  • "its like a weird pressure like one of the babies is balled up there. " maybe that's exactly what it is. I know I get some weird pressure on my stomach and then I can feel my little one there and sometimes if I push on it she'll start to move around. (I'm only 31 weeks pregnant with my first, so my guess is as good as yours lol, but I figured it'd be nice to have some reassurance)

  • I'd call your dr and ask, but it sounds like round ligament pain or just babys putting pressure down there. I'd say the sharp pain is most likely round ligament pain - I get that all the way through pregnancy and it's the first symptom I get , even before I can test! But again, any of these things should be run by your dr just in case it's a more serious problem.

  • I would call your Dr office and see if they want you to come in (going to the ER is pretty expensive)

  • do you have a fever? could be appendix... though I think that kind of pain is more along the lines of "excruciating" than "pressure"
    could be round ligament pain (which is really normal... just prop your feet up and drink some water- it tends to be triggered by over exertion)
    or it could be something really weird like I had about a month ago- baby put a kink in my colon that took 2 days to work itself out... I called my Dr on that one because it hurt so bad it took my breath away but I didn't have a fever so I knew it wasn't my appendix...
    all kinds of crazy things can happen when you're pregnant.

  • i called the nurse hotline and they said go to the er right away. i have medicaid so that covers the cost.

  • I'll be 19 wks tomorrow and I have had pressure pains since I was 16wks. I would rather be safe then sorry so I would call your ob.
