Any tips for relieving pain in tail-bone?

Hi All,

24 weeks pregnant and I'm starting to get really rather uncomfortable at work. I have a desk-job and am finding that sitting in my chair all day gives me nasty pain in my tailbone.

Has anyone found a magic cure for this? Exercises? Cushions? Posture?!

I can't afford to work at home on my ball very often so am going to have to try and find a solution!

Thanks!

Ive got the same thing and went to the physio on Friday. She suggested sitting on an exercise ball rather than an office chair.

She also warned me off the ring cushions as apparently they concentrate force on the area- she instead suggested making a two piles of cushions with a gap down the middle so there is no direct pressure on the tailbone itself.
