25 weeks pregnant and feeling AWFUL

my head is pounding, I've felt weak and crummy since yesterday and today I've been propped on the couch with tons of pillows all day because my pelvic area and lower back are killing me :( I just feel awful and can't be off the couch for more than a few minutes without feeling sick and faint. I have to work 10 hours on my feet all day tomorrow :( :(

Go to l&d, that's how my sisters preterm labor started, they got it stopped but just barely.

Get a belly brace, something that sort of holds your belly up so there is less downward pressure.

I started having horrible pains and stuff around 24ish weeks or so. It felt better when I "held" my belly up, the band was a lifesaver (until maybe 34 or 36 weeks where I was carring sooooo low that nothing helped. LOL)

Have you talked to a doctor or nurse about how you're feeling? There's nothing wrong with being extra careful while pregnant....

I actually had a midwife app this morning. I wasn't feeling anything like I am now. just really tired and sore which is why she told me to get a support band. As the day goes on I just feel horrible and worse and worse.

ooh girl, I've got a low-lying placenta myself and I'm considerably further along than you and I thought they were NUTS for suggesting the support band. I'll admit, it's ugly as sin and I feel like a sumo wrestler but it REALLY did help relieve some of the lower pain I was feeling. get one!

Mmmhmmm!!! My hips hurt like a sonofabitch and I tend to waddle without realizing. Sometimes he pushes down so hard I feel like I might pee myself.
