Labour After Breaking Tailbone Anyone Done This

My last labour with my daughter cased my tailbone to break, which I've been having problems with ever since. I am now 24 weeks pg with another boy (have two already) and am feeling the pains in that region already. What concerns me is because I was only 45 min in labour with her, and am planning a home birth this time around, I'm not sure wether the tailbone will break again or if it will affect the labour somehow. Wil it make it even more painful, if that's possible?! Has anyone been through labour after their coxycc bone was broken? What hapened?

I'm not sure what to tell you, but I'm about to find out for myself. I either broke or severly bruised my tailbone (they wouldn't do an x-ray because I was pregnant) a few months ago. It still hurts and aches when I sit too long and my Dr. said it could possibly make labor more painful. I'm 37w4d, 2cm, and my Dr. is stripping my membranes tomorrow. I guess I'll find out soon if this delivery hurts more. :)

Good luck to you! I'd be very interested to hear how it all goes for you rebecca278...How did you hurt your tailbone? You didn't take a tumble, did you? I don't think I'd like to have my membranes stripped, so I hope it goes smoothly for you...:-)

I was carrying a huge load of laundry down my bas____nt stairs and either stepped on something or missed a stair. I landed on my b___t and then continued to thump down the next 3 or 4 stairs on my b___t. It frickin HURT!! Luckily I feel backwards and not forwards!! I can't believe it's still so dang sore after 2 + months. That's been the worst part of this pregnancy. I've had my membranes stripped before, and it wasn't that bad for me so I'll probably do it again. It didn't start labor for me, but it did help soften my cervix and dilate me another cm and a half. If it does start labor, hopefully I'll get to the hospital in plenty of time for my epidural. :)

Hopefully it won't continue to hurt either afterwards, like it did for me - could barely stand. I would have been so worried to have fallen like that, luckily as you said, at least on yout b___t. My oungest turns four this Saturday, so that's FOUR years I've had to deal with the pain, especailly during periods. So I'm not looking forward to the after effects this time. At least the epidural will numb everything!

I broke my tailbone when I delivered my 1st. 2 hours of pushing. He is 10 years old now. I am expecting my 4th. I did not get the intense pain after I delivered my 2nd and third. It hurts when I sit to long but I do not have the intense pain like right after the first delivery I was told there is nothing they can do to fix it. I hope this makes sense. (I was able to move and walk just fine after the other deliveries)
