    Default Painful pelvic area


    I was wondering if anyone else gets these evil pains. They are very low and actually have the same sought of feeling as you do when the babys head is down. There not a cramp, more a sharp pain that runs all the way into my lower, lower area- if you know what I mean. It comes across my bum as well. They are just so painful. My next appoinment is not until the 7th of Feb.
    Any help would be great

    hey darl,
    i'm not real sure what your pains are, i read in one of my pg books that pains in the lower regions could be due to back problems, like slipped discs. This is probably nothing to do with what you have but i guess you'll have to wait until the 7th feb to find out. Good luck

    Hi rach,

    I had, and quite a few other poster on BB have complained of having ligament pain around the pelvis area, mine felt quite sharp when I moved eg rolling over in bed or twisting sideways, the best thing to do is to try and keep your legs together as much as possible when moving. If this is the pain you are talking about then it is caused by the softening of the ligaments due to PG hormones. Mine started in the second tri. and stayed until the baby was born, it drove me nuts. The other pain I suffered from was more like a wind pain that sometimes lasted for a day and felt like a painful bubble was stuck inside, and if I could just..... it would feel better. It felt like my insides were clamped around the bubble. Well thats enough about me and my innards. I hope you feel better soon.

    Pain in the lower back and buttocks is usually Pelvic Girdle pain so it sounds like you might be getting that. I've either had that or sciatica (I've had sciatica when not pregnant and it feels much the same so I'm not sure which it is).

    Pain in the pubic region can be Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or SPD (thank god for google). I think I might've started to get this last night. It started whilst lying in bed when I tried to shift position - particulary while rolling from side to side - mine's mostly on the left, although my buttock pain I've been getting is confined to the right side. Google it and see if that's what it is. My pain sounds very like it. I'm hoping not though cos it sounds like it generally hangs around for the entire pregnancy. Didn't get a lot of sleep last night.

    I've been getting a lot of lower pain as well. Before I feel pregnant I used to get lower back pain. I've spoken to my specialist and its all connected. Sometimes it is so painful when I walk (quite sharp) and other times it just starts to ache when I am not doing anything. You could always call your specialist if you are concerned?? Hope this helps a bit

    I used to get something that I could only describe as like a skewer up the hoohaar The only cure to that is birth!
