Does relaxin loosen all muscles / ligaments and bones in body during pregnancy as well as the pelvic area? Thanks

Yes: though of course it is evolutionarily programmed to help you through childbirth by working specifically on the pelvic ligaments. However, you are probably at increased risk for sprains etc. during this time period, both for this reason and because your balance may be somewhat off. So be careful! I would certainly avoid backbends specifically and use extra care in any exercise regimen. ...Read more

I keep feeling tingling sensation in my pelvic area. More of pelvic bone area is that an early pregnancy sign or is my period coming soon?

Interesting: Localized nerve dsfunction due to compression of the nerve itself or its tiny blood supply leads to intermittent parasthesias (tingling). Uterine fibroids, cysts and orthopedic conditions are among the many things that can cause this. I would see the gyn as they are best at doing a pelvic exam and knowing when order studies (ultrasound, x-ray, mri), and when to refer you to a specialist. ...Read more

I got checked for an etopic pregnancy and they did blood tests and a pelvic exam does that mean I'm pregnant?

No: It only means you're pregnant if they found a significant amount of pregnancy hormone in your blood or if they did an ultrasound to actually look to see if there is an embryo in one of your fallopian tubes (this is what would be an ectopic pregnancy) and there is one present. A pelvic exam is looking at your cervix and feeling for increased pain in the lower abdomen. Checking does not mean you are. ...Read more
