  • I am goin through the same thing right now the dr said it's normal and to get one of those maternity braces or whatever there called, and to just take tylanol if i need it. I don't know if it has anything to do with it being a girl.

  • that whole area around your pelvis is moving and expanding. (which is why our rear ends tend to get larger during pregnancy) lol...

  • I have had major tailbone pain as well during my pregnancy, it was so bad I couldn't bare to sit down on it. The doctor told me that my baby is laying down there and putting pressure on it. She told me to get down on all fours and arch my back like a scared cat to get the baby to move up and also to wear a pregnancy belt.
