Pubic symphysis separation
That’s the explanation for the pain. Apparently the ligaments in my hips and pubic area are so loose that its causing pain and inflammation. My doctor said that her only suggestion for remedy was a band to “hold my hips together” and Motrin.
When I asked her why Motrin is specifically on the DO NOT TAKE list, she said there is a window during pregnancy they do not want us to take it. Then, when it’s safer, like now, I have to tell her when I take it regularly as it can decrease the fluid around the babies. She said, “if it helps for you to take every 6 hours, that’s fine, just let me know so I can schedule fluid checks on the babies”. She also said that she was going to change the list to say NO MOTRIN UNLESS ADVISED.
So I’m sitting here with my belly support band on hoping that I won’t have to buy another one. This one was already $30 as it is.
I’m also getting ready to take a Motrin.
Here’s to hoping that this helps! Or it’s gonna be a long 14 weeks….
