Is This Broad Ligament Pain Or

I've have sharp pain in my right thigh that began last Thursday, lasted for two days, and then came back yesterday. The pain seems greater in my mid-thigh but does travel to my groin and knee cap. At its worst, I've felt it all the way to my foot. I'm 19 weeks pregnant. Is it possible this is Broad Ligament Pain? I understand BLP typically ends around 18 weeks, which is when this pain started. I ask because I fractured by back in several places, several years ago and was told it could cause problems if/when I'm pregnant. I'm just wondering if these symptoms are typical of BLP and I should suffer through with Tylenol, or the indication of something more serious and I should contact my orthopedist. Thank you.

I don't know what this is, but I've had back problems since age 12. I've had them worse since my epidural with my first. I have also had these pains, only about two weeks. From week 18-20. I couldn't even sit for a while without feeling the pains grow toward my foot. The pains were on my left, from the top of my thigh, reaching to my foot. I fell over a baby gate last week, and caught myself with my left knee before my stomach hit the floor and gate. I must have pulled something in my back. Because now I have horrible sharp pains, like a knife, in my lower-mid section of my leftside of my back. Sorry I can't help. Just thought I'd let you know that you're not alone, and the pain did start late, and stop. Not sure if it's because of the fall or not though.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It sounds like this might be trauma related and not BLP. Glad to hear you are feeling better.
