I'm 20 weeks, and today I've been having alot of pain not IN my vagina, but it seems like mostly (sorry tmi) near the labia and more near the bones down there on either side. Sorry, I don't know how else to put it besides that. It feels like a sharp pain every now and then, almost like someones kicking me.
I've been having that classic sharp round ligament pain in my lower left side all day, but I know that's round ligament pain..just wondering about the other pain..thanks guys.
I get the same pain, especially after my 4-12hr shifts.... Being on my feet for 12 hrs running around, breaking down birthing beds, hulling beds with pats in them going for c/s is not an easy task, so I blame work for my pain....same pains as you it sounds like....and I think I will try those bag of peas....as soon as I read it , it sound so comfortable!!! lol
yep....its quite painful. i was just talking to my doc about it last week because it seemed early for it, didnt happen until much closer to the end with my son. everything is just loosening up and it can be quite painful and for me being the 2nd baby its happening earlier.
She suggested a support band that would lift the uterus upward to take pressure off that area but im not sure if i can stand having something on my tummy at all

I feel like I keep getting on a soap box tonight...
This is totally treatable! It doesn't fully go away until after pregnancy but it's pelvic floor dysfunction and a women's health physical therapist can help. Just beware, this is basically gynecological physical therapy but it works. I worked at PT office for years and more than half of the practice was women's health PT and there's so much that can be done and exercises you can do. Not necessarily kegels, sometimes that's worse!
