Re: 23 weeks and in pain.
I probably can't be of much help on exactly what is going on with you, but I can say from experience that this is my second pregnancy and it has been much harder on my body than the first one was. I can't IMAGINE being on my feet all day. I work in an office so I sit for the 5 hours that I am there, and even then when I do get up and walk, I feel so sore and uncomfortable that I feel like I could cry. My best friend and I decided to take a walk one day up the street from her house to pick up her daughter at day care. I seriously thought I was going to go into early labor. It was horrible!!!! I was getting cramps so bad and my whole stomach felt tight. I really thought something was wrong. So I can only imagine that if you are on your feet all day that you are probably feeling pretty badly at this point. If you are worried, call your doctor. They can reassure you that everything is ok. But I think overall, the second pregnancy is NOTHING like the first for your body. I LOVE being pregnant, but at this point, I am pretty much over it. Plus, I think you are like me and didn't have a lot of time in between your two. I found out I was pregnant when my DD was 6 months old, so not a lot of recovery time in between. I think it makes a difference.
Maybe you could even mention to your work about how you've been feeling and see if there is something less stressful on your body that you could do at work??? Just a suggestion. I hope you feel better soon!!!
