Pubic bone pain & lower ab stabbing pain?


Hi ladies!

For the past few days, I have been having terrible stabbing/sharp pain on my lower left side. I at first thought it was trapped gas, but I've taken simethicone and, now that the gas is gone, it still hurts. It hurts very low down, just above my pubic bone. They are irregular, and I don't feel my uterus tightening up at all, so I don't think they are contractions. Just a random stabbing pain that has kept me in bed/lying around for the past few days. I actually woke up in the middle of the night and they made me cry.

Also, my left hip/groin/pubic bone area has been hurting terribly when I lift my leg, put weight on it, or try to roll over in bed. It doesn't feel like muscle pain--it feels like bone pain. I know things are supposed to stretch out as you get closer to baby coming, but this is so bad that I'm barely able to hobble around the house.

Anyone else have any experience with either of these things? I'll be sure to mention them to my obgyn on Wednesday during my appointment, but I figured I'd ask here first.

Thanks in advance!!

Oh, and baby sits so, so, so low down--so maybe this is what is causing the stabbing pain? Maybe?

Hey there. Yes, I had pretty much the same problem over Xmas. Doc though it was a UTI and gave me antibiotics, but I think it was muscle strain and the way the baby sits. Some mornings I feels heavy in that area, while other mornings I feel fine. x

Yeah, I was thinking possible UTI, too. Maybe I'm just having a big growth spurt and things are stretching way too fast, lol.

I have been having this to the point oh says if i dont mention it this wed he will, my baby is also really low down, I was reading posts about anterior placenta as I also have this (and didnt in my last 3 pregnancies so thought maybe the stabbing groin pain had something to do with this) when you find out put up a post and I will do the same hopefully then we will get some answers xx

Well, OB said that the groin/bone pain is "perfectly normal" and very common. She said it's just your pelvis stretching out to prepare for birth. She said it happened to her with one of her pregnancies, too. I hope you find some relief soon!

I have had these stabbing pains periodically also, on both sides. Mostly when standing up, changing positions, etc. It only lasts a second or two, and then it's gone, so it doesn't affect my activities. I assume it is round ligament pain from uterus stretching out, and haven't worried about it. I also have an anterior placenta, but I think the periodic pains are normal. Yours sound like they are more often though, and also in the hip. Maybe it is a nerve problem. I would ask the MW.
