    Default Sore Coccyx Bone

    Is any one else experiencing a sore coccyx bone??



    The past few days mine has started hurting when I get up and down in my seat. Today it's starting to hurt just moving around in my seat and it's not a nice pain and it's restricting movement. It's by no means unbearable - I was just wondering whether this is normal I guess.

    Thanks!

    I've had it since about 15 weeks, and so has a lot of others here on BB from what I've read! Lol!

    I put it down to being in a a sit-down job all day, but I do get it even lying down in bed propped up on some pillows.

    Lea - Sore Coccyx bones always happen in pregnancy, not much you can do for them sorry.

    I have a broken one........
    I had to stop aqua aerobics at 20 weeks coz i actually made it hurt more.

    Oerr Jacci, ouch!

    I did make it actually Lea. I wore that tankini top with a bikini bottom, and when I got there 3 of the 6 ladies were wearing bikinis! I was the most modest all things considered. I was also the least advanced as far as pg goes! All the other ladies were 33-36 weeks!

    Have you gone to yours yet? It was soooo nice! And I didn't realise how much gravity weighed the body down until I started getting out of the pool and felt like huge weights were being put back on my body!

    Ouch Jackie- that sounds painful!!

    I'm moving next week so I'm starting the week after on Tuesday. I can't wait I'm so excited. I think it's going to be great!! Was it too tiring at all??

    My coccyx is still hurting LOL. Its worse when I'm sitting at work though so the next 4 days will be heaven as I have them off - yay!!!

    Lea,

    I had really sore muscles that night and the day after. I didn't feel it during the workout but it meant I was actually using those muscles, even if it didn't feel like it at the time!

    So yes it was lovely, but yes, it also gave you a workout. Can't say it was tiring though!

    love

    Sushee & Lea - I actually found it really hard - there were these old grannies there and they were hooking along and here i was struggling!!!!
    Mind you it didn't help that there was this nasty old lady there who had to be first all the time- so i was racing her just to prove i could beat her........ my DH thought this was quite funny!!!

    Jacci,

    I went to a specialised aquanatal one, so only preggy woman there. The nannas had their class before us and yes, it was all a bit competitive in their little group! Lol! I went to watch the aqua areobics class at my local rec centre and with my round ligament problems, I figured it was all to vigorous for me! So I called my maternity hospital and got contact details for an antenatal class instead.

    love

    Yes I have had problems with my coccyx area as well for a while now. It is not very pleasant at all and unfortunately there is not much you can do about it. I have a sit down job so I think that is what makes it worse.

    As I have a fair bit of sick leave up my sleave I have asked my doctor to write me out a doctors certificate to reduce my work hours from 7.5hrs/day to 5 hours. I find this makes my days bearable now as I am now going home just as my coccyx starts to get unbearable.

    Hey girls

    I have a special grey thing that slips on the back of my chair and forces me to sit differently so I will see how that goes with my back etc.

    And I start my aquanatal classes tomorrow night - I'm so excited. Mine is just for preggo women as well. It's $12 for a casual visit but they have a special where you can buy 15 visits fo $99. If I have to stop I can always use them after I have Emerson on a normal class. But yeah pretty pumped and I can't wait!!

    Hi all

    Like Jackie, I broke my coccyx bone (when I was a teenager though), but haven't had any pain there *yet*. I go along to the aqua aerobics for pg women at the hospital and find it helps a lot with sore hips and joints. Rotating on a fit ball has also helped. I have been getting a sore pubic bone though, and when we started antenatal classes I got an answer that explains both.

    Apparently when the ligaments go all soft through pg two of the joints that can suffer the most are at the front and the back because of this and the weight resting on them. Also, during labour the coccyx gets pushed out of the way, so I'm guessing it needs to be a bit looser for this to happen!!
