Read on at your peril ladies. I've had shooting pains up my crotch for the last few days on and off.They make me double over and I can't move for a minute or so.When I do get moving again, I'm stiff and sore up there. The pains got much more frequent this morning and I ended up quite embarrassed in work because I couldn't move for the best part of a half hour.Is this something to do with pelvic pain? Have any of you had this? I'm pretty sure that it's fairly common, so I'd love to know what I can do about it? Any advice or stories would be appreciated :wv

goddietwoshoes, it sounds like a mix of spd (pelvic pain) and something I had myself around the 12/13 week mark, "lightening crotch" :o0 Basically shooting pains in the area of the cervix. All perfectly normal, but not pleasant! How far along are you? If your pelvic pain continues you can get a referral to the phsio dept in your maternity hospital and they'll be able to help. The joys of it all, eh?

Thanks for that Safari Girl. 'Lightning Crotch' couldn't come any closer to describing it, brilliant :o0 :o0 I'm 23 weeks now, and the pains only started last week.Definately a bit better today, no jolts! I have a physio appointment in November, so hopefully I'll not have too much bother between now and then. Thanks again :wv

No problem. There's a lot people don't mention about this pregnancy malarkey. :o0 Glad you're feeling better. :wv
