  • If you are 17 weeks pregnant it might just be your ligaments stretching more and making more room for baby. I remember getting terrible pains in my upper/inner thighs and other areas like my pelvis.

  • Maybe it's the weight. When I started growing (And even now) the baby was constanly on my bladder and the pressure is just too much. It helped me to hold that spot under my stomach, like I was lifting her up until I got to the bathroom to relieve myself.

    Not sure what you meant by hurts... sorry

    You can always call and ask the nurse.

  • I have a small bladder and the pressure from the baby make it even smaller, Every time my bladder gets too full it hurts... Sounds like you just dont have the room you use to have.. I'm 33 weeks now and been dealing since about 15 weeks... more i get up about every 3 hours

  • What is hurting specifically? Your hips, belly, legs, feet?

  • Sorry, a pee cup isn't the best sample, have them do a urine sample where they use a catheter to get a urine sample, my Dr.'s tried to tell me it was a pinched nerve, nope, it was a kidney infection with a blocked ureter, 4 hospitalizations later, I have a nephrostomy tube in my kidney and it hurts worse than before. I'm 30 weeks by the way, do not let it go on as long as my Dr.'s did.
