I'm having a hard time figuring out what types of pain I am having and when I should be concerned. This is my first pregnancy with pelvic pressure at all and at times it can be excruciating. I'm also having contraction like pains, but I am starting to wonder if they're really braxton hicks. I don't think they're timeable though. Yesterday I was in enough pain to warrant leaving work early. I was supposed to go home and rest, but having 2 kids already I did just the opposite. I cooked dinner, helped with homework and spent time with the family before finally going to lay down around 8. The pain is bad enough to make me nasueated and last night I vomited while in the shower. This is the second time I have vomited from pain and I'm wondering if I should call the dr.

My thoughts have always been "when in doubt, call the OB!"

As far as pressure, I know that I have been having the horrible sharp pains down there, but not constant pressure. A constant pain is something that I would worry about or at least ask the dr, something that comes and goes is more than likely normal in my opinion...

I hope you get to feeling better soon I know what its like to get sent home early to rest, and thats the last thing you do lol. Do your best to take some time out for you momma... You are growing a little baby, your body needs some rest!!

It almost sounds like you are having severe SPD pain. Does this pain go away if you take a bath or relax?

I also had to leave work yesterday because of pelvic pain. No contractions though. I got home, took a bath and consulted Dr. Google and I also came up with a SELF DX of SPD. I had never even heard of it before. It's unbelievably painful though. We had inventory at work yesterday and I had probably walked over a mile in about a 10 minute time frame and then stood in the heat for almost 2 hours. I felt fine while I was out there but as soon as I got back inside, I thought I was going to die. It was miserable. It hurts to sit for too long, it hurts to stand, it hurts to walk. It's absolutely awful! I feel for you sweetheart. I'm in the same boat

I rarely take baths, but sat in the shower yesterday...helped a bit until I vomited. Once I lay down I feel a lot better, but as soon as I sit up or stand there is pain somewhere smh. What is SPD?

Called the dr office and the nurse sent in a script for nausea meds and told me to get a maternity belt.

A maternity belt can really help. I have had some BH here and there. No major SPD. I did have one of those stabbing pains in my lower right abdomen (right near my hip) when I was rolling over last night. I had to get up and walk it out.

I've been debating the maternity belt thing as well. I didn't need one with DD so I guess I'm just unsure about them. Anybody else have experience?

I hope you're feeling better soon! I've just been having pain in my hips and sciatic pain. My mother keeps trying to push a maternity belt or holster on me, even though I tell her my belly isn't that huge yet. But I think it will be something I definitely invest in in the future.

SPD: Dr. Wikipedia explains it:

Symphysis pubis dysfunction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


It basically can feel like someone is cracking your pubic bone open. Worst. Pain. Ever. Around 35+ weeks when baby drops, it gets BAD.

I wore a belt at the end of my last pregnancy because I had varicose veins in a bad place, lol. This time around I wear one for running, or if I am doing any heavier housework type stuff.
