Icky period feeling...18 wks along

I have randomly getting that icky, period feeling, not cramps, all day long. I have had it randomly throughout the pregnancy and told it was normal but no one said for how long. At the doctor two days ago everything was normal and ok and I"m pretty sure I have been feeling quickening...
The feeling is almost like a pressure feeling but NOT crampy at all..maybe even achy.

  • I STILL get that sometimes and im almost 6 months...(one more week). I think it can happen throughout your WHOLE pregnancy.

  • soulds like maybe your uterus is stretghing or it is very possible your feeling your baby move. Most the time those first few moments feel more like butterflys in your tummy or kind of a bubbly gas feeling. Either way im sure your ok. Congrats and good luck.

  • Shooting pain may be your sciatica..
