Hello Ladies! So today happens to be the mark of me being 38 weeks pregnant. Not much longer to go! But I have to ask. I NEVER felt any of these pains with my first pregnancy, so I am clueless & I have been feeling BH contractions. But never felt real labor pains with my first. Sounds weird. I know.
But since the night before Thanksgiving I was having sharp, stabbing pains... it's right between my belly & my thigh on my on left side. Now the doctor keeps telling me it could be round ligament pain. But I heard that round ligament is a sudden sharp pain and that's it, then it goes away. This is completely constant! It hurts when I walk, when I sit, when I move, when I'm sleeping, when I turn. I'm not sure what in experiencing. When I walk or move around on the bed... it feels like something is grinding against something else in that area. Like a bone grinding against another. It's so excruciating, I'm in tears... literally! I don't know what else to do, so I thought I'd ask other moms who ever experienced this kind of pain and knew what it was. Please, ANY advice would help. Thanks!
Sounds like RL pain to me... I started having it around 27 weeks and it lasted until I delivered at 42 with my first. Contractions will be all over your body and come and go. Try to find a comfortable position to rest in while you can. I would say get a maternity girdle, but since you're already so close it may not be worth the pain. =/ Sorry mama, I know it sucks but you're almost there!
