I'm 22 weeks and I'm having strong frequent Braxton Hicks on a regular basis with pelvic pressure. Is this normal?

I'm 22 weeks and I'm having strong frequent Braxton Hicks on a regular basis with pelvic pressure. Is this normal?

May be preterm labor: Those regular contractions could be preterm labor. One should be checked out by her Ob-Gyn doctor. That may mean going to the hospital and staying in the Labor and Delivery ward to be monitored to see what is going on. Meanwhile, avoid physical activities, having sex, and bumpy rides to the hospital. A baby born at 22 weeks does not survive, so I hope that uterus calms down. ...Read more

Is it normal at 27.4 weeks to have bad pelvic pain/pressure accompanied with stomach/back pains and increase in discharge ?

Yes, confer with OB: Pelvic and low back pain are common in second and third trimesters. Your ob/gyn will be able to decide if these symptoms are normal, based upon the size of the fetus and position.
If pain radiates down the legs or is increasingly severe, a herniated lumbar disc should be considered. The increase in hormone production (elastin) causes a laxity (relaxing) of the large ligaments around the sacroiliac. ...Read more

I have started having urge to urinate and pelvic pressure around the same time that I have started swimming 3x a week. Could they be related?

Probably not: But maybe. Could be a urinary tract infection, which shouldn't have anything to do with the swimming. But it could be a yeast infection, or vaginitis (bv) — and if that is the cause it may be due to a change in the ph of the vagina that could have been caused by swimming. (not a common cause, but possible). ...Read more
