It's probably the public bones shifting in preparation for labor. They have the separate in order for the baby's head to fit through

I have the same issue, but I am just shy of 17 weeks. It's caused by your pubic bones rubbing against each other. My dr told me that if the pain gets any worse than it already is, she will prescribe me pain killers for it. She always suggested I get a girdle to take some of the pressure off my bones.



I would ask your dr if she can prescribe anything stronger than Tylenol to handle the pain.

But I thought that's what happens during labor. How long does it hurt til you actually have the baby?

Unfortunately it will probably hurt right up until you have your little one.

You just think you're hurting now, it would be excruciating for it to happen all at once in labor. OMG I can't even imagine lol. It happens slowly and gradually up until you give birth.

Its been hurting for about four weeks now and has gotten a stronger pain every week it hurts more and longer periods of time I just rather get induced and get this over with it cause I can barely walk as it is I just wanted to know if it makes her come sooner or is there no time limit on how long the bones hurt. My ob doctor doesn't let me know anything everytime I bring up my pain he says too much walking but I haven't been cause I barely can and I'm very uncomfortable

Dont get induced. It will increase your chances of getting a c section. I understand the pain that you are having. I could barely walk when I was pregnant with my youngest. It is end of pregnancy pains.

Is there anyway I could get her to come faster without being induced? I don't want her to come til about 38 weeks though

Nothing. You might want to wait until 40 weeks. I know it sucks. trust me. for the last 3 weeks of my pregnancy with my youngest, I could not walk, and when I did I cried. And walking will speed things up, but your body wont go until its ready.

What these other ladies said. I have been having problems for like 2 1/2 months now. o.O I got one of those support belts, and it really does help, if you wear it for a while!

I had trouble with my first pregnancy, and now with this one, it started at 15 weeks. When I do too much walking, or too many chores, or sometimes even if I just sit crooked, it aggravates the pain. I have learned that sleeping in a recliner keeps me aligned all night and helps prevent pain during the day. That has worked wonders for me.
