Horrible tailbone pain

I'm 7 mos. pregnant and have horrible tailbone pain. This is my second pregnancy and I never experienced this in my first. It hurts to sit down or get up from sitting and if i sleep, or lay on my side it just worsens it. Does anybody know what causes it? I can't get relief b/c I have to chase my 20 month old around all day. I called my ob and spoke with a nurse and she made it seem like its just a part of pregnancy but this is really killing me! Has anyone had this or know what this is?

  • i had it horribly and mine was even more pain because ive sprained it soooo many times in the past... try pillows between your legs, warm baths.. switching positions not sitting for that long... it hurts like hell huh
