Horrible pelvic pain should I be induced at 38 weeks?

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    Hi I'm almost 37 weeks pregnant and having horrible pelvic pressure n pain. I run after a 5 n 3yr old every day. It hurts to walk or do anything at all. Ive been getting hard braxton hicks every single day n was wondering if I should go ahead n ask to be induced at 38 weeks? Thanks!

    I'm right there with ya! I'm 30weeks and have a 5 n almost 3 year old. Plus I work on my feet 30hrs a week. Totaly exausted and having lots of contractions. I would say no to being induced though. My opinion, but its a harder way to go. Forces you body into contractions. And the pitocen makes them harder, longer, and closer together. Which puts a lot more stress on the baby. especialy since your body takes a while to catch up. Its almost always longer and harder when induced. Im guessing this one is going to come early on its own seeing how i'm feeling. And those last few weeks give her a lil more weight she needs to make it out here. It sucks, but its only a couple more weeks. Down to days now!! Good luck either way :) Sooo close now!

    Mine are 5 and 2 and Im still early and tired and in pain. But You should relax and try to wait it out. Get help wit kids so you can be on some type of bedrest. My doctor wouldnt induce me a 40 weeks, he made me go til 41, and finally i went into labor. Just be patient. ITs not very comfortable but better to overcook baby then under. lie down with plenty of soft stuff, pillows, liquids and snacks. practice breathing to help with pain.

    Wut does the doc say about how ur feeling? 38 weeks is safe, and its entirely up to you if you wanna ask. But either way telling them how u feel n Wut ur going Thru will help.

    I am the same way but I think its cuz I am carrying twins

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @sariemama3 she said she would induce me anytime after the 37 week mark. I'm leaning toward getting induced because my hubby has to go out of town alot coming up n he doesn't wasnt to miss his first boy being born. Even standing doing dishes causes horrible pain. It's like hes riiight there going to pop out! :( I'm just miserable. My last baby, a girl was almost 9lbs n dr said my boy is measuring big too! I just can't take much more.

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @baby_girls hats off to you!!!! :)) I couldn't imagine carrying more than one!!

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    Sorry, that smiley came out wrong lol I meant ^:)^

  • baby_gurlsbaby_gurls February 2011

    Ya and my daughter just turned one lol

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @baby_gurls whoaaaaaaaaa!!!! Thats alot to handle!!!

  • sariemama3sariemama3 February 2011

    Id say go ahead n ask

  • sariemama3sariemama3 February 2011

    iI kno how that feels my 1st was 9 lbs 11 ounces very big! he was 2 wks over his due date n I was too scared to ask for induction n finally she induced anyway. even her nurse was surprised she had let me go for so long after my date. it really sucked that last month everything I did was so uncomfortable

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @sariemama3 jeez!!!! :-t thats awful! I was overdue 2 weeks with my first lil girl but it was bearable. This pain isn't. I'm even getting pain in my upper inside thighs when I walk :/

  • sariemama3sariemama3 February 2011

    U poor girl! Yea I would ask. Pregnancy should be a good or if not good at least bearable experience to make caring for ur newbie that much more enjoyable when its over. I bet it kinda feels like giving in or somethin when its u asking n not the Dr but she wouldn't have given u the open option right away if she didn't agree that it was a good

  • sariemama3sariemama3 February 2011

    or acceptable option for u

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @sariemama3 I finally had my appt yesterday n the dr said she will induce me march 16th if I dont go before then! :)) I'm so excited!!! I honestly dont think I will make it till then though cause the braxton hicks are getting stronger every day! Is tgat a sign???

  • sariemama3sariemama3 February 2011

    U kno wut I never had braxton hicks. Weird? But I'm sure there has to be some effect on ur uterus just like walking a lot or orgasm could have to send u into labor. Good luck girly! I hope u have a smooth and happy birth! Wishing u the best. I can't wait but I gotta long way to go til Sept

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @sariemama3 I've heard that the bh contractions help dilate your cervix? I'm really hoping they do anyways! :) Lol! My first two pregnancies, both girls, weren't that bad, but this lil man has thrown me for a loop! Only good thing was no morning sickness. Is this your first?? And thank you very much!! :))

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    Wrong.smiley lol :)

  • Kmose77Kmose77 February 2011

    Ya, the braxton Hicks are real contractions, they are just lighter practice contractions. Everyone had them but like me first timers often have no Idea. As they get harder and more frequent they turn into "real" contractions. Which becomes labor. Mine are already getting pretty crazy. Im only 30weeks, so im trying to take it easy; not so easy with a 5 and 3 year old. So I hear ya. I actually tried googleing pressure points that cause labor, and can't say if its worked but after doing them for about an hr, I woke up the next morning in labor! So sounds like your body is pretty darn ready. Im sure he or she will be here soon!! Good luck!

    @JessLang Oh no. My 3rd as well. 6yr old boy n 3 yr old girl. Hoping for a boy this time tho, I don't think my babygirl could handle another little diva lol

  • Kmose77Kmose77 February 2011

    lol I was kinda hoping for a boy as well, just cuz I wanted my princess to be the only princess. So maybe its a good thing this is a girl. They can balance each other out!! lol Im excited for the sister thing, I only had brothers :P

  • bummy87bummy87 February 2011

    My sister went 2o the physio and he manipulated her back she went into labor hrs later at 37weeks

  • Kmose77Kmose77 February 2011

    ya, you can try chiropractic or message! Or heck sex if your not to soar!! lol the sperm softens the uterus wall and stimulates labor. Plus the contracting from the act :P

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @saiemama3, @Kmose77, @bummy87 I'm hoping I go soon! My two girls are total opposite, one is a princess diva n the other is laid back n doesn't care lol I'm going to try heavy cleaning today n see if it does anything :)) I would rather go into labor before my sisters come to town. Its my last labor n my only boy. I dont want any drama or ppl trying to make it about them.

  • Kmose77Kmose77 February 2011

    So did it work?? Keep us posted! I Did two days worth of yard work while trying to get my baby girl out!! Didn't seem to work. Ended up having sex twice lol then did the pressure points.. Guess maybe everything together worked lol I hear ya on wanted to have it befor your sisters come!! I try to only have my husband around. My mom is over emotional, my mother in law is WAY to overbearing!! My mom is close, and my mother in law wanted to fly up right when she's born. My loving husband said, why don't you wait till she's a couple months old, and my wife has to go back work?? haha love him :)

  • hurstk28hurstk28 February 2011

    My doctor told me if i make it to 39 weeks she is going to induce since this is my 5th. They can't induce me any earlier per hospital policy.

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @kmose77 nothing has worked so far! :/ lol I really think I won't make it to march 16th though!! The contractions are getting stronger every day n the pelvic pressure is horrible!!!! Idk what to do about it!! :(

  • JessLangJessLang February 2011

    @hurstk28 good luck!!!! They will do it here anytime after 37 weeks :) when are you due???

  • hurstk28hurstk28 February 2011

    I am due May 22

  • mommyof3boysmommyof3boys February 2011

    All I can say is deal with it I'm 36 weeks and have had horrible pelvic pressure and pain since 27 weeks and I chase a4 and 2 yr old around everyday but it is usuallt best to let baby come on its own

    *LoViN My BoYs*
  • mommyof3boysmommyof3boys February 2011

    Google spd in pregnancy that might be what's up with you I been having pelvic pain I have physio for it and have to wear a support belt. It's very common just your pelvic bone rubbing and its called spd. Have look see if you have the same symptoms then go speak to your doctor! Good luck :)

  • hurstk28hurstk28 February 2011

    The only reason my doctor is inducing meat 39 weeks is because i am considered high risk. I get horrible headaches and cramps if my blood sugar goes too high or too low.

  • DueMay10DueMay10 February 2011

    Heck yes get induced lol. 37 weeks is full term, and no need to be in pain longer than you have to. Good luck!

  • kaylinkaylin February 2011

    I hate to b the negative one but I was induced at.38 weeks and my body did not take to it. I got very sick and after.docbroke my water I still did not go into labor. Ended in emergency.c section. I would say try to b paitent. Baby will come when baby is ready. And not always is it convient for us....hang in there

  • mz_sandersmz_sanders March 2011

    With my first I was induced at 38 weeks n 4 days like kaylin said my son really wasnt ready they had 2 suck him out. His head came out cone shaped. Hes fine now tho. I think its better 2 do it closer 2 ur due date. Im getting induced with this baby 3 days b4 my due date.

  • JessLangJessLang March 2011

    @mzsanders I was wrong lol I'm getting induced march 16th, which is my due date lol maybe I will go into labor before then! :) that would be great!! My dr changed my due date. I can't wait!!

  • My sister in law had the worst pelvic pain and her mw said it was because the babys hand was on her cheek.. you should def get on all fours and move that baby around a lil! She said that did wonders for how sore she got .. good luck dear!

  • JessLangJessLang March 2011

    @BabyGeesmama2B I've tried all that I can to get him to move :( it seriously feels like my pelvis %s ripping apart! Like im dilated n hes so low. My dr hasnt checked my cervix since I was 15weeks pg! Is rhat normal???

  • mz_sandersmz_sanders March 2011

    No my doctor started checking me at 35 weeks n 6 days every time I go in now he checks

  • @jesslang that is Soo Painful I'm sorry! Your Dr should probably have checked you though that sounds odd..I'd ask.. good luck in your birth I'm sure you'll do amazing!

  • JessLangJessLang March 2011

    Thank you guys!! :))

  • I have 3yr old and 13month old , im 36weeks im tired of preg too :/ so much painful running around house with kids ugh my 3yr old daughter is so brat lol but good luck!!:)

  • JessLangJessLang March 2011

  • SalasMommySalasMommy March 2011

    I have a lot of pelvic pressure n pain too I am 36 weeks and 2dys. Due april 2nd with a boy. I ubderstand that you r chasing your babies around but you should really take it easy. I know carrying the baby longer is unbearable but its better for them. I was getting really strong braxton hicks & I'm 2cm dilated for 4 days I have been resting completly I feel much better now I'm trying to hold off till the last wk of march atleast. Just take it easy everyone we r getting close its painful ;(
