I almost feel like it's a pinched nerve or something. Being rectal pain, it's not exactly something that's easy to talk about LOL. I went in to see if it was a hemorrhoid and they don't think it is. So...I'm just playing a waiting game now.

And babies are usually still breech around this time... I wouldn't think that would cause the pain because everyone has breech babies in the 2nd tri...? Let me know what you find out... I have my ultrasound in a few days so hopefully everything will show alright!
had OB appt this morning. nothing good for me i'm afraid. baby is a little underweight and is sitting abnormally low. doc is admitting me to hospital and i start the steroid injections next thursday. let me know what happens with you.

Oh no, I'm so sorry. Are the steroid injections given to make him grow? And can they do anything to get him to change position? Seems like the pain is related to the baby sitting low and not him being underweight, right? Hope it all goes well.

yeah the pain is from him being low. his low weight is just one more bump in the road. they are starting the steroid injections at 24wks to jump start his lungs in case he comes earlier than planned... which is already early at 34wks if my heart can hold out that long.

Update from my doc: she didn't seem concerned about the pain, but told me to go to a physical therapist if it doesn't get better. Frustrating! Fortunately, the baby is doing fine.

Colorado Baby- Good to hear. I might talk to my chiropractor tomorrow about showing me some exercises or stretches that might help. I'll let you know if anything works.

MyButterflies- Let me know how things go for you.

AFM, I have my u/s on Wednesday so hopefully everything is ok.

Steph, did your chiro give you any advice? I'm thinking about going to one for this pain that has subsided a bit, but is still there.

Hey, my u/s went well, the baby looked great and he is healthy! As for the back pain, I still don't know what it is. My chiropractor didn't seem too concerned as during pregnancy the weight of the baby makes the lower back arch causing pressure and pain on the muscles/spine. She told me about a few stretches, one is called the diamond stretch, where you stand with your back against the wall and bring your arms up while pushing back against the wall all the way up into a diamond shape, and back down. Kind of hard to describe. It seems like it's not a lower back stretch, but it actually targets those muscles.

Since my pain is more of a crampy thing, she also told me to up my calcium/magnesium intake... I take a cal/mag supplement when I start to feel the cramps and it does help a bit.

MyButterflies- how are you and the baby doing now?
