Hello everyone! I have a question I am greatly curious about. I had my son over a year ago and while I was in my last month it felt like my pelvic bone was splitting in two. It hurt really bad! Anyway I am now pregnant with my second and I am only in my 23 week and I am huge and the pelvic bone seems to have that same pain again. Did anyone else baby decend so quickly? I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday but i would love to hear from you. As mothers I would love your opnion or advice. Thank you! Kalie

my pregnancy wth my first son he was turned down from about 22 weeks! he was more than ready to come out! So I endure alot of pressure and pain in the pelvic and croutch area! I am currently almost 25 weeks pregnant and I think that it is the same thing! Constant pressure and pain down there! It seems to me that they are more anxious to come out than you realize! I think that it is normal for some but still be careful that you dont put yourself into early labour!

ask your dr if it might be early onset symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) with my 3rd it started at 17 weeks my sister had it from 15 weeks with her 2nd. If it's that bad they can refer you to a physio therapist who can give you a support belt and crutches to ease the pressure and give you some exercises to try. It gets worse with every pregnancy and there isn't much you can do about it except try to take the pressure off. SPD is more than just normal pregnancy pain so look up the symptoms on line and see if that describes the pain you are feeling.

With my 3rd daughter I had terrible pelvic pain. It started around 5 months. I thought it was because I had a large baby. She was only 6lbs 9oz. Try lying on pillow or putting one between your legs. Keep your legs elevated when you sit. Tylenol worked sometimes. Other than that all I can say is good luck.

Yup...that's about when it started for me with baby #2. Didn't have it much with baby #1...but I carried baby #2 differently...and much lower. It felt like I was splitting apart for months. Just wait until the waddling starts :). I carried baby #3 a bit higher than #2, so it didn't get progressively worse with baby #3--thank goodness!

OMG YES!! And it hurts soooo badly! I feel for you. I was about 5 1/2 or 6mo. when mine started with my first and later than that with my 2nd. I was very low with both my girls. Good luck with the new baby to come!

Hi Katie and congratulations on the second baby coming. With my daughter I had no pelvic pain until they induced labour. With my son I started having pelvic pain the six doctor told me that it was due to the fact that the ligaments and muscles had been stretched out with the previous pregnancy and that the muscle memory was contributing to the faster descent and opening of my pelvis. If you have a very large baby (or perhaps multiples....they aren't always seen on the first ultrasound) that could be the cause. Could you also be wrong in your conception month could make all the difference in the world. If you are overly concerned and if the pain gets any worse I would call the doctor to see if he can get you in on Monday just to ease your mind because there is nothing worse than being pregnant AND stressed out...the two DO NOT go well together.
