I was given a new pair of maternity pants as an early Christmas present this afternoon, and as I bent down to try them on, I realized my inner thigh was extremely sensitive. I was fully expecting to find a giant, black/brown/blue/yellow bruise (I have an older child, so I get bumped into periodically), but there was nothing there. I mean, it hurts, and I have absolutely no idea why. Even running my hand over the area is quite painful. It definitely wasn't there when I got dressed this morning.
Could it be a blood clot? I Googled "inner thigh pain pregnancy" and had some scary !!!Blood clot!!! results. I don't even know what to look for.. I called my doctor's office, which is closed and leaves no number for emergency/worrisome scenarios. Just a message to go to the ER if you're faced with something frightening.
For what it's worth, I'm 29 weeks. The pain is very similar to a bad bruise or a pulled muscle. I haven't done a single strenuous thing in the past few days aside from minor Christmas shopping and waiting in line for an hour for my child to see Santa last night, which I would hope wouldn't result in terrible leg pain the next day. The pain is not in my groin area or in my knee. It's almost exactly in the middle of my inner thigh.
