This might sound ridiculous but I'm 14 weeks with my first pregnancy and my right hip and coccyx are so painful at the moment, it feels like I've pulled the whole area slightly out of joint but I know I haven't!
Have any other mums/mums to be experienced this kind of pain at this stage?! I've head about pregnant ladies having hip and back problems in the later stages but not this early!
Thanks in advance xx
P.S; slight build and no previous hip:back problems of that has any relevance!
Also, are you starting to get a bump? If you are you may be tilting your pelvis and it kills your lower back. An exercise from the physios I find helps is to stand against a wall with knees slightly bent (don't squat) and feet a shoulder width apart. Back flat against the wall. Instant relief for me!
I have scoliosis (curved spine) which means that my bump is very pronounced because of the curve. I had to hold myself in a Pilates 'neutral spine' position which feels very odd but does relieve the pressure. I had terrible back pain from 13/14 weeks and saw a chiropractor who helped me manage it (not NHS). The midwife I spoke to was quite dismissive so I went private and already had a chiropractor that I'd seen before for back shoulder hip issues.
Yes, I had this and managed it with help of a chiropractor. It's unlikely that be the bump so early on, more the hormones which cause everything to loosen up and pick up any existing problems you didn't know you had. If you can see a private chiropractor do, and Pilates helps too. I'm 14 weeks now with dc2 and although it's a bit better than last time it's already bloody painful and so discouraging to know there's still so long to go!
I'm 14w and I injured my pelvis/coccyx a few years ago. I mentioned to the mw that the pain had reoccurred and I've been referred to the obstetric physiotherapy team for it. Worth seeing if you can get a referral if it persists.
