So the past couple weeks ive been feeling this really uncomfortable pressure in my uterine area. I keep telling myself its normal and probably just the baby growing a lot these past couple weeks. But since I have a doctors appointment today I figured I would google it to see if its something worth mentioning to my doctor. Now im worried that I may be having contractions and that something could be wrong. I heard my LOs heartbeat last night and it was good 145 but now ill spend the next hour or so stressed out worried that something will go wrong at the appointment or that this could be a sign of incompetent uterus or my body going into early labor.... Anyone else have this pressure and it not be anything but baby growing and all was fine....
Stretching pains can feel a bit like cramps. You might also be having Braxton Hicks, which are mostly painless - although uncomfortable - practice contractions. You'll know it when you're having real contractions. You won't need to ask if you're in labor lol.
I had it pretty bad two weeks ago but it improved more or less after I spent 2-3 days laying down a lot and drinking water.
I still feel it now but it's less severe. I also remember feeling this way in previous successful pregnancies that went full term, but I don't remember how far along I was
Did you mention it to the doctor? What did they say?
Oh man. If I roll in the bed, if I get up too fast, if I sneeze, pretty much any quick movement I am SO achey. Totally freaked me out too, I worry nonstop that somethings going wrong with the baby! However I think this is totally normal. This is the farthest along I've ever been in a pregnancy, and thinking about all the growth/movement of organs/etc is crazy!! Our bodies are just adjusting. Don't stress!
