Having a lot of pressure
dadslilhrlygrl posted:
Okay this is my third baby but it has been six years since I had my last daughter so I can't completely remember anything. I'm 29 wks 5dys and having a lot pressure down there. It don't ease up whether I lay down or stand up or just sitting. Sometimes it last few minutes and sometimes for an hour or so then eases up. It is random as well. I don't have to be doing anything at all. Any advise???

We are about neck and neck, i will be 30 weeks on tuesday. When was you last check up? Make sure you let your doctor know whats going on, call him no matter what time of day. If your working they may put you on bedrest until you get ready to go in the hospital. When is your due date? Mine is November 12, but i feel like he may come early.

I just saw the doctor Wed and he told me that it is normal just pressure from the growing. But I just had to do a 24 -hr urine to see if I'm developing preeclampisa. My due date is Nov 8th and I'm looking at having her much earlier than expected. Hoping to hold off as long as I can.

Pressure started for me at around 33 weeks and has (and will not) go away. My doctor said it was pressure from a growing baby and uterus. It has caused my vagina to swell to double in size. So ice packs sound more appealing then sex. Keep your feet up as much as possible. The randomness can come from your little one moving around.

Good luck!
