Tail bone in pain

I'll be 37 weeks this Sunday and I went to bed last night w/ my tail bone hurting really bad. I could only lay on my side and then it still hurt but not as much. This morning it's the same. I've taken some Tylenol but just in case that doesn't work is there anything else I can do?

  • Sorry to say it may be the position that the baby is in pressing against the nerves in your lower back as a he/she shifts into the pelvis for delivery . Or it could be the begining of back labor.
