Is anyone else having so much pressure below that at times it is difficult to walk. I certainly don't remember feeling this with my DD. The pressure can be pretty painful as well. Any tips, I'm up for trying them.
Yep, my only solution has been to not walk around. But, then, I need to do that. :/
Seriously, though, feels like a bowling ball is lodged in my pelvis. Good news is, it means he's where he's supposed to be!
Yes. Awful. Groin pain, pelvic pressure, swollen lady parts. I spoke with my MW about it today at my appt and said that having one child can stretch and loosen your pelvic muscles and your second baby doesn't have as much "support". Which would explain the difference between #1 and #2.
She said it's all normal Nothing to worry about.
I find that overdoing it one day can lead to pain the next day. So just try and take it easy. :)
Yes, I totally feel this. Walking around and standing up is really painful as I can feel the baby's head below my pelvic and my crotch is very sore.
My doula had a couple of recommendations: using a wrap to lift up the tummy, having my dh use the wrap to pull and lift my stomach, and to lean on the birth ball kind of like in a yogic child pose.
I haven't tried any of these things to be honest, I am just soaking in epsom salts at night which I find very relaxing.
