  • I had that too! It's what happens to your pelvis when your prego. There are extreme cases of it though it's actually a condition I read about on the internet. Talk to your doctor for sure, rule out the more serious condition! Make sure it's just the normal shitty part of pregnancy lol. I carried a 10 lb baby and felt the same thing at around 25 weeks.

  • AS long as it's not a condition like the PP mentioned, it's just your body getting ready to have that baby. If you are in extreme pain ask your OB what you can take to relieve some of the discomfort. Hang in there mama, it's almost done!

  • the condition is called Pubic Symphysis. If the pain is severe, your OB can refer you for physical therapy and also prescribe you a "belt" to support the pelvic girdle.

    I have this so I know how you feel. Lots of times I just bend over a chair and rock my hips around in circles to stretch that area out really well. It feels good and takes the pressure of the baby off your back and pelvis.

    Good luck!
