Pressure? Normal? Squeaky McGee 2 kids; 3 angel babies; Indiana 65151 posts

I'm 16 weeks and I have a ton of perineal pressure already! What gives? When I sit down to go to the bathroom, it feels like my vagina/baby is going to fall out! I don't remember feeling this way with my daughter. At least not until the 3rd trimester. Is this normal so soon?!

That is about when I started feeling pressure this pregnancy. It happens a lot when I would stand or walk for too long too. I think it is because how low Jacob likes to lay.

I hope it's normal! I still worry more than I should!

I had it way sooner this pregnancy. There's some stuff called mama bottom balm by earth mama angel baby and it is seriously a god send. Especially since you're on your feet a lot. They market it for postpartum care but I've been using it for months now. It makes your vag feel like heaven, and supposedly helps with hemroids and whatnot.

With my second I felt it early on. About 19 weeks

Glad I'm not the only one!



I think I'll probably still mention it to my OB, since I've been having contractions lately and work has been running me ragged!

I started getting it then too. My baby sits so low I'm sure that's why. I get lots of kicks and movement at my cervix. Silly babies.

I do too!! Like today, I couldn't remember Jacob moving around. He is usually quite active. I was hoping it was just because I was shopping and a bit busy to notice. I got home and laid down for a bit. Still nothing. I panicked and I got out the doppler. It is my Godsend! He must have been sleeping because his HR was a bit lower than usually. 155 instead of 160 :)

I have the same problem! It is usually after I work a bunch of days in a row. I mentioned it to my OB and he suggested trying a support belt so that baby doesnt put as much pressure.

I might have to try that, cause I'm going to be miserable towards the end!

I'm convinced my uterus is going to prolapse before the end!



It's horrible I haven't had sex in so long! Poor dh
