Girls, I am dying here! I carry babies so low, so the bigger they get, the more painful it is. Around week 20, I started getting tightness down low, and my dr told me it sounded like ligament pain- which unfortunately you cant do much about. I have been suffering through this, although the bigger I get the worse it is. Finally at my 35 week appointment, I saw a different dr who decided to check me because my u/s's were showing the baby super low and she said the pain I was having wasnt so much ligaments, but all the weight of the baby pushing on my pelvis. It was at that appointment she discovered I was dialated 4cm- obviously the baby is just forcing its way out of me!
The pain was getting worse last week, each time at night that I would roll over, I would have shooting pains that had me screaming and shaking because it was so painful. But nothing compares to last night- I didnt sleep at all because even lying still I had throbbing pressure that nearly had me in tears.
I am going back to the dr today and I am going to complain and complain, but really, what is there that she can do except take this kid out of me- which I dont want to happen for another week?
It is so uncomfortable girls, I AM DYING HERE!!!!!
Has anyone else ever had this happen? I think having a baby sit on your pelvis for nearly 20 weeks is enough to leave a nasty, painful bruise- thats what it feels like. Man it is sooooo sore!!!

Oh Steph!!! I am so sorry to hear that you are in such horrible pain! I wish there was something I could do for you! Are there any positions at all that are even relatively comfortable so you can get a little rest? Maybe sleeping almost sitting up rather then laying down? I hope that the dr is able to tell you something that can help you! That little one is just bored of sitting in there and is ready to come out and play with you all! I'll be thinking about you and hope that you begin to have some of the pain relieved - hang in there!!!

I'm sorry you're in so much pain. I was thinking of you all weekend. Wondering if baby (Boy ) decided to make an appearance.
I have a question. It may sound dumb, but then again the dumbest question is the one not asked. Less than three weeks early if it's delivered now. Is that really bad? I ask because my first was 2 weeks early according to the due date (I was young and didn't keep track of my periods) and he wasn't in nicu and didn't have any problems, he weighed 7 lbs. The doctors told me they may take this one at 36 weeks.
I don't want you to think I'm weird or anything, just curious that's all. If it were me, and I was in so much pain, I'd have to say take it out!! But I guess it's different for someone who has had a baby in nicu.

Oh my that sounds dreadful, I have heard when they "drop' that it is very very painful and it sounds like that is what you are talking about. I hope the dr. will re-check you and make sure you aren't any more dilated- lets hope he will have some suggestions so you can be pain free and get some sleep. Hang in there, you only have a few more weeks. Let us know what you find out...
