Re: bad pain in pubic bone
I had it with my first pregnancy and none of my friends knew what I meant, and I've had it with this pregnancy as well. It is normal, my Dr explained it's because when you are pregnant, your body releases a hormone that softens all your ligaments so that your bones can move and make room for the baby and when labor starts the bones can spread. When you are laying on your sides to sleep, you are putting pressure on those ligaments and bones, sometimes enough to make the bones overlap...in my first pregnancy I could actually hear my bones rubbing together when I rolled over...haven't heard it yet this time other than the bones popping...anyway I sleep with a full body pillow folded over in half wedged between my thighs...as close to my pubic bones as possible, but not supporting my knees as that takes the pressure off the bones...I remember later in my first pregnancy I also used a heating pad set on low...but only use the kind with auto shutoff... I would have the heating pad next to my sore bones then the body pillow to take the pressure off the bones but also to hold the heating pad in place. That seemed to work well. Other than that it does go away shortly after delivery once all your bones return to their proper places. Goodluck.
