Are you drinking enough water? Because dehydration will cause cramping pains. I learned that the hard and expensive way with a trip to the ER. Drink water before you get thirsty. If you wait til you're thirsty dehydration is setting in.Try drinking a glass of water an hour, or setting a water alarm clock to remind you. In fact grab a glass of water before you read the rest of this.Pressure in the pelvic region is totally normal to feel when sitting, walking, lying down etc. It's your uterus pushing down on your pelvis, which is begining to open up to make way for your baby. Pressure and swelling in the pubic region is also normal, and uncomfortable. I don't have a cure for this, I am going through it, too and it's really uncomfortable. Spoke about it with my doctor who told me in all honesty I'm going to be feeling a lot more pressure before it get's better. I no longer swing one leg into the car at a time, instead I enter butt first because I learned the hard way that when I try one leg at a time it is really really painful in the pubic region. Doc said it's normal.I hate to tell you but it gets worse, the pain, pressure and general discomfort toward the end of pregnancy is like the dirty little secret no one talks about. I'm 38 weeks along, I get up to pee every hour at night, have hemroids and huge swollen feet. My husband reminds me at night that thats now one less day of still being pregnant. But it's all worth it!!Overall the best best thing you can do is ask lots of questions. Call your doctor every day if you want/need to. Write down your questions and concerns so you don't forget what to ask. Don't be shy or afraid of asking a 'dumb' question, don't be afraid to say you don't understand their answer, or need more explination. They've heard it all before, and really are there to help you. Remember they are the experts, and have the answers you need. Never lie or with hold anything from your doctor.Call your doc about the 'bloody show.' You can lose your mucas plug and it does not necessarilly mean you are going into labor. You can also go into labor without losing it first. Some women lose theirs a week or two ahead of time, but call your doc to be sure becasue there are simple tests they can do to see if you really are going into labor.Trust the process, your body knows what to do. Get plently of rest, cut out salt and caffiene and soda, even diet (carbonated water causes bloating, the last thing you want right now) of course you don't smoke or do any drugs, and please please drink water!!!!
