It sounds similar to what I felt around then. The uterus is getting bigger, pushing other things out of the way. Around 24 weeks is definitely when I started having Darling Husband put on my shoes if I really didn’t feel like bending down to do it myself.

@mwitter80:  I’ve had this pain since 29 weeks 🙁 My midwife says it’s normal. She says I could take a Tylenol if I wanted to…but I don’t want to so I just deal with it.

Check out this link from Wiki on Pelvic Girdle Pain. Getting up from sitting for a long time, rolling over in bed, getting dressed–you name it, it hurts to do for me. What’s been helping me is wearing a belly support belt and using my exercise ball as my chair at work. And taking breaks from sitting for a long time.

yeah it’s normal. I have had groin pain for a few months now too. Sometimes it’s worse than others, like when I feel him pushing his head as hard as he can into my cervix, he is already engaged down there so it’s even worse than it was 2-3 months ago when he wasn’t engaged! 

Sorry you have to deal with this too 🙁 I don’t really have any advice or tips, but just know that other preggos are suffering too!

Yep, totally normal, and you sound right on target for when mine started up.

Unfortunately, for me at least, it gets worse, and remains pretty constant (35.5w).  My doctor said it will go away pretty much the second I deliver.  Sometimes Tylenol helps it, and sometimes it doesn’t, so mostly I’ve been just soldiering through.

I get that all the time. It feels like the baby is pressing down on my lady area. It varies from sharp pain to dull pain, and seems to be centralized more on the left side (TMI sorry!)

Ugh I have this too. Probably have since 25 weeks or so. Its definitely worse when putting socks on or pulling up my pants. On long walks I feel the same pressure too and almost kinda in my butt. Yay!

Ugh, I have this too.  Every time I sit up, roll over, get up to walk, try to put my pants on… some days are better than others.  I feel it the most when I put weight on my right leg and feel like I’ve been walking funny because of it.  I’ve found that supporting my belly with my hand when I get up or first start walking helps.  I think I may need to be like mrsjazz and get a support belt.

I have this pain too, I’m 31 weeks and lately when I wake up in the morning it feels like the baby is about to fall out, so much pressure on my pelvic area!

Yep – I have this sometimes.  It is really hard to put on my shoes/socks these days.

Take 2-3 10 minute brisk walks a day to help get circulation…. If it’s more like “swollen ladies” part. It REALLY REALLY helps! I was having that so bad where I felt swollen & sore & started doing that per my midwife and haven’t had anymore problems.

If it’s more like the pgp then I suggest seeing a chiropractor… that’s more pelvis & hip pain though. Take small strides, & laying on your back doing 10 pelvic tilts held for 10 seconds a piece really helps. There’s also a way that the chiropractor had Darling Husband pulling my leg BUT that would definitely need to be shown to you by a professional. =)

It could also be SPD which is a little more severe and what I had. If it is then I would contact a chiropractor. Mine started out occasionally and went to the point where I could barely walk. Rolling over in bed was torture and would wake me from a sound sleep screaming at night. I self diagnosed myself at the end of the pregnancy. If I had said more sooner than they might have diagnosed it but I heard it was normal and so I dealt with it. Severe intense pain is never normal.

Here is some information on it…

@mwitter80:  That’s what I have too! I slipped into almost a full split in HEB and threw my hip out of line (thanks to all that pregnancy elastin)…

Definitely see a chiropractor! I couldn’t even sit or walk for 3 days and even after just 1 adjustment I was SOOOOO much better! And the chiropractor gave me those exercises to do. They have helped SO much!

Mwitter80 – you just can’t catch a break! This baby is going to be the love of your life to make up for all the pain you’ve gone through lately. I would talk to my doctor about it just in case…better to be safe then sorry 🙂
