325477 tn?1250554909 I also start to feel better and better each day, someday I feel I am back to normal and almost like I am not pregnant. We are in the second trimester which I heard people call the "Golden Period" of pregnancy, so enjoy.... eternidad, zuz, aweeonetolove, I heard the coldness. Where I am is very very cold, the highest temp. was only -21 last week, we get snow almost everyday, it is so depressing. eternidad, don't you miss the warm sunny day in F.L.?
Avatar n tn My labor was more persistent and was the abs and stomach, not in the pelvic area. You are at a stage where the pelvic and vaginal are will be stretching and tightening more to hold the weight of the baby. Sounds to me like you are fine.
Avatar f tn It is perfectly normal to have braxton hicks threw out your second and third trimester. Are the contractions painful? If you think your having real contractions and you can time then closer then 10 minutes apart and arnt yet 37 weeks you should go to the hospital. Braxton hicks are just your body's way of preparing for labor and are absolutely nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn When BH contractions are less than 6 minutes apart at any point in pregnancy, then it can lead to labor, especially once you're in your third trimester or at the end of your pregnancy. Since you say they are not painful yet, you are probably only in the very beginning of labor, the first stage.
Avatar n tn The only other thing that the radiologist told me is that I have a lot of fibroids, and the biggest one was 6 cm in length. One of them is in the posterior as well. In the first trimester I did have some bleeding but that was diagnosed coming from a polyp that was right at the cervix. That bleeding turned to small spotting and that was all of it. Then during my last phase of the 17 week I noticed that discharge was different than what I was having before, it was more watery.
1816154 tn?1463433618 i go back to him on the 30th of this month and this will be my last time and then that day he will be giving me my referral to the other doctor up in the tricities for my VBA2C!! im so excited. i told my doctor about the braxton hicks i had and he told me that they were contractions just braxton hicks so its a stronger braxton hick than a normal one. i dont know if that makes since to you ladies=).
Avatar n tn I am just as tired in my 2nd as I was in the 1st!!! I NEVER got the burst of energy. I keep looking for it to kick in!
Avatar f tn My first pregnancy wasn't this bad. And now I have to look forward to it in the second and third trimester too?! Oh NO!
Avatar f tn Which trimester was the hardest to deal with ?
1211078 tn?1277498169 I had other complications so I was scheduled for inducement but he started naturally a day before but b/c of heartbeat issues (nothing with the placenta) they had to do an emergency C-section right in the end. The bleeding had stopped around week 28 but I was on pills through. Please look for another opinion, do not give up on your baby and do not take this lightly.
7989976 tn?1403497224 For me though, I have just been soo exhausted! Second trimester i had soo much energy but now its like I barely have any. First trimester i was a bit tired, but third its way more lol. Also, ive been having more of my belly button hurting (which i heard is just the uterus expanding to make room for baby). Those are really the big two i have went through. My acid reflex came back this week (im 33 weeks now).
Avatar f tn Contractions feel like terrible period cramps for the most should start being a lot more active as it will start putting on a bunch of weight. Some women have their water break, feels like you are peeing and cant control it, others water never breaks. Some women lose a mucas plug amnd have a bloody show, others dont. Each pregnancy is special and unique in its own way. It may get increasingly harder to sleep...and you may get a lot hungrier because baby is growing so much...
Avatar f tn I'm 5 days away from having my baby and my 1st trimester was the worst 3rd I would say has been the best and the easiest for me everyone and every pregnancy is different
Avatar f tn I'm sure all could change though in the remaining 9 weeks I have left fingers crossed this wont be the case however!
Avatar f tn I know every women is different im just wondering things i should look for when the 3rd trimester hits. What happen for you ladys in the 3rd trimester ???
1523981 tn?1311322195 I couple days ago I started having 3-4 bowel movements a day. The second day I would get nauseated after having a bowel and now starting last night into today I started to cramp and feel nauseated after a bowel movement but they only last a few seconds. I am 34 weeks pregnant and just wondering if it could be braxton hicks, contractions, or something else?
Avatar f tn 26th and having a lot of contractions! My first son will be 4 on Oct. 6th so I'm just trying to keep this little guy in until after Oct. 6th!!!
Avatar f tn They come once in a while during the day it comes and goes.. it will last about 15 mins and just leave and come back later in the day. Last week my doctor told me my cervix is closed so I shouldn't be expecting this baby soon right?
Avatar f tn I had some in second trimester and they were just like my abdomen getting really hard and tight in places. Balling up or tensing so that it was uncomfortable to stand straight. Not exactly pain but discomfort. Usually the right side of my abdomen. Sometimes the center or lower part. I could touch my belly and feel the hardness.
Avatar n tn I've heard that you can feel Braxton-Hicks contractions sometime in the second trimester, if you know what you're feeling (i.e., if you have been pregnant before and can distinguish them from general aches and pains and muscles stretching).
Avatar n tn I'm 12+3 weeks pregnant with my second baby.
Avatar f tn I hope I wont feel too much like ****. My second trimester has been wonderful. Im just afraid that the third trimester will hit me hard.
1399033 tn?1449591379 This is the first time I've ever made it this far in a pregnancy so I wanted to know if others go through this or if in the first trimester you don't feel hardly anything and then the second starts feeling like the first? My nipples have also gotten rather tender all of a sudden too...
571708 tn?1239641297 Hi, i've had a bit of a scare this morning, when i had some bright red blood on my tissue. I thought i was past having to worry about that being 'safely' in the second trimester. I know some bleeding is normal in the first trimester with implantation, but not seen anything about 2nd trimester. I'm 14 weeks 5 days.
