I am at 31 weeks (will be at 32 tomorrow) and have a doctor's appointment coming up. Lately I have been experiencing pressure and aching in my pelvis and lower abdomen. It's enough to make me wince and the best way to describe the soreness is that it feels like someone punched me repeatedly in the cervix. I did not experience anything like this in my first pregnancy, so I feel a little alarmed at times. My doctor's visits are very in-and-out efficient, and I'm worried the doctor may just brush off my complaint as a "normal" discomfort of pregnancy. Preterm labor would be a very bad thing in my case because I live a long way from the hospital. Should I ask the doc to do an exam? Or am I worrying over nothing?Answer Question
