lower back pain that I get only on one side with every pregnancy - got to go to the chiro because he can fix it right up. I can also tell I have the beginnings of this pubic pain (happens when I stand on one foot, or do certain kinds of movements). I've had it before and it's not nearly as bad as some people get it, but it's there.

Otherwise, not too much! I can't wait to get some baby movement going on.

So my theory that my non existent boob pain is due to having been pregnant before and having nursed before . . . is wrong. Should I be worried that my boobs don't really hurt? They KILLED during DD's pregnancy.

I'm just super tired. My sacrum is definitely moving out of place more quickly now. My progress exam with my chiro on Monday was not so great. My weight distribution (between left and right side of body) was way off, and my pelvis is still torqued. I've been having more rib pain too and more subluxations in the ribs in the past 2 weeks. I assume it's the relaxin . . . coupled with stress.

My only pregnancy clues right now are that I'm looking slightly chubby around the middle (I'm normally pretty slim) and my back pops all the time. I'm tired a lot too, and my patience is wearing thin. Not looking forward to the pubic symphisis (sp?) I had last time... though it didn't onset until around 6 mos. Luckily it will be during the summer and I'll be able to get out and walk (if it's not a miserably hot summer .
