Pressure like pain/feeling in stomach?


So today I've been feeling a weird pressure like feeling in my lower/mid stomach...almost like I'm being blown up like a balloon from the inside...was wondering if anyone else in their second tri was feeling something similar to this? It's worrying me a little but don't feel like its something to call the doctor over..any input would help put my mind at ease.

Hi,

Someimes pressure can be from an impending bowel movement or the baby is pushing down on your cervix. With pregnancy sometimes there are all sorts of different feeling that come with it, sometimes they mean nothing and other times they shouldn't be overlooked. If its a continuous pressure, I would advise you to call the doctor just to be on the safe side. Tomorrow is a Holiday and most places are closed. Better to call and have peace of mind.

I'm not sure. I remember feeling this with my son, but I'm not sure when or where exactly the sensation was. It could maybe be a Braxton Hicks, or yes it could be the baby pushing or even stretching/growing.

I have this quite often! Not sure what causes it, but it usually goes away overnight. I seem to notice it most at night. For me it's usually pressure under where my bra sits, but it's just like you described it "like a balloon being blown up". Part of me wonders if it has something to do with the fact that I am still *trying* to suck in my belly so I am exhausting those muscles and not doing any good! When I consciously release it I can tell a difference! Hopefully it lets up for you shortly!

I had this today too! I also had some cramping yesterday which I am sure was just my uterus stretching so I'm thinking it all ties in together.
