  • hey your uterous is getting bigger all the time and so is your baby its probably nothing my friend said she felt the same way and it was just the growing baby and uterous and you shud never be embarrassed to ask your doctor anything about you and your pregnancy they are there to help and there is no question they wont answer so be completely open with your ob and if it helps write down all your ?s as you think of them so when u go in there already and you wont forget to ask. hope this helps best of luck and dont worry

  • Well you should always let your doctor know whats going on. But I had the same feeling, it's normal. It is just pressure from the baby and your uterus dealing with all the changes.

  • you are probably just stretching. the baby is still small. i don't think the baby itself if doing enough rock and roll to give you that much pressure, it's probably just the growing and stretching of your uterus and pelvic bone. I'm 17 weeks too.
