Painful, heavy feeling in lower uterus when walking sometimes-HAVE to sit down...?


My mw said it could be braxton hicks but I really don't think they are.. it started around 9 weeks and happens about once a week-ill be walking (not far-ie a few steps) and ill feel like I need to hold in/up my uterus with my hands to relieve the pressure-the feeling is hard to describe but it's painful and goes as soon as I sit down-and continues as I walk, doesn't subside-so of course I hobble asap to my car/house/chair etc. The pain is like a heavy sharpish pressure right above pubic bone and spreads across the bottom part of the uterus..and sometimes just into the beginning of my outer lady lips! Im only worried if obviously it means something to keep an eye on but don't know what it could be? No apparent tightening or hardening when it happens.

Try one of those bands that supports your belly, you should be able to find one on most websites. It may just be putting too much pressure on your pelvis.

i get that too and its mostly when im tossing and turning in bed or walking around for a long period of time. My doc told me it was just growing pains and to just try to rest as much as possible through out the day to relieve it..its been going on with me since 19 weeks off and on. I believe my doctor cause idk what else it would be besides stretching and growing..

Thank you-ive definitely heard pains whilst moving around in bed are probably RLP...but with mine im sometimes not even doing much-I could have been sitting all day then just pop to the shop! For it to go on sitting it must be some form of pressure...maybe I get it when having a growth spurt

Spd?

I got diagnosed at 12wk but was feeling it before that.

Didn't happen often, didn't make difference if I was exerting myself or taking it easy.

Felt like a mixture of a kick to the lady bits, and a really deep pressure.

Ive been getting this........it honestly feels like if I open my legs its ALL going to fall out. And I can feel everything pressing down very very heavy into my pelvis. Sometimes my pubic bone hurts others it doesnt and its my bum - tmi - but I can literally feel a pulse in my butt with this heavy heavy feeling.

I had this for a few days a few weeks ago and it was so bad at the end of the day I had to lie down for 2 hrs just to begin to feel better. but it seems to have gone away for the most part, I think it had something to do with my body adjusting to a growth spurt lo was having, plus being on my feet too much those days! gl!!

Sounds like SPD, but the stretching can be pretty uncomfortable sometimes.

Think I might have the same problem as you, I'm fine when sitting down too. Even walking from my desk to the copier is hard work most days. Most of my pain is in my pubic bone. I'm walking like I'm 42 weeks pregnant not 23 and I've been like this for a few weeks now. I feel ok in the morning but get worse as the day goes on.
I am thinking its SPD, I'll wait till my 28 week appointment then speak to my midwife

I had pain like this all week and just saw the doctor on Wednesday! I couldn't get up and down the stairs in my house and the pain you describe is the exact same!

Anyways, he told me there are round ligaments in that area too which could be causing the pressure and pain. He said it could be the baby's position. He said I could just need more rest and to stay off my feet as much a possible. I hadn't had any pain like this when pregnant with my daughter so I was a bit worried!!!
