Hi jillie81, this is caused by the hormone relaxin ( it think its called) it is produce during pregnancy to enable the pelvis bones to make way for the baby during delivery. The down side to this hormone is that it affects every ligament in the body making your joints easy to displace, this is why doctors recommend that you stop lifting heavy weights, and stop lifting things over your head etc during pregnancy. The only advice I can give you is to take it easy so that you do not injure yourself.
hey, the last couple of weeks my pelvic bone keeps popping in and out of place. Has anyone else had this and will it affect labour??? Any help would be appreciated.....
I did. My legs kept giving out. And as the previous poster said it is caused by the hormone relaxin. There really isn't anything to do for it except to take it easy if you can. And in my situation it didn't affect my labor.
Thanks for your help guys! I had an appointment yesterday and my ob said the same thing - unfortunately there's nothing we can do!!!! I'm glad it didnt affect your labour - I hope it doesnt affect mine!
I am 37 weeks pregnant and I have been experiencing the same thing for about 3 or 5 weeks now. sometimes it hurts but sometimes it makes my pain go away for atleast a day. But it only happens to me when i am in bed. but the pelvic pain is almost constant. Is what is happening to me the same thing that you guys are going through. I know someone who actually had part of her pelvic bone shetter while giving birth so i am abvioulsy worried.
