Groin/leg/pelvic pain


Last few days I've been having this soreness. It feels like I've been sitting on a horse. If hurts up both sides of my inner thighs, but more on the right side. It hurts above my pelvic bone. Walking, sitting, standing all really hurt. My right leg hurts down into my calf also. Of course I googled and blood clot came up so now I'm terrified. Even around my vagina hurts. Anyone have any advice? I'll call my dr tomorrow to move my appt up if it's still bad in the morning but for now I'm freaking out! I did do some exercises yesterday to see if that helped but I'm not sure if that helped or made it worse.

Seems a little bit better today. Still soreness in between my legs and down my thighs but it's more dull. I'll be calling my dr soon when their office opens opens

Might it be Pelvic Girdle Pain (also called SPD)?

It's all right! Stay away from Dr Google! He's always trying to kill us. haha. Like PP said, it sounds like SPD (probably combined with some stretching). Both are painful, but neither will harm your pregnancy. I have it, too, and have experienced it with all five of my pregnancies (and for more than a month postpartum each time). Keep your legs together, avoid squatting, pushing or lifting heavy, or anything else that strains your pelvis. If you can stop making it worse (the weight of your growing baby WILL make it worse, but your lifestyle doesn't have to), you'll be in much better shape. SPD is safe to Google, and you'll get tons of information on what you should and shouldn't be doing.

I called my dr and she said round ligament pain and didn't seem concerned at all. She said baths and Tylenol. I'm pretending she said to avoid in the in laws. they just stress me out. Thanks for the replies!

Sounds just like the pain I have with SPD.

Avoiding the inlaws is definitely the best treatment!

Oh yes! I have been having the exact same issue and then had pretty sure a yeast infection brought on by my Glucose test! I thought I pulled a muscle during my daughters first soccer weekend but I am going on 3 weeks of this pain. It started me waddling! Some days it is better and some days it is worse. I am going to mention it at my next appointment.

To echo others - it's SPD and I am experiencing it this pregnancy too. Unfortunately it won't go away until baby is out but you can google SPD and find loads of information on how to handle it/not make it worse. It's not harmful, it's just all the ligaments in your pelvis being stretched. My babies head is 2/5 engaged which also doesn't help.

When I roll over in bed every night I actually hear and feel my pelvis click, ouch!
