Almost 20 weeks tight uncomfortable pressure when using bathroom?

I'm almost 20 weeks and when I use the bathroom making 1or 2 lol i have a tight uncomfortable pressure right above my pelvic bone especially when I poop or near emptying my bladder. Anyone else experience this? Id webmd but it takes forever for an answer.. Any advice would be appreciated thanks!  **UPDATE** Now its a sharp pain does not hurt alot though but its in my right hip every fewminutes or when I sit up my lower back is a little crampy to. I also have restricted blood flow thry the placenta maybe I should get checked out lol?

  • It sounds like braxton hicks contractions to me and that going to the bathroom is triggering them. It's been a year since I was pregnant, but that feeling is how I would describe BH contractions, and it seems like going to the bathroom has triggered them for me before.

  • I had that too. Something about the position you are sitting in on the toilet. If you hold the bottom part of your belly when you are on the toilet, it should ease up.

  • Try sitting up straight on the toilet and kind of bracing your belly. I know.. its weird to talk about bowel movements with strangers...
