    Dull ache downstairs


    I just want to know if this is normal? I am expereincing a dull ache sometimes in the "pelvic floor region" (sorry tmi) I am coming into the 3rd trimester and just thought I would check if anyone else has had this feeling. I think I had it with my first (cant remember...Nappy brain)...

    I've got added pressure in the lower pelvis which is giving me aches and pains down there too, it's worse at the end of the day or if I've been out walking/shopping all day If it gets unbarable I'm puttin some ice on it

    Hi Sheba,
    Thanks for asking this question I have had it too for the past couple of weeks. I get it mostly if I have been sitting in the same position for a while. I found that a few stretches (stretching the knees apart while in a crouching position - not too flattering, lol) relieves it for me. I think it is pretty normal as we get further along thought I don't remember having it in my last pregnancies.

    in a land of screaming kids.

    Try a fit ball to help take some pressure off. Also helps align the hips and soothes all the muscles down there I find. It also helps sciatic pains and lower back pains. I also find if I have back pains, getting on hands and knees helps heaps as bubs weight is shifted and results in less pain. If all else fails, a nice warm bath does wonders for all types of aches. Goodluck girls. Sounds pretty normal to me, not that that helps at all! *hugs*
