I broke my butt

4 wheeler riding a few weeks ago. We were going slow because all the kids were rIDing with us and there was a little hole dh didn't see and he hit it on the back tire I was sitting over on the rack and I hit it hard.
Now I can't sit for long or lay down on my bottom or it goes numb in a painful way. Laying on my side makes my hips hurt pretty bad.
I see my Dr for the first time on Friday and I'm going to ask him about it but I'm not sure what an ob can do about it besides tell me to see a chiropractor ugh. Im miserable and pretty sure my tail bone is fractured even just slightly or I wouldn't still be hurting this bad after like 4 weeks

why did it take a month for you to seek medical care?

I was thinking its just sore cause I hit my tailbone on the metal bars
I didn't actually consider it was any worse than that, and I mean its not like they can put my butt in a cast... Or do surgery while I'm pregnant.

Shit... I'd hoped after it healed it wouldn't hurt so bad. And maybe not be going numb constantly. Sometimes if I don't sit just right it will take my breath just getting back up

My mom did that. It can mess with the fluids in other parts of your body careful she started to go blind. Chiropractor fixed it for her

No, it's not, lol. A doughnut type cushion to sit on would be helpful though.
