I do not know if one has to do with the other, but I am gonna ask.
About a year ago, I fell down stairs, and landed smack dab on my tail bone at first and then kind of glided on my back down the rest. I never went to the er, I had no insurance at all at the time. For days it was the most painful thing ever. Sitting made me cry, trying to get up from sitting made me cry. It felt very much stiff for days. Sleeping was painful. It got a lot better, and throughout the year, if I sat on the floor sometimes I would feel a bit of pain.
Now I am just over 15 weeks pregnant, and my back seems to hurt fairly often. Especially when walking for more than 10 minutes, like in the grocery store. It hurts in the spot that I fell, the whole area aches, and I can feel the bone aching. Can the baby be causing more pressure on that area? Should I alert my OB to this? I have a strong feeling that when I fell I injured the bone itself. I wouldn't be surprised because the kind of pain I was in after falling was horrible. What should I do?
