I am 26 weeks pregnant, and experiencing some lower abdomnal pain, really low, like in my pubic bone area on my right side , after i would use the restroom it would go away, but now it seems to be sticking around--it hurts when i walk the most and the baby is kicking and punching the same spot that hurts...i just had an ultrasound yesterday and they said everything looked great...anyone experience this?
I had that too, and I went to the dr about it today, and I have an infection, he said that can make you have pains like that, and then when you go to the bathroom it goes away, cause it takes the pressure off of you. You should probably call them and ask. Just to be sure.
thanks for the advice ladies, its really hurting now, not even going away after i go to the bathroom--was it a UTI? or something else? Im kinda scared, i will call first thing in the morning.
hope you feel better
What I had? Not a UTI, somethign like a yeast infection, he didnt' go into specifics, just an infection in that area. My pain went away after I went to the bathroom, but I still had a burny itchy feelign in there, sort of like a yeast infection, but a slight bit diff. It's really very common for pregnant women to have them, he was actually suprised I had made it this far without one, and so was I. I got some antibiotics, drank a lot of water, and am already feeling better. The infection itself won't hurt hte baby, but it can make you go into early labor, IF it isn't treated, but if they treat it you should be fine!
And it may just be where the baby is layng, it's always hard to tell if the pain someone is describing is the same pain you are having, you know? Let us know!
I have had pains like that, the type that go through your pelvic bone and even into your inner thighs. All normal I am told. It is just more round ligament streching. My doctor said if it gets to bad they have a prenatal cradle that they helps take some of the pressure off the area. I decided to go without. sometimes a little heat helps. It's a fully place to put a heating pad, but it relieves some of the pain. A warm bath has also helped me. I knoe some people who say ice is best, but that was way to uncomfortable for me!
I too have these pains at different times of the day, but most often when i have to go to the restroom ... especially in the middle of the night when my bladder is full. Sometimes hard to get out and bed and walk but goes away after I go to the bathroom. I think it is just from the pressure of a full bladder. From what I hear it is normal.
