I'm sure this is normal, but...

My pelvic bone REALLY hurts. It's hurting my hips, my TMI area, etc. and I can't put my pants on in the morning without it hurting. Same with rolling over at night. My OB says I'm carrying a big baby, and I am 5'1" so maybe that has something to do with it, but my gosh it hurts so badly I want to cry! Is this normal? I don't remember having it so badly with my DD.

I have that in waves too. It is hard to walk and take care of my 2 yr old on those days. I think it is baby's head down low. Definitely normal, but yeesh it is irritating.

Re: I'm sure this is normal, but...

I'm having pain in that area too and don't remember it being as bad with dd1 either. I got a maternity support belt and I think it helps, but I can never remember to put it on...

Re: I'm sure this is normal, but...

I have it too - especially in the evenings and at night. And I'm not having a big baby!! Mine's probably going to be between 6-7 lbs - we just don't make them any bigger than that. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with all the extra relaxin in the system at this point, but still - ow!

I live in mine, but I'm on my feet a lot for work and would die w/o it. It helps w/ the hip pain, back ache and holds the weight of the baby so my stomach muscles don't hurt as much. I love it and highly recommend it to everyone at who's preggers (which is a fairly high percentage of my coworkers).

OP, it sounds like normal hip pain. I had it a lot last pregnancy. However, if you notice weakness in one or both hips, the hip locking up when you change position or the pain starts to go up your abdomen or down your leg-let your doc know. It could mean that the leg bone is jammed up in the hip bone, which is what I've been dealing w/. It's not as serious as it sounds and some physical therapy will get you back on par in no time, but it hurts like heck.

Take that with a grain of salt, I'm by no means an expert or any where near being a doctor. Oh and you won't need any xrays or fancy tests to tell. The doc just does some range of motion test (ie moves your leg around for you), some strength tests on the affected leg, and might check to see if you legs are the same length. It's super fast and relatively painless.

I have a belly support band, but it's not very comfortable. I think it may be too late in the game to buy another one...those jokers are expensive!
I'm glad to hear that the pain I feel is normal, but at the same time....I hate that we're all so uncomfy at this point, ya know?

You have a pelvic separation. I have had the same thing with all 7 of mine. You have the classic symptoms. I started seeing a chiropractor with my 5th because I couldn't even rollover the pain was so bad. It helped tremendously. You probably feel some clicking too when you change positions and also might have sciatica. It's all related. You can also wear a support belt to help. Sounds funny but try to keep your knees together when rolling over and getting up. Sit down to put your pants legs on. And ice helps the pain. It gets worse with each pregnancy but I'm 34 weeks today and still rolling over and minimal sciatica this time because of chiro.

It has been WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY worse this time around for me too! Yikes! It HAS gotten worse and I'm a total dork and completely forgot to use my chiropractor. HELLO! So glad you mentioned that. I'm calling him tomorrow!

I didn't have any with my first, 3 days I could. not. walk. with my second, pain the entire 3rd trimester with my 3rd, and only minimal random pain (mostly when she's dropping) this time. Completely normal. Just your bones getting ready to fit baby through!

Wow that makes sense! I might just need to call my chiropractor about it. I do have a lot of popping when I first stand up or start walking. My doctor says that baby is sitting on my sciatic nerve, but it's good to know it might be something else too. At night I can barely make it to the bathroom because of the pain!
