I'm in my 3rd trimester now, I think, I'm 28 weeks and 2 days. For about 3-4 weeks now, I have had a uncomfortable pressure in my pelvic area. The muscles around my vagina are sore, really sore, like it hurts to move at times, and sometimes they don't hurt. My stomach area is also so, like it feels like it is about to "explode" and I never had the morning sickness during the first trimester, but now I get weezy around certain foods and I just feel sick and exhausted (all the fatigue from the first trimester is back with a vengeance). Is this normal?
Sometimes I feel like I've been kicked in the crotch. And forget squatting! That just makes it worse. I believe it's from the engorgement/increased blood flow in the area. I also never had morning sickness -- a few bouts, but nothing serious. The past couple of mornings, the idea of breakfast makes me need to lie down. So strange. And the bloating...I'm HUGE after I eat. It's because the baby is getting so big and pushing everything up and slowing down digestion. My back is my worst symptom. I'm starting to have difficulties walking because my low back is in so much pain, mostly when I get up from lying down or sitting. It's not preterm labor, just back pain. I can't believe I have another 2 months to go! It's going to fly by I bet!
