when i was 33 weeks along, i woke up with an audible, painful popping in my pelvis every time i would take a step. i tried feeling the joint where my hip and femur meet, but it wasn't coming from there. it felt like it was right about where my cervix is...right in the middle of my body. i called the ob and they said to come to the hospital. i ended up being 1cm dilated and 50% effaced so they kept me overnight and gave me the steroids to mature the baby's lungs in case of early delivery. when they discharged me, the told me that i would have to be on bedrest.
they didn't seem to know what the popping was and just said it "could be" my pelvis separating to get ready for the delivery. im 35 weeks now and i'm still having it. it comes and goes and is excruciating! the only thing that really helps is when i wear my belly/back brace. that lifts my belly and takes some of the weight off of my pelvis.
i was just wondering if anyone else has had this and what the doctors said about it?
