23 weeks pregnant and feeling extreme pressure ! My last child was 6 weeks early ! adult content

I was at the grocery store and I felt this horrible pressure and felt like the baby was going to come out or as if my water was about to break. It was so bad that I had to excuse myself and run to the restroom to see if anything was coming out. Sorry for the details but I did deliver very early and now I freak out at the tiniest things. I got home relaxed a bit and it just happened again.

Is this normal?

  • It could be your body stretching. But I'd go to the emergency room if I were you, or at least put in an urgent call to your doctor. Especially since you delivered early last time, you don't want to mes around. Good luck.

  • I'd call your ob and express the concerns. I carried the placenta in front and baby in back and I had pressure throughout my 2nd preg. Anything not normal you always should get checked out when pregnant

  • Follow up with your OB. Could be just stretching or over exertion.

  • I would call your OB. A little pressure should be normal from stretching but too much is a concern. Especially if you have history of early delivery. I hope everything works out just fine.
