I think I broke my butt! LOL I'm 11 weeks PP and my tailbone is still killing me! Sometimes it hurts so dang bad that even when I am laying down and there is no pressure on it, it still sends shooting pains up my butt and spine. I talked to my OB about it and all he said was give it time and take anti inflamitories. I have been and even those cant touch the pain of this. I have some T3's left over from my surgery I had in November, and those dont help either. :( So I have been asking for a donut pillow for Xmas. Have any other ladies hurt their tailbones during childbirth? And if so, how long did it take to heal up and stop hurting.

did you do anything to help the pain or just went through the pain?

Are you sure it's your tailbone??
Shortly after I had DD1, I thought I had hurt my tailbone. I couldn't sit , stand, lay down without excruciating pain. Even the T3's wouldn't touch the pain. I made a trip to the emerg & it turned out to be a pilonidal (sp) cyst. An infection that had to be lanced & packed. It was one of the worst experiences of my life.

eep that sounds horrible. I'm not 100% sure its my tailbone. I brought up the pain in my butt to my OB and he said that some women come in a long time after with pain in their tailbones still so I just went off of that.
