Is it normal to have this much pelvic pressure at 16 weeks? I had my son 5 years ago and I remember a LOT of this, but much later in pregnancy...maybe like 36 weeks an on until delivery. It's so sore that it hurts when I get up to go to the bathroom at night and during the day when I walk around. I already feel like I'm waddling and I'm barely showing!!! help!

I am having the same issue. This is my first, and I feel that I am carrying him very low. When I get up to go to the bathroom it's a miserable feeling. I feel like I'm not going to make it!

I know exactly how you feel! It has been bothering me for about a month now and I am only 19 weeks along. I spoke with my drs office and she told me I can take Tylenol every 2-4 hours. I don't really care for taking medicine at all while being pregnant so I only take it if it is unbearable!

I'm pregnant with my third, and I find that each pregnancy the pressure starts earlier and earlier. I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow and definitely have the pregnant waddle going on, lol.

I had this with my daughter. By 20 weeks it became so painful to walk that my doctor put me on bedrest. He called it preclampsia. Talk to your doctor. HTH-
