<p>I never experienced this with my first, and it's getting really bad. Midwife said it's normal, but last night I could barely walk or sleep. It's, for lack of a better term, in my groin. I can't pinpoint it. Kind of feels like I have been either riding a horse, or walking around trying to clench a watermelon between my knees. I thought it was veins and swelling, but now it feels like actual muscle or, my midwife suggested, bones, rubbing up against each other.  Its mostly on my right side, and hurts when I lay on my left side, so much so, I can't lay that way, even with pillows between my legs. Hurts worse at the end of the day or after a lot of walking. I can't fully even explain were it is, so I am having trouble describing it. Would a chiro even help with this pain? Anyone else have this?</p>

Sounds like SPD to me ... I have it, too.  I don't know if it will end up helping, but I plan to make an appointment with a chiropractor this week!</p>

<p>ugh I have this too....I literally feel your pain ! It's so hard to explain to people (DF) that have never experienced it. If you found any relief me let me know.</p>

<p>DDC crashing-Yes go see a chiro! I had this pain with my first and I have no doubt without regular chiro visits in the last few months, I would have not been able to walk near the end. </p>

<p>Wow.  I've been experiencing this too.  The front part of my pelvic bone feels like it's on fire.  I can barely walk especially if I've been sitting for a long period of time.  Maybe I should also call a chiro. </p>

<p>I too have had this pain although its off and on. Overnight i make sure that I sleep with my knees together, a pillow between and I no longer cross my legs when I sit down. I think doing these things prevents the irritation. I have been fortunate to not need the chiro, although I do get accupuncture.</p>

<p>A chiro can seriously help. Mine kind of "popped" my pubic bone...I don't know exactly. He had me lay on my back with my legs bent and together. Then he said, "Don't let me pull your knees apart." and applied pressure outward...there was a LOUD pop (like, my DH heard it standing just outside the room) and it felt like something released. It was amazing. :lol He also said it's totally normal as the ligaments move around and get strained.</p>
