Pressure in pelvis / feeling heavy

I’ve been having some pains, that I believe are linked to early labour signs. Since this started a few days ago, I’ve noticed a lot more pressure in my hips and pelvis? Has anyone else noticed this? And it feels like she’s supper heavy, standing up and turning over is so painful because of how she’s sat 😩

I was feeling good today and now the night shift has me so irritated!

Just need to vent. Feeling malnourished, tired, overstimulated, and exhausted. I have a 14 month old and a 2 month old. Lawd! It’s usually not that bad but my toddler was doing everything I said “no” to today. Testing my patience

Sleep and breathlessness

28 weeks on Wednesday and for the past 3 weeks, sleeping is so difficult. I wake up at 1 or two almost every night and stay awake until 4.30. Every time I lay down, it feels like I’m being suffocated/choked. I can feel the pressure in my lower throat. I have mild asthma but this ain’t the same feeling. It’s like...

Is this ok?

I’m 6 weeks postpartum and have been getting dark brown discharge like I was coming near the end of my bleeding. For the last few days I’ve suddenly started bleeding bright red again. It isn’t enough to fill a pad but it is more than the discharge I’ve been having. I could put 1 pad on a day and not soak through it ...

Back ache and braxton hicks

Hey all. Currently 38+5 and Ive Been getting Braxton hicks for weeks now, but over the last couple days they've been near constant and a lot more intense.

Not many symptoms

I’m 7 weeks tomorrow (calculated from the first day of last period) and have no symptoms other than sore boobs (especially in the morning), tiredness, a very hot body and thirst.
