I asked this earlier:
I am 37 weeks pregnant, having a c-section May 23. I've been having these HORRIBLE pains. It feels as if my pelvic/pubic bone is splitting apart or something. It hurts when I stand up, when I walk, lay down, anything. I feel like my baby is pushing down and putting so much pressure on my private part also so sitting down REALLY hurts too. It gets so bad I can barely walk or roll over in bed. Sometimes I feel like I can hardly move at all. I've take Tylenol to try to relieve some of the pain but it doesn't work at all. I've also tried warm baths but still, no help. The pain has just gotten so bad that it's excruciating!! Should I call my doctor? I have an appointment Friday. Is this normal? Is there anyway that anyone knows of that I can relieve this pain at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
UPDATE: When I called the doctor I told her about these pains and also told her that my baby wasn't moving quite as much as normal. She told me that it sounded like contractions and for me to drink a sweet soda or eat something sweet and lay down and do a kick count. She said that if the pains got to where I was having them every 5 mins to come in. But for me to just lay down and stay off of my feet. This didn't sound right to me. My pains don't come and go. They're pretty constant, they just lighten up a little. But they are AWFUL. My baby has moved since I've called but she still isn't moving as much as she has been lately. I'm telling myself that it's because she has gotten so big that she doesn't have hardly any room to move. Someone earlier said something about pubic symphasis pain. Does anyone know anything about this? Does that sound like what I have? I'm sorry this is so long. I've just been worried all day. Everyone's help has been appreciated and any more help will be also. Thanks ladies!Answer Question
