Emense pain in my groin at 32 weeks! HELP!

Hey ladies! Yesterday, I turned 32 weeks and am due August 30th. For the past few weeks, every time I bend over to pick up my dog (toy chihuahua) or anything off the floor I get the most horrible pain down there and I can't even walk it off. I have to stand there or lean up against the wall and wait for it to pass. One time, it got so bad that my husband had to catch me from falling over and hold me for a few moments until it passed. Last night I went for a walk like I usually do around our boardwalk (which is 4 miles from bridge to bridge and back). I have always been able to make it no matter what and never had pains before. I only got about halfway down and I got these emense pains just like when I would bend over before. I thought I wasn't going to make it back to my car! I had never been so scared! I thought, "oh my god am i going into labor?" but I don't know. Then today I read an article about the baby dropping early and it made me think that maybe that's what's happening. The position on my belly looks more like a basketball in my lower tummy instead of like a watermelon like it had since forever. I need some help here ladies. If any of you know what's going on with me please feel free to comment. I go to the doc on wednesday, but the pain is so bad that i need some help from women who can actually feel what I'm feeling. Not a 70 year old man who doesn't know what pain is. Thanks and I hope to hear from you all soon!!!

hey there, i hope you feel better today... i have been experiencing pelvic pain as well and my due date is aug 24th. Especially when i sit for a longer period of time, then get up to walk, i have this pain that last for about a minute, and i have to walk  it off slowly or sometimes just stand and wait until it goes away. i asked my doctor and i read online, but the only answer i got was "that it is very common and many women experience it" I would conslut your doctor about it, just to make sure it isnt anything serious, and i will go buy a maternity belt today, my doc. said it should help.

Is it a sharp pain that shoots through or like how I put it usually- like my vagina is about to flip me the bird and fall off from insane pressure? I'm a LOW low carrier and as you can see in the pic.. I have a basketball belly too... LOL. If it's the sharp pain, you have your sciatic nerve to thank, but almost two weeks ago I had the horrible pain every time I bent down to pick up something or to stand or walk up some stairs, and that's cuz the baby dropped low low low. Granted it's Friday now, but most midwives are at the medical centers on Saturdays, too. I would try giving them a call in the morning if it's not that sharp pain because the baby could've bobbed it's way down into your pubic bone and that will actually make you thin out early and begin to dilate even without contractions. I'm on that very boat right now and on strict bedrest for the remainder of my pregnancy because I'm 2 cm dilated and am due the exact same day you are :) My husband actually has to take off from work to be home and take care of our 3 yr old because I am only to get up if I have to pee or need to take a shower. I can sit up for a little bit but not long at all. So better safe than sorry, and give your midwife a call. Mine always tell me don't EVER feel weird or worried about calling them with a concern and they will make the time to see you. Good luck. It's not labor, but it can be an onset.. so definitely get that checked out ASAP. For now, lay low. Off your feet, prop them up until you can see someone.

**Correction about the due date, LOL. My original duedate was the 30th, but baby and my stomach are measuring a week ahead. So I'm about to be 34 weeks. Good luck!

yeah my baby and tummy measures 5 days more than it should. so i'm 33+5 as of saturday. i don't know how to explain the pain other than it feels like she's about to fall out of me! i tried to explain to my doctor and these wer his exact words: "uh huh uh huh uh huh well we'll check you next time you come in to see if you're dialating any but don't worry just wear a support belt." i kept saying "well what's wrong? what's happening to my body?" and he just kept saying "it's nothing." see at my dr's office there's three male doctors and one female midwife (to which i prefer) but for some reason i haven't been able to see her since.. the beginning of june. i don't feel like my male drs understand what a woman goes through. they don't know what it feels like ya know? atleast when i see my woman dr (midwife) she knows what's going on. she's had a baby. i get frustrated with my ob/gyn people. the pain is so unbearable and i feel so heavy i can't stand for that long or my heels start to hurt. i'm sooooo ready for the baby to be here.

It sounds to me like either sciatica pain or pubic bone/ligament stretching pain.  I have this pain in my groin area, and it sounds just like the pain you're describing.  It stops me in my tracks and is excruciating.  My OB said it's the pubic bones pulling apart.  I'm not sure, it might be my sciatica.  I am 37 weeks BTW.
