Hello and welcome to MH.
I have heard of this happening to others. My sons girlfriend had an Epidural when in labor and she also had the symptoms you speak of. I have to say though, hers did not last as long as yours. I would say that at the end of the second month, her discomfort ad disappeared.
I would suggest two things.
1.) Talk with your OB-GYN about the pain
2.) Chech out the Pregnancy Forum.
I'm sure that you will get excellent advise from both.
Take care and good luck,

I know of people who have had this problem too and it is horrible pain. Please talk to your Dr and make sure she knows that this is happening so you can get help.
This is a wonderful time in your life and you certainly do not need this kind of pain interrupting the wonderful bonding moments!
