Constant and severe is the pain!  Standing, walking, sitting, laying down. Doesnt matter 85% of the time my tailbone is killing me!  It started about 2-3 months ago and has gotten worse.  what could be causing this?  Ive never injured my tailbone in anyway.........so its not an old injury.
Im 23 weeks

I would call your OB/Midwife about this.  It is most likely the effects of hormones on your bones/ligaments/joints but it would be best to be checked out.  The added hormones naturally loosen ligaments and the weight of your uterus can add pressure to nerves.

If it is affecting you 85% of the time, they should check it out and recommend some massage or physical therapy for you.  You still have 17 weeks to go and you need to be able to get around!!

Good luck!
