I had that but luckily it only lasted a few weeks. The pelvic pain comes and goes now a lot more than the tailbone pain. I am at 25 weeks. Hope it goes away for you too.

I have this problem and I’m not KU. It’s been killing me since we came back from our honey moon. I think the long flight did it. I really haven’t found much to help other than getting up and walking around every hour. Also, others have suggest a donut pillow, but, I’m a little embarrased. I’ve got an appointment tomorrow, I’ll let you know what he suggests. Hope it feels better soon!

Honestly? Nothing really helps. It goes away eventually. Mine didn’t until about 8 weeks postpartum. I hope you feel better soon!

@mrsmjm:  Sadly, I know exactly what you’re talking about.  I started having the tailbone pain around FIVE and a half weeks.  Ridiculous.  It hurts to stand, it hurts to sit, and sometimes it hurts to lie down if I’m laying straight.  Ugh.  Fetal position is the only thing that is working so far for me.  Hope you feel better soon!

I have it from time to time….poor husband becomes my massage therapist until the pain leaves… nothing else works. Oh laying in the bed on my side with a pillow behind my back helps a whole lot 13 weeks

@mrsmjm:  I’m 17 wks 5 days and my tailbone pain is peaking!

Last nigth was the worst ever! I used to get it once in a while as part of PMS or even “O” pain but nothing like this. Hurts to lie there, hurts to move. Finding the right place to put a pillow under the legs seems to help a bit!

Wonder is there is a reason it got so bad at 17 wks??
