Lots of pressure....

I am almost 34wks... I have alot of pressure in my abdomen. When I stand up it gets worse and there are shooting pains that go through my vagina (one was bad enough earlier it brought tears to my eyes.) Any ideas?? Call the doc?? Plus I am just outright MISERABLE!!! Oh yea having a bunch of diaherra today as well don't know if it is related but you never know?!

  • Call the doc if you're worried, you have nothing to lose by doing that! You're always better safe than sorry! Good luck!

  • I am 33wks and have the same thing minus diaherra....i have been havin pressure for about 2wks now. and the pains for about a wk. I was at the doc yesterday and they said that it was normal and unless the pains got to were you were in HORRIBLE pain all the time then not to worry just try to take warm baths and take tylenol. I hate it when they say that. Exspecailly ones that have NEVER been pregnant.

  • pressure is normal because the baby is growing an dropping down into the pelvis. i even get pelvic pressure when im sitting or lying down... pregnant women can go between constipation and dirrhea like in a matter of days, its just cuz ur digestion is outta wack cuz theres a baby taking over ur body lol u could call ur doctor if ur worried but it sounds normal to me
