Fanny hurts

Almost 35 weeks and feeling like I've been kicked in the fanny.
Kind of feels like I'm bruised from the waist down to thighs.
Anyone else had this unpleasantness? Getting fed up now

Is it your pelvis?

Hannabee123 Thu 16-Nov-17 23:23:14

Could be I have no clue just in pain moving and sitting in certain positions and can't get comfortable sad

Aww there's a lot of pressure down there in the last few weeks. I felt sore and heavy down there too. Maybe a well wrapped ice pack?

A friend of mine used to call this cricket bat fanny! I.e. it feels like you’ve stood with your legs open whilst someone whacked you with a cricket bat! 😂
The joys of pregnancy!!
Hope it eases soon.

That sounds so accurate 😂😂😭

Hot water bottle or a wheat bag thing between your legs? I mean I know your probably not supposed to but i did! And paracetamol.
And yes cricket bat fanny is a good descriptiongrin

It’s just the pressure. Don’t worry. It’s horrible, I know.

Hannabee123 Fri 17-Nov-17 06:59:12

I still have a couple of weeks to go yet too oh dear 😭

KellyMarieTunstall2 Fri 17-Nov-17 08:27:49

I get this at the end of the day, heaviness and my pubic bone throbs. :-(

You are not alone flowers I’m 39+2 and get this and a serious case of the fanny daggers daily! Lol

Hannabee123 Fri 17-Nov-17 08:35:53

You are so close to meeting your little one now though! Aww 😃
Well I'm relieved im not the only one suffering it does just feel like someone's whacked you between the legs guess it's surprised me I always thought it would be more sort of hip pain instead of fanny pain hmm

Oh crikey, yes I have this. I'm only 28 weeks though shock

Also, it's not really acceptable to say 'my fanny hurts' like you might announce a headache so no one can offer sympathy.

My sister and I are both pregnant and we refer to this as "lightning crotch" lol

Phoenix76 Fri 17-Nov-17 23:33:50

My midwife actually referred to it as lightning crotch sassy306 so there must be something in that! I was telling the midwife it was intolerable and she said yes, it's well known! I asked her what on earth was causing that and she said they believe it's the cervix moving about, oh the joys of pregnancy, I had this delightful experience with both my pregnancies. The good news is I can chuckle about it now, not helpful sorry!

Lightning crotch 😂 I have both fanny pain and rib pain now. The whinging continues 😓
