Has anyone had this?
It's a really intense pain that comes and goes right at the base of my spine! I can't get a DR app until the end of week so just wondered if it was anything to worry about?

I'm only 10+3 today but been having it getting steadily worse for about a week!!

I have this too, I'm 13+2. Sitting in my office chair seems to be the main trigger. When I stand up it's like a knife stabbing in my tailbone and I can't straighten up without it hurting.

Have been told (by colleagues) that it's just part of pregnancy apparently. Ligaments stretching and pelvis separating and all that. It hurts like hell though!

Let me know if your doc comes up with an explanation and anything you can do to relieve it.
