Hi girls, This post could contain too much information for some..... I am a little worried about a pain and pressure I was feeling all day yesterday as I don't remember having it this early or to this extent on my first pregnancy. It is all along my nether regions front to back and inside too, like it is my cervix. It is also down my inner thighs. It is a muscular type pain and I found it very hard to walk normally yesterday or get out of the car etc.... It has eased a lot today but it may get worse as I go along as thats what happened yesterday. Any thoughts?

Hi Nantes, Cant be much help just saw lots of prople viewing but no replies so thought Id reply. Why dont you call your dr or the hospital you are attending? Im sure you could go in for a check on baby & reassure yourself. It may just be the way baby is lying or moving about maybe on some nerves which is meant to be pretty painful :o( Take it easy & put your feet up. Hope you feel better soon :action32

Thanks so much girls....the pillow gives great relief alright. Didn't know that about the pubic bone...sounds like that could be it, combined with some stretching. Will def go to doc if I get as bad as yesterday. Thanks again.....

Nantes my sis in law is pg with her 3rd and she had this on her second and this pregnancy doctor told her nothing to worry about lots of rest and the pillow thing too - it hurts her really bad when driving for some reason

Dont have much to say, except, hope the pain doesnt get to bad. Glad the gils had good advice, worrying is the worst. Jen2

Snap, I had the same thing at 22 weeks, like I was all 'bruised' down there and walking was hard. It's a touch of spd but don't stress, mine went away after a few weeks. It has come back now as back pain and I have to wear a support belt, but it's not too bad. I also noticed a HUGE growth spurt between 22-24 weeks so that probably aggravated it. I found using a 'wedge pillow' when lying on my side at night is invaluable and wouldn't be without it!
