I just wanted to ask your opinions on something. It doesn't happen often, but occasionally I'll get these "pains"/cramps lower in my stomach. They don't totally seem like contractions, and I often have a lot of pressure and pelvic pain with them. I had preterm labor with DD a lot and it doesn't quite seem like that. There have been a couple times where I've had BH ctx with them, but I think that's coincidental as they weren't like real ctx just annoying.
Usually drinking water and laying down helps but I don't think it's strictly dehydration related as I'm really good about my water intake.
Sometimes it seems like it's just from him being lower in my stomach then I remember DD being. Anyone else go through this?
I realized today that I had it a lot last night, and when I was leaning against a wall today to relief the pressure, I got a little nervous. Trying to be as low key as I can. The last thing I want is to have to go to my MW and be told I'm going to need bed rest again.
Could it be sciatica? I know it's not always located where most women get it, behind their upper legs. I get it 20 wks+ but I haven't gained anything so I might be lucky this time. When I get it, it hurts for awhile and it's a very, very sharp knife-like pain in my pelvic bone that radiates to my upper thigh.
