ChristineW Posted September 12, 2012 Share Posted September 12, 2012 (edited) I'm 24 1/2 weeks and the past three or four days, I've been feeling intense pressure on my pelvis and cervix. I've had three kids and don't remember the pressure being this intense until well into my third trimester. It really hurts to walk. No shooting pains just like the baby is really pushing down there all the time. At the 20 week u/s my cervix measured 4 cm which is normal but short for me (I usually measure between 6 1/2-7). WWYD? If its just the baby lying low--how do I get him to move? ___________________________________________________________ Dr suspects weak uterine ligaments. I'm to stay off my feet until our next appointment on Monday. If I have contractions (even BH) or unusual back pain, I'm to call his pager, but he thinks that I just need rest. He may prescribe me some kind of belt or a sling at our next appointment. I'm starting to vaguely remember this with my last one--I was on bedrest for two months right around 20 weeks so it never had a chance to get painful until I was safely in my third trimester. --C Edited September 13, 2012 by ChristineW Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
