lower back pain/rectal pressure
 
I feel like this is way too early for me to be getting this... but I have horrible crampy/achy pain in my lower back and pressure downwards near my rectum and sacrum. It hurts whether I stand up or lay down. I thought maybe I wasn't drinking enough water, or was constipated, but even drinking a lot of water or after going to the bathroom it still hurts. I did not have any of this with my first pregnancy. Anyone get anything like this during the second tri?

Sounds like your sciatic nerve too. Its really common in pregnancy

i have! just the other day i was doubled over in tears cause the pain was so bad. the pressure isn't as bad laying down as it is when i stand up... then it feels like Liam is gonna fall out. it's mostly the lower back pain that is really bad. i get a lot of period like cramps with it too. didn't have anything like this with my other 3. had a level II U/S yesterday and everything looked great. cervix is fine. all it showed was that i currently have placenta previa and the doc said that could be causing the pain and that bubs is breech which could be the reason for the pressure down low. i'm not sure if i'm satisfied with those answers tho so i see my OB tomorrow morning.

Yes, I'm in terrible pain and went to urgent care. They told me to wait until my OB appt. this week, but it hurts to sit, lay down and even walk sometimes.

I don't get any sharp pains, or pain down the leg so I don't think it's sciatica. All of this pain is more achy and pressure-like. Sometimes like a crampy feeling which I never know if it is my bowel or uterus or what.

MyButterflies- That is exactly how I feel, like my insides and the baby are going to fall out when I stand up. I wonder if it's just because the baby is lying low? That's good that you u/s didn't show any problem, and hopefully the placenta previa will correct itself, they say most times it does by the end of the pregnancy. 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!

Anyone know of any exercises/stretches to relieve the pain?

How many weeks are you? What does the pain feel like? Hope everything goes well at your appt and that you get some relief soon :(

that's exactly why i'm not satisfied with those answers... just doesn't seem likely. so although i don't really have any insight as to why i feel like this i at least know that bubs is doing well. and they were able to reassure me that he wasn't really going to fall out :haha: i will let you know what my OB says tomorrow. fingers crossed for your U/S and if you find anything that helps relieve your pain let me know. I'll do the same.

Thank you! I'm 16 weeks now, and the pain is shooting, sharp pain that lasts for a few seconds. I really hope you feel better soon, too. I'll let you know what my doc says tomorrow.
