Hi im 26 weeks and lately for the last 2 days when i go pee or poop sorry tmi i get alot of pressure down there sooo bad it almost makes me cry & makes me Scrinch (SP) in pain & makes me not want to pee or push to go to the bathroom & makes me wanna scream in pain, I have to sit there for awhile and take my time & half the time i dont even wanna go or i just hurry and go and try and deal with the pain. Sometimes I even have to lift the one side of my butt off the toliet and lean to the side to try and ease the pain but that always doesnt even help & it seems like it is getting so much worse. Do you think he is head down already?? or what do you think is going on?? I know your not doctors im just wondering if anyone else has had this happen or what you guys think. I had my last baby at 35weeks my water just sarted leaking out of nowhere so im just paranoid its going to happen again. please no Bashing

I have never experienced that, and it doesn't sound normal.. IMO! I would definitely give your doctor a call ASAP and ask him/her about it.

It sounds like you're constipated. Try taking some Colace (stool softener) and drink lots of water. Colace is safe to take during pregnancy, btw. It was a godsend for me whenever I became constipated.

If you mean your water is leaking with this pregnancy, it may just be me, but I would go get checked. However, I have the same pressure in that area. where it feels like someone took a baseball bat and hit me between the legs. With my first child I did not start getting that pain until my son was down by my hips during the last couple of weeks. And this pregnancy I have been carrying my daughter in between my hips from the get go, so I'm feeling that pain/pressure earlier (started around 26wks) I don't think you should worry about the pain and pressure you get while going to the bathroom, standing up, and when you walk around a lot. *Well that's usually when it bothers me the most is those times*

Is it hard for you to use the bathroom at all? Even though you're going every day it's still possible to be constipated.



Just call your OB up tomorrow and they'll have a nurse answer any questions you might have about this pain you're feeling. If they think it's anything worth checking out they'll have you come on before your scheduled scan. In the mean time try not to worry too much.

have you investigated down there?? i mean for piles??? cause that can be also another cause of pain!! you might need some numbing cream, and as for you stressing, you need to sit down and have a hot milo and stop thinking that this pregnancy is going to be the same as last time!! cause its not LOL!!!! you would want to talk to your midwife!!

its not so much its hard to use the bathroom, i can go just fine but i hate going because of all the pressure & the pain it hurts so bad to go pee even and to go poop. I dont even wanna push it hurts so bad and even when im just sitting there it hurts to even sit, its so uncomfortable. it doesnt happen every time i have to go because i do go alot he likes to lay on my bladder but almost every time i go the pressure & pain is out of control.
