Sharp pain in tailbone area, early pregnancy?

I'm close to 9 weeks along in my first pregnancy & I've been having these sharp pains on the left side of my tail bone. It's not constant, but it hurts when I bend over or move the wrong way. I thought I had slept weird or something but it's been hurting for about 2 weeks. But I figured it was to early in my pregnancy for that to be causing it.

Any one else ever experienced anything like this?

  • Indeed. I noticed it around week 7. And it's funny you mention that, because it just kinda... stopped and I never realized it until now. So I can't even really tell you when it stopped!

  • It could be a sciatic nerve, just a pinched nereve,they are no fun I had it but I was alot futher along.It felt like when you wist your foot or hand & walk or move the wrong way , thats what it kinda felt simlar to.
