    I have a really bad dull ache in my coccyx.....been there for about a week or so, I thought it was part of my growing pains. Now, as it went over the weekend, I think it's my chair at work.

    Any ideas on how to make it go away? I already have a cushion to support my lumbar because otherwise it wouldn't support me at all.

    It's really bad and I have trouble standing up.....seems to have come back in the space of 1 day! :cry:

    Oh my god I have this really badly! I've found the only way I can make it easier to stand up is if I lean forward first. I think it curls it around a bit more or something. If I don't do it then it really hurts to stand up!

    Hi there, I had what I thought was hip pain and it turned out that the right side of my pelvis had rotated forward a little, it was extremely painful and was making it impossible for me to sleep or sit or walk about......... awful......... I was like a granny!! but my MW had refered me to physio and I was there last wed and by that evening I was vitually pain free and able to walk normally (in heels as I was at a wedding evening do!) the woman is a genius!! I'm to go back next week and I want to hug her!! LOL!!

    You should def call your MW and tell them about this and see if they can get you referred to a physio who specialises in pregnant women like mine. Take care!!

    The tail bone.. at the top of your bum crack :)

    Probably sciatica? I get the same sort of pain, it can be terrible.. especially after lying down or sitting still/at a funny angle for long periods.
