View Full Version : TMI - Pubic Bone Pain?
06-29-2005, 11:33 AM
For the last couple of days I've been sore "down there." Specifically around the pubic bone (around the mons pubis area). (Female genital anatomy: http://www.engenderhealth.org/res/onc/sexuality/anatomy/pg3.html)
I've been on "pelvic rest" for a month now (read, no sex). It doesn't feel like a groin injury. It does hurt whenever I move, for instance, when getting out of bed or rolling over. The pain does wake me when I flip over in the middle of the night.
Anyone experience anything similar?

Yeah, it feels like someone kicked me in the crotch. I feel bruised and sore. Is that the feeling you're talking about or is it more of a sharp pain?

That is EXCACTLY how I feel!

I just had an appt this morning and the dr said it's totally normal. He didn't give a reason, but I suspect it has something to do with all of the spreading and stretching that's going on in preparation. How far along are you? I'm a little past 37 weeks, but have been having this fun feeling (ha!) for a while now.

27 weeks. :( Wishing I were 37! ;)
This pain has been terrorizing me for WEEKS! My OB said there's nothing you can do. :( I feel like I'm going to split in half down there!

DITTO, ladies!!! I have had the exact same thing (33w, 4d here).

Yes, completely, like someone kicked me down there.
Dr said it was normal, it's my pelvic bone spreading (lovely) getting ready for the big day. It does seem to be getting worse, more constant

Should I be concerned that I'm only 27 weeks and feeling this? All you ladies seem to be in the 30+ week range.
I wouldn't be concerned - I starting having pubic bone pain probably mid-way through my pregnancy.... though it has come and gone and come back again but it has gotten worse.

I also had pubic pain just like you all described. It lasted for a while. Its normal.
I did squatting exercises to ease the pain.

I have this too! Its worse in the morning when I wake up and during the night. I feel as if someone kicked the crap out of me every morning when I wake up, I am so sore down there and everywhere else. I am 31w wishing I were 40!!!!

celina: I don't think there's any need to worry. I think I started getting these pains around then. They're just a little worse now.

i had this too.
started about midway thru my pregnancy.
i called it the "kicked in the hoo hoo" feeling :p

Celina- I'm 19 weeks and am experiencing it, started at 18 weeks. This is my 2nd pregnancy though. I definitely wouldn't worry about it. It's called "round ligament pain". As my ob explained, your pelvic bone is literally softening and separating in preparation for birth. I'm having a really hard time with it. I feel like an arthritic old lady. DH can't understand why I walk so funny. With M, I had to take Tylenol throughout the day just to get it tolerable. I was working retail at the time though, so always on my feet. I have a desk job now so I'm hoping it won't be as bad. Nighttime is the worse, it does wake you up everytime you change positions.

I have this so bad, it hurts worse than my labor with DD did, I promise. Sitting on a birth ball helps me so much. The pain comes back soon after I get up, but while sitting there I feel great. HTH!

Oooh, I forgot how much the birthing ball helped. Thanks for reminding me! :D

Celina, I even had some in the beginning. My OB said it was normal.

Off to buy a birthing ball!!!

I'm at 22 weeks, but I have been feeling it for awile. Sometimes, it brings tears to my eyes, and I have a pretty decent pain tolerance. Tylenol doesn't help, but sleeping with pillows between my legs seems to help a bit. I work retail too, so I am always on my feet. After work it hurts waaaay worse than on my days off.
