I swear it was hard to walk ... the pain ... whenever I was in the seated position for a prolonged period of time, the pain was almost unbearable ... felt like my uterus was going to fall out ... the pressure ... but then I could pretty much walk it into a dull pain ... wasn't as bad on Friday ... but bad enough to really be getting on my last nerve ... then today ... less pain but more consistent pain ... uncomfortable ... but bearable ... I read up and found the following about this "pain and pressure:"
Pregnancy can be a time of extreme discomfort. From aching feet to lower back
There are two major causes of pelvic
The second major cause of pelvic pain & pressure during pregnancy is the stretching of ligaments. As the ligaments that support your uterus thin and stretch, they can cause sharp, almost stabbing pains on the side of your pelvis. This pain can stretch all the way down to the thighs. The sciatic nerve may also be crowded, causing a painful or sometimes a numb feeling in this area as well.
There are a variety of things that you can do to help relieve pelvic pressure & pain during pregnancy. You might find that you can use heat, such as with a heat pack or a warm bath, to help relax your pelvic area. Some women have had success with pelvic massage. Sometimes, just changing your position can get your baby into a different spot, and thereby putting less pressure on your pelvis. Knee lifts can sometimes help with stretching ligaments, although you should always take care to do these in such a way that you maintain your balance and avoid the risk of falling. Pelvic rocking or hip squeeze exercises may provide some relief. If the pain and pressure are unbearable, or if they are frequent, you should speak with your health care provider.
