Pelvic Pain at 24 Weeks

So I am at 24 weeks now and for the past couple weeks I have been having a lot pain in the pelvic/groin area.  It is most painful when I get up and walk after having sat for a while.  Or if I walk for a long time I get the pain too.  I also get it really bad when I turn or change positions in bed.  It feels like a lot of heavy pressure.  Has anyone else experianced this?

I told my doctor about it at my last appointment and so she checked my cervix and said everything was fine.  It really doesn't feel fine though and I wanted to know if anyone else has experianced this.

It's probably pubic symphysis disorder. Google it and it will give you some information. I had it my whole pregnancy. Started getting painful around 12 weeks and only got worse. Try sleeping with a pillow between your knees it helped alot. Keep your knees together when rolling over in bed. Does it hurt when you put on your pants lifting one leg? Sitting on the edge of your bed will help.

Thanks for the comments.  I think it is pubic symphysis disorder.  Pretty much fits exactly what I am feeling.  I will try the pillow between the legs.  It does hurt when lifting my leg to put on pants so I have already started putting on clothes sitting down.  

I have felt what you are going through too littlemisscvl.  I have had that pain since about 10 weeks into my pregnancy.  I still have it but have learned to just deal with it.  It comes and goes.  Good luck and congratulations on your pregnancy.
