I am currently due with my second son October 12th. Recently I have had some concernes with low fluid due to what I have been experiencing. I am 31wks, People tell me recently I look "teeny tiny" for being as far along as I am. I don't recall ever being able to feel his entire body so clearly. Moving or not, I can feel everything ( legs, side, shoulders) with just touching my stomach. I have extreme pelvic pressure, it gets really uncomfortable to stand in just a short time, when I am standing and having pressure, when the baby moves the pain in the lower area is very similar to the feeling of having a catheter inserted in to your bladder. I haven't had leaking of fluid that I am aware of. I had a routine prenatal appointment on Wednesday where I brought all this up to the doctor and he seems completly unconcerned, He measured my belly as usual and said it was good. He asked if the baby moves around, I said yes. He said if fluid was low then the baby wouldn't move around so much. But that was all he checked for. How can I be so sure that this is true? When pregnant with my first son is was never like this.. Am I just being paranoid? anyone else with similar experience?
