  • This is something to discuss with your Dr. It could just be ligaments being stretched, but it's always best to discuss your medical concerns with a medical professional. GL

  • Stop bending over. And sit down differently.

  • Well for starters thank you for answering i appreciate it. my delema is that I'm 17 I'm still working on my medicaid paperwork. and I'm a waitress so i don't quite have the money to just go to the doctor when i need to yet that is. which is why i am greatful you answered my question. and i also have a pretty good sized cyst on my ovary that has been giving me some trouble. Could that affect my pregnancy

  • There's only so much a bunch of strangers on the Internet can tell you. Your best bet will be to get the Medicaid paperwork filled out as soon as you possibly can so you can start receiving good prenatal care.

  • So you need to talk to your parents not us.

  • If you have a cyst, you need to let your doctor know you are having some discomfort. You can call into the office and a nurse can check and tell you if you need to be seen or not. You need to keep up with doctors visits despite not having insurance.

  • It is normal to feel pressure that early on. I did, and so has EVERY other person I know. Hell, I felt a bit of pressure around 7 weeks when I laid on my stomach.
