Twenty eight weeks pregnant and... adult content

I will be twenty eight weeks pregnant tomorrow, below is some of the things I am experiencing, I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing any of these and if you think it's normal, didn't have them this early with my first daughter.

-LOTS of pressure down below, hurts to walk, or even get up, laying down doesn't help and either does support bands.
-BH contractions every 15-20 minutes, sometimes they get down to every 12 minutes.
-Period like cramping off and on through out the day.
-More discharge coming out, [I know it's nasty, sorry.]
-Lower backache.
-Sharp shooting pains through out my stomach off and on, *just started this today*

I am going to the doctor soon, as I have an appointment but just wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing any of the same things as me, or what everyone thinks it is, just normal or something going on?

Thanks =]

  • I'm 30wks and experiencing similar things. The cramping, discharge, back pain, and pressure on my pubic bone (it hurts so bad sometimes I can't even sit). I have a dr. appt thursday, but I'm pretty sure most of these things are normal. I haven't had any BH contractions, I don't think, I don't really know what they feel like :/ Wish I could give you some helpful advice but atleast you know you aren't alone :)

  • I have had 4 boys and experienced all that you described with every pregnancy. Still talk it over with your OB

  • Oh, I had that alot . . . I actually had to stop my daily walking because the contractions would get so bad. Talk to your doc.

  • yep I am 28 weeks today and have my midwife apt tomorrow. I didn't have any of this with the first two so I will be double checking that its all normal. At the moment I think if the baby is still active then I'm good!

  • They might not be BH contractions. Around 28 weeks I started experiencing what I thought were BH contractions, but it was actually the process of estrogen softening ligaments and pelvic joints, which were then expanding. This also causes discharge, low back pain, round ligament pain (can feel like cramping or shooting pains) and headaches.

  • I had all of those same things with my second pregnancy. It was awful, but normal. Big hugs... it won't last forever.
