3rd pregnancy. 33w1d. Is it normal to start feeling pelvic pressure this early? No fluid leaking.

3rd pregnancy. 33w1d. Is it normal to start feeling pelvic pressure this early? 
No fluid leaking.

The pressure sensation is usually due to the expanding uterus putting pressure on the pelvis and/or ligaments stretching. Increasing intensity of the pressure or waxing/waning may indicate contractions and would trigger a call to your doctor or going in for a check. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Fluid leaks from your blood vessels, your intestines and other areas and is absorbed by other systems within your body to keep things moving. It is totally normal. When there is a large amount of fluid, that becomes abnormal and we need to find the cause of the fluid. ...Read more

What does "no significant free fluid in pelvis" mean on ultrasound? Had baby 2 months ago and still no period yet (4months after). Normal?

Good news: In women, it can be normal to have a small amount of fluid in the pelvis, usually from a ruptured ovarian follicle.

Sometimes, radiologists report something like "no significant free fluid in pelvis" instead of saying "there is physiologic free fluid", or "there is a small amount of free fluid".

Any way you say it, it means there is no concerning amount of fluid to have to further investigate! ...Read more

Facial swells, pelvic ultrasound shows slight fluid retention, kidney and liver functions are normal. What might be the cause of the swelling?

Fluid retention: Your fluid retention is most likely due to hormonal factors. Follow a low salt diet by not adding salt to cooking or at the table. If fluid retention persists, your physician may order a mild diuretic for you to use temporarily. Be sure to take a potassium supplement if you do take a diuretic. Your physician may also test your thyroid status. ...Read more

Left pelvic pain, bilateral ovarian cyst R 2.8 L 2.4, Lcyst septated (CUL-DE-SAC normal. No fluid or mass)Normal Doppler and spectral limits. Meaning?

Small septated cyst: Cysts that small are frequently part of normal ovulation. A cyst is simply a fluid filled sac on the ovary. A septated cyst means that there is a tissue wall dividing the cyst into at least two parts.

Cesarean 6wks ago did some TVA & pelvic floor moves & tonight my incision stings when I lay down no fluid leaking or fever just the stinging normal?

Probably fine: After 6 weeks, your incision should be healed and able to handle light activity. I am assuming that your surgeon has evaluated your incision as well.

Some stretching of the incision can initially lead to some stinging feelings. If in doubt tho, call your doctor and have the incision looked at. ...Read more
