Someone please help me LOL!!
I am just under 32 weeks and over the last week or so have had a severe increase in pressure and pain in my pelvis and hips. Combine that with a little nausea and braxton hicks and all in all it's making for a very unenjoyable experience LOL!!
I see a physio every week for some slight lower back pain (basically an excuse for a weekly massage hehe) and she mentioned that bub is sitting rather low and may have dropped, and due to the nausea etc suggested I book in to see my GP and see if he thinks I need to see my Ob early (next appt is 05/03).
So went and saw GP yesterday, blood pressure & bub's hb etc perfect and he prescribed me some maxolon for the nausea. Then we get to the part where I lay up on the bed thingy so he can feel my tummy. I lift my dress and I kid you not his reaction is pretty much word for word 'holy cow how are you still working and functioning??!!'. Apparently bub has dropped RIGHT down since last time I saw him (1.5 weeks ago) which is why I'm feeling so much pressure in this area. He told me that I 'really don't have any room left in there' which is probably why I'm feeling nauseaous as everything is all squished up. Said there's not really much I can do about the pain / pressure in my pelvis except take a couple of panadol and hope bub comes early - and he said this could be a real possibility just by looking at me.
This is just a vent as if bub has dropped down so low and is causing so much discomfort, if I go full term how the hell do you deal with it? And if I'm out of room in there now what am I going to be like in 8 weeks time at 40 weeks??
A little worried about how I'm going to cope
