  • you said it yourself
    it's hurting because you are putting more weight on that side because you broke your toe.

  • It may have something to do with nerves, the fetus can put pressure on places you didn't even think you had, let alone could hurt. At 12 weeks I doubt the relaxin has been released yet, so it's unlikely the pain is from the loosened ligaments and tendons. The best remedy for these kinds of pains is to alternate heat and cold, and take an anti-inflammatory. Tylenol is what is recommended, but the stuff never worked for my pain or headaches. I found that one asprin with a regular dose of Tylenol helped more, although I wouldn't do this past the 6th month. You may want to talk to your doctor about a mild narcotic pain reliever is Tylenol is not effective. Darvon, Darvocet, and Talwin are all generally safe if you follow prescribing directions.
