Does everyone deal with this?

Posted by   + Show Post

My crotch is hurting something fierce. It feels like it's stretching from side to side. When I got up this morning I could barely walk. I've tried with a pillow between the knees, without. Sitting propped up seems to work the best, but then other stuff hurts.

Are there some preggo stretches I should know about? Any tips, or other ladies suffering the same?

In what position? My sides (how I sleep) seem to make it worse.

I often feel like I've been beaten in the crotch with a baseball bat, but lying down usually helps me the most.

Yes and it was the worst with my youngest.I just started getting it with this one a couple weeks ago but it's not as bad as it was with my youngest.With her I could hardly walk,needed help out of bed and my husband had to put my panties on for me.Its a pubis dysfunction

Quoting MsNeene:

I had something similar with my pregnancies in the past. It was worse with my last pregnancy. I did find these gel ice packs (that even when frozen the still were movable and could be formed to fit where you waned them) and I basically wore it like a maxipad inside my panties that way it was kind of right on the pain. Did this for 15 mins on and off over and over again. It didn't get rid of it but it helped numb the pain. I was induced at 36 weeks and through labor it got worse it finally went away a few days after I gave birth.

What causes this? Is it the muscle, or the bone?

Was she big? I was thinking it might be because he's big. Measured 5lbs at 32 weeks. (googling pubis dysfunction)

Yes she was big but I had her at 42 weeks and 1 day.Size of baby has nothing to do with it.Its pretty much the bones spreading to far apart which causes the pain.I had it with all 3 but youngest was the worst

Well thankfully none of the kids were in school then so I didn't have to walk a whole amount but I had to force myself to do things even though I was in pain.Didn't really have a choice and had no one to help me except for my husband when he was home from work.

Forgot to add now with this one I get it at times when walking but nothing compared's to how it was with my youngest since with her it was all the time and this time I find the most it happens is when I'm laying down or asleep

I recommend a chiropractor too. I love the birthing ball. I have sciatic nerve and SPD when pregnant. I love my chiropractor and massage therapist. With my second it was so bad for two weeks I could not move an cm without being in pain. I was only seeing my chiropractor at the time. So he recommended massage therapist too.

That would be great, but IDK if insurance will cover it.
