Severe tailbone pain! RELIEF?? (Desperate and cross-posted in other groups.)
For the past month and a half, pretty much since baby girl has been head down, I have been experiencing mild to moderate tailbone pain that I could relieve by using my heating pad or from dh massaging me for a few minutes. Ever since about 4 days ago, nothing is helping my tailbone pain! I wake up with severe pain there even after laying on my side the entire night. Heat and massage does not help, and I can't stand up all day to avoid touching the area.
I am not sure of what to do or if I just have to suffer until she comes in approx 6-7 wks. I do not take meds, and I especially do not want to take anything while I'm pregnant. It would be different if I could take a Tylenol and make it go away, but I hurt constantly lately, so that is not really an option. I am assuming since baby girl is so low that the pressure from her head is what is causing this pain. I have never experienced this pain before even while pregnant with my son 6 yrs ago.
I would appreciate any suggestions! Thanks, Megan!
