OMG! My Tailbone!

I am 14 wks pregnant and I have been having lots of pain in my tail bone for about 5-6 weeks. Told my Dr at my 9 wk US and he said it was to early to have tailbone pain. Whatever DOC! I am! and it is getting worse.  I got a Nursing pillow and I sit on it with the open end at my tailbone to keep the pressure off but it doesn't help much at all. I was wondering does anyone else have or had this problem? and what did you do to relieve the pain?

I have this same problem! This is my third pregnancy and the tailbone pain started earlier with each pregnancy. I am almost 20 weeks and the pain is unbearable at times. If I sit on a hard chair, I use a pillow, but after 5-10 min it starts hurting again. Laying or sitting in a reclined position is the only thing that helps. I have never gotten full relief until I gave birth...I know...not very encouraging!! =/
Just keep using a pillow whenever you sit down. I wish I had more advice on to relieve it.
I also get hip and pelvic pain as well.
