I have a 6 1/2 month old girl, and was fine until about a month ago. I started getting pelvic pain. When I was about 8 months pregnant, I was having really bad pelvic pain, and my dr said it was good, as I should be dilating. Well, i didnt dilate past 3 cm, and ended up having a C section. When my 6 week waiting period was up, I only worked out a couple times. I just recently started working out again, and now am getting these pains. My dr says, my pelvic bone could be fractured, or dislocated. But for it to take this much time for me to notice the pain??

thanx ladies.. i am going to call my ob, since i think my family is an idiot! Ive been reading about it online, and it could also be adhesion. So, basically scar tissue. Could cause problems with my next pregnancy, and or cause me to have a hysterectomy. So i defiantly have to get to the bottom of this!

I Think You Should Get A Second Opinion From A Different Doctor.

This Doesnt Sound Normal.

Hope Everything Gets Better!

My aunt had to go to a bone docotr, because while giving birth to her second the doctor spearated her pelvic bones. She didn't find this out until she was pregnant with number3 about 2years later. She was in pain but her doctor told her she was fine.

It's possible that you had a condition called SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction) or even the related DSP. You'll find load of info on google. This is a condition that is recognised in the UK far more than in the US so most of the sites are located in the there. I still get niggles almost 7 years after DD was born. The majority of the pain thought cleared up a few months after the birth. A good cranial osteopath should be able to help re-align your pelvis. They won't necessarily be able to cure the problem but certainly be able to help in aleviating the pain.

I definitely think you should see your OB-GYN or PCP. Anytime you experience pain, your body is sending a message. New onset of pain may indicate a change. I firmly believe you should never ignore pain. Good luck!
