Pressure? Mrs. Feliz. 2 kids; New Jersey 10047 posts
25th Aug '13

I'm having pressure in my lower abdominal area. It isn't really painful, but bareable. I'm only six weeks. I've been crying for days, I have been eating little. I'm hungry, and I do eat. This pressure is worrying me though. I don't want to go to the e.r because the last time they drugged me through my iv & I felt horrible! My insurance doesn't go through til after the 5th of September, so I can't call a dr.



Any inputs?

if you are stressing (assuming because you said you have been crying) it can cause issues similar to that. or maybe your uterus is just growing. i had pressure my ENTIRE first pregnancy. I could understand why once the baby starts growing. you are still a little early. are you sure you are not constipated or something?? is it uterine pressure???

If your not bleeding or cramping very badly I would say you can wait it out and mention it to a doctor when you see one.

I believe it's uterine pressure. It's like right above my vagina, but not as high as my belly button.. If that makes sense.

No bleeding or cramping bad.. Just stressed with pressure.

your making perfect sense. well im no doctor but if you dont start bleeding, i would say dont worry. as long as its not painful, i think you are fine. your body is going through a lot of changes. it could be a number of things but no pain/blood usually means your ok

Pressure is normal during pregnancy. No cramping or bleeding? I wouldn't stress over it.

Pressure is normal, even though it is scary!! Maybe you are having braxton hicks already, its not unheard of to start that early. Mine started weeks ago and im only 15 weeks.

This is like constant pressure though, like it doesn't go away. Unless I'm sleeping, obviously, then i can't feel it.
