Re: Symptoms Thread 1/4

  • I was feeling great until last night hit! I had the WORST back pain last night! I was starting to think something was wrong. Reminded me of the start of the pain I had when I had the bladder/kidney infection with Max. For about a half hour, I had to sit up, crossed leg, with pillows piled on my lap, so I could bend my back and stretch over them. I almost fell asleep like that until DH woke up and told me I was taking up too much room in our KING size bed! Murder flashed in my eyes for a good 30 seconds... So glad it went away and I was able to sleep after being awake for over 2 hours!! Gonna keep an eye on it though and if it flares back up, I'm gonna call the dr. At least maybe they can just get me into the lab to pee in a cup and check for an infection.

  • @KirstinH88 ouch! Hope it's not an infection. 

    I've been feeling pretty well other than heartburn and RLP and back pain. The RLP is vicious and I'm struggling to walk some days. I don't know if I'm going to be able to do much of any exercising until this boot is off, and by then I'm afraid I'll be too big to start anything back up again. Just working on my arms I guess and trying to walk despite the pelvic and foot pain so I can keep the blood pumping. 

    Back to having trouble sleeping again, thanks to the heartburn, difficultly breathing laying down, and random insomnia.

  • I thought I had experienced RLP before but oh no, I was so very wrong. This pain is intense and the waddle has started. Four more months. I can do this!

  • Please talk to me about RLP...I never had it with my first and I think that's what I'm having now, but I feel like my left ovary is trying to explode very sporadically. Can anyone who also experiences ovulation pain compare the two for me?
    blessedinmtNolegirl1185
  • @lovelongdog06 I get bad ovary pain. That's how I know what side I ovulate on. Haha. I would say it's similar though ovulation is usually one spot, and I've found the RLP lately to be over a length of several inches from crotch to mid belly on one side or the other. However, I've had pain around my ovary area more than once this pregnancy and I don't know if that was RLP or not. Comes and goes.

  • @HGRich I hear you with the sleeping difficulties... I can't remember the last time I slept through the night without heartburn waking me up. Tums have become my new best friend.

    Ugh Im needing to vent a bit today. My sciatic nerve pain is back and I'm feeling so much pressure in my groin... sorry if that's TMI. I actually went to my OB office this afternoon because I was scared I might be dialating with all of the pressure I'm feeling, but luckily she said no. I'm 26 weeks on friday, baby is already dropping down and I  don't remember feeling this sore until much closer to my due date the last time around.

    Any other 2nd or 3rd time moms feeling like things are progressing more rapidly this pregnancy? Right now I don't feel like I'm making it to 40 weeks... (trying to stay positive and make it at least 10 more weeks!) 

    hope me everyone else is feeling okay as we near the last trimester!

  • @HGRich thanks, that description helps. It starts like ovulation pain and then radiates, but it's always from the one side. My midwife suspects RLP but is checking in on me in case we decide its worse or not subsiding so she can order an ultrasound. I've considered it could be a cyst or even possibly adhesions since I've had a c section.

  • Between DH and the dog, it's amazing I get any sleep! They both snore sooooo loud!

  • I am having problems sleeping. I was always a stomach sleeper. Around thanksgiving I started sleeping on my back and now I try to sleep on my sides. I feel like I constantly flip around and I can never get comfortable. I dread waking up because I know my back will hurt and I get such restless sleep. 

    Also so constantly hungry, still constantly having blood when I blow my nose, super dry skin (both of those are also because it's winter), and hormonal.

  • Has anyone else experienced spotting this far along? I've been having back pain for about two days. It comes and goes. This morning, I noticed two pin drop sized spots of brown blood. Nothing throughout the day. And just when I got home a little while ago, I had brown discharge when I wiped. I'm wondering if this is fairly normal, or if coupled with my back pain if I should reach out to my OB. I have my 24 week appt on Monday.

  • I haven't...  such a small amount is probably no big deal but I don't see harm in calling to ask the OB or nurse

  • @KirstinH88 I had a little bit of spotting around 24 weeks and I called my OB nurse line, and they said unless it was a lot of blood not to worry. However, I didn't also have the back pain so I'm not sure if their advice would have been different. Do you have an after hours line you can call?

  • @KirstinH88 I haven't had any spotting since the first trimester so I can't help you. I'd call the doc tomorrow too. On the other hand, their first question will probably be whether you had sex in the last few days. Since it's brown it's older blood, and could be from even five days ago or so from what I've heard. So could just be from sex.

    @KirstinH88 I have not had any spotting/bleeding since my little scare around 15 weeks.  I hear that it can be normal all throughout pregnancy.  Being brown means old blood which is a good thing.  But being accompanied by back pain it wouldn't hurt to call just to be sure :)  

    edited to add that I should have finished reading the comments before I chose to comment lol.  "Ditto" would have sufficed!

  • @KirstinH88 I think you're fine waiting until the morning, and calling then just to be safe. Keep us posted, although I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.
