QUESTION

I am 23 weeks. For the several days I have had some very sharp pains in my vaginal area. These are making it hard for me to walk. What is this pain? What can I do to help ease it? Will it last the rest of my pregnancy?

Thank you for answering.

ANSWER

It kind of depends on what kind of pain it is. Usually "very sharp pains" are ligament pain. As your child grows, the ligaments that attach to the bones in your vagina are being stretched, especially when your baby moves or you move.

By now you should have gained about 13 pounds if you began your pregnancy with a normal weight (less if you started out overweight). If you are gaining more than you should, that would stretch the ligaments even more, and I would advise going on a strict pregnancy diet (not a regular diet) right away so that the rest of your pregnancy is more comfortable, and so your baby gets the correct nutrition.

Good luck!

my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; (dreka14demons@gmail.com), for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr EKA, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: (dreka14demons@gmail.com) if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine you can as well contacted him (dreka14demons@gmail.com) To enable you have a taste of his nice work too.
