Any mamas ever have this....

while expecting? When I have to go potty (urinate, sorry for the info, just wanna be clear) I don't feel that sensation to go like normal. But my lower belly, right above my pelvic area is all crampy and very sore. It will stay like that even after I go. The other night I woke up 4 times to go potty and did not have more than noraml to drink that day.

Anyone else ever feel like this? Do you think it could be this baby's position? This is my 5th pregnancy and it never did this with any of them and right now I am 13 1/2 weeks, but it has been like this since about 7 weeks.

Any suggestions or sharing your experiences welcome! Thanks mamas!!

Re: Any mamas ever have this....

YES! i've only had the one pregnancy, but i also started getting a crampy, almost strained feeling while i was urinating and after. i went a few times to make sure i didn't have a bladder infection (never did, but definitely worth checking into). i did some asking around and i heard from some others that mentioned the same feeling. apparently it is the muscles/tendons etc around the uterus, and they have to work really hard to keep the uterus "up" when it doesn't have the support of a full bladder. does that make sense? i eventually stopped feeling that as the pregnancy went on. (and was introduced to a whole other slew of pains!)

good luck mama, i hope it's something as simple as that!

I have had the stretched muscle or liagment pains since my 3rd pregnancy. This just seems to be associated with needed to go potty...but then lingers...very strange and uncomfortable! ehhh It could be, and probably is, all connected. I have an ob appt sept 5th and will bring it up with my dr....just wondered if anyone else experiences this or what! lol

Thanks mama!!

I feel crampy and bloated like I'm on my period when I have to go pee.

Definitely mention it to your doc, but hopefully it's nothing.

Annescottage, I feel the exact same way, I assumed it was a normal thing. This is my 4th pg and I've had that feeling/pain each pregnancy.....its very uncomfortable for sure!
