  • IF you are in that much pain go to the hospital. You could be in early labor or it could be a gall bladder attack or kidney problem. I hope you feel better.
    Go though, better safe then sorry.

  • No such thing as a bit extreme at this point in the pregnancy. Call your Doc, go to the hospital if you think you need to. Good Luck!!!

  • I would go to a chiropractor. Pregnancy can easily mess with your hip/spine alignment. Talk to your doctor if you want. I say find a chiro that works with pregnant women. It's a life saver.

    All the pains are worse with this pregnancy, I think things are stretching and moving more quickly with this one!

  • when it comes to yours and your baby's comfort during this pregnancy its not too extreme. If you are in that much pain and nothing you do works definately get checked. I would go to the hospital right away just in case there is anything to be concerned about. I can tell you that I had the same thing with my second child.. and I was told that the weight of child was a lot for my body to handle and that it was straining my back and irritating my bursitis in my hip. But I would get checked if I were you. I hope you feel better.

  • I WOULD HIGHLY ADVISE NOT GOING TO A CHIRO!!! I went for severe back & hip pain as well (in my 6th month of pregnancy) and it made the pain WORSE! You wouldnt think so, but the pain was unbearable AFTER the treatments.
    During labor & delivery with my first child, he caused 2 ruptured discs in my back (L4, & S1), so I know what kind of pain you are in. I suffered for months after he was born and nothing worked. I tried Physical Therapy, Meds, R&R, you name it. It took a very long time for me to heal, and I just pray to God that I dont have any more issues when this baby is born!!! It was not a pleasant experience, and I cant believe im doing it again!!! I must be crazy.

    Good luck with your pain!!!
