Round Ligament Pains, SPD, or Just Normal Stretching?- UPDATE POST #11
So if you read my original thread post I just wanted to let you know that I edited this thread because I'm not so sure it's just round ligament pain as was suggested by my midwife although I just had a brief conversation with her when they first started and maybe didn't provide all the info.
I'm not one to complain about pregnancy symptoms much as I really truly enjoy being pregnant but I'm just wondering how many of you February mamas are dealing with pelvic pain right now. With DD I had some of the shooting pains from the round ligaments especially around the 1st trimester. About the same with DS (actually one of the signs that I was pregnant ). But this time which is my 3rd pregnancy I'm been having almost constant pelvic pains starting around 2-3 weeks ago. Not shooting pains but feels like someone kicked me in the crotch Feels kinda bruised and tender inside and a bit on the outside if I'm pushing on my pelvic bones or pressure is put on them when sitting down. It is more painful if I overdo it (doesn't take a ton for me this pregnancy). I also have an irritable uterus though and get contractions alot (started at 9 weeks this pregnancy), not sure if this has something to do with it or not. Haven't noticed as many contractions lately as I was experiencing though. Also wondering if it being the 3rd time around has anything to do with it. My belly seems bigger this time so maybe that is effecting it? So what do you think it sounds like, I was told it was probably round ligament pains but it doesn't really feel like the round ligament pains I've experience before. I was looking up SPD but mine doesn't seem worse when separating my legs, it's a constant aching. It does seem to get worse the more I walk or do though. Maybe it's just normal stretching of everything and is pronounced this time since it's my 3rd. If you other mamas are experiencing something similar have you figured out anything that helps or what exactly it is? I just ordered a pregnancy support belly band (didn't want to do the pregnancy support belts as they just look so uncomfortable and I can't imagine wearing one under my clothes all the time). So tell me what you think it sounds like and come commiserate with me mamas
