Pregnancy pains? 1st-time-mommy7 Due March 8 (girl); Eureka, California 65 posts

I work 4 days a week 10 hours shifts, and I walk all day long. I work as an inspectress at a hotel and I walk four floors of rooms checking 105 rooms, Im consistantly moving. I also lift and carry things at work on a daily basis and I stress about a lot of frustrating things and people that don't do what they are supposed to. I left work today because I was having sharps pains in my lower right side of my pelvic area and the top of my belly on both sides along with some back pain. I called my doctor and got an appointment for tomorrow morning but I was just wondering if it happens to a lot of woman. Or if its normal? I still feel her kicking I just want to make sure that I'm not putting her in life at risk for possibly overworking myself? I've had a miscarraige so it scares me. I just want to know, and is it maybe Braxton Hicks???
I would love to hear, please and thank you!

I think You are working to hard you need some rest ask for a week off see how you feel or wait till your next Ob appointment and make sure you let the Ob know unless the sharp pain gets worse then you should go to the Er because it can mean your dilating you dont want that

Thats what I was thinking and I dont want to go into pre term labor thats scary. I just think that Im working so much and even on my days off I dont hardly rest like I should. But I also don't want to be like O I cant do that cuz I'm pregnant, Im not broken lol. I just need to do whats best for my baby and if it is to not work so hard then I won't. Thank you!

Sounds like muscle strain and some round ligament pain from being on your feet so much. definitely mention it to your doctor though!
