tailbone pain?

I'm 8 weeks today (yay!) and have been pretty much symptom free so far... except for pain in what feels like my tailbone area. I swear I noticed it not long after I found out I was pregnant and it's slowly become worse, and now it hurts when I walk, bend over, etc. It's not unbearable by any stretch of the imagination but it is noticeable and uncomfortable. I worked some self-diagnosing google magic and read that it's very possible that it's because my pelvic/hip bones are slowly shifting and putting different weight on that area. 


Have any of you ladies experienced this? If so, did it eventually go away?

My lower back has been sore, but I attribute that more to my mattress than to the rearranging of organs and such in my body.  Check with your OB if you don't get any questions on here.

Interesting, Moore! That's what's strange about this - I can't say it's really my back... after all, I don't think a raspberry sized baby is putting a lot of strain on me yet. :) It more feels like something has shifted in my tailbone area. So strange. But yes, definitely going to check at my next doctor's appt on May 9th!

I had the exact same thing! I was about 11 or 12 weeks when mine really started to hurt, which happened to be right around the time I started to show a little bit. I heard that the uterus is somehow connected to the tailbone and I already have a crooked spine so I'm sure the changes can set it off. But I've been going to the chiropractor ever since and I'm not sure if that's what's helped but it's not nearly as bad now. So if you're able to see a chiropractor, that might help you!

I get sore when sitting for too long at work so I make a point to get up often to walk around and stretch.


I just started going to the chiropractor too and that's helping along w/ monthly pre-natal massages. :)

Girl.... that sounds like 'Posterior Pelvic Pain'! I got early on & still have it... It sucks, but luckily for me it only seems to 'flare up' when I am really active (long hike, workout, deep cleaning the house, etc.)... Sitting on a yoga ball helps or if you lay on the floor with your legs in the air (resting on a wall or couch), it loosens up your pelvis.
