  • It is pelvic pressure. I know it can really hurt. I had the same problem. It is completely normal, nothing to worry about :)

  • i still have that now after 2 years, and it hurts like hell if I stand up too long, or mop the floors. Good luck! You'll probably have it for a while.

  • ya the pressure is usually on the sciatic (sp?) nerve. That usually causes the legs to go numb. wiggle around, maybe baby will move off of it lol good luck momma
