So I won't go into the whole story but I was trying to clean up my sons toys and when I went to sit down, I sat hard on the edge of my bed frame. I landed hard right on my tailbone. It hurt so bad at the time (seeing spots type of hurt). I was okay for a couple hours, but now it hurts so bad. Only really when I try to get up from a sitting position or try squatting down. I have a feeling this is going to seriously damper my nesting plans. Anyone else do this? How long did it take to feel better?

I've broken my tailbone several times and I doubt you could break it that easily. The can't do X-rays and you don't want them doing rectal exams to try and move it around to see how horrible it hurts (it's not fun when you aren't pregnant). There isn't anything you can do for a broken tailbone anyway. It will hurt when the baby moves down the birth canal. My first baby rebroke my tailbone during labor but I made it without an epidural (stubborn).
