I'm sorry you're having so much trouble. I felt horrible with my first child.........a girl, but not with my second child, a boy. I've always wondered if FMS is connected somehow to our hormones, and having a girl somehow made it worse?
I had so much stiffness that I could hardly walk. I would have to pull on my pant leg to get my legs into the car. I could barely get out of bed in the mornings. I was so sick all the time.
I didn't have the perineal-area pain that you mentioned. Lots of growth seems to start happening around 20 weeks, so maybe something is just stretching, and with your possible FMS, it feels so much worse?
Fortunately, my daughter was never at risk during pregnancy, but I sure thought I would die! Where exactly do you think your pain is coming from?
Just make sure you're seeing the right doc for all this pain. Hopefully it will subside soon.
You have my sympathy/empathy in feeling so bad, but yet having to take care of another little one. Good luck to you!
P.S. There's something some women with FMS get, called Vulvadynia. It sounds like that's what you have. Google it and see what you think.
