Owww, my crotch!

Sweet Mother! I seriously think I have PSD. My pubic bone/area has been KILLING me for the past few weeks. It hurts to walk up an incline/stairs, roll over in bed, get out/in bed, lift my legs/bend knees to bring my legs up, you name it, it hurts my lady parts. I'm just now 21 weeks tomorrow (Thursday). If this is, indeed, what I think it is, and there is nothing I can do about it but sleep with a pillow between my legs, then I am in for a loooooooooooooooooong pregnancy. I'm already sleeping with a pillow folded in half between my knees/legs at night, and it's not really helping much. It's still killer to roll over/flip sides in bed at night. Not to mention, my lower back is starting to hurt too, especially at night when I'm rolling over or getting out of bed to go on one of my many pee breaks. I can't lay on my back without getting the super urge to pee anymore. :/ I just want to enjoy this pregnancy, and all I'm doing now is complaining and whining about how uncomfortable I am and how my pain I'm in. I've taken only a handful of Tylenol. I can count on one hand, probably, how many I've taken. Trying to just tough it out if I can. I'd just rather avoid putting any kind of meds into my body right now.

On another note, my "20 week" ultrasound is tomorrow, too. I am a little nervous about it, since we have not gotten an ultrasound at the dr's office since 8 weeks and haven't had any measurements taken either. I hope she's growing at the rate she should be, and that she measures where she needs to be at. It's nerve-wracking. But, I am excited to see her on the screen again. Even though I pretty much can anytime I want at work.

I've started feeling her move more. Sometimes I get a handful of soft, little jabs/movements at a time, and other times it's just once in a while. Hubby still hasn't been able to feel anything. I guess it's still kind of early for him. Hopefully it will happen soon. My belly is also starting to seem more round and protruding. I guess I'm looking more pregnant to other people. Stretch marks are starting to make their appearance. Lovely. I started rubbing some of the Palmer's Stretch Mark Lotion on my belly and hips in the morning after my shower. Sometimes I do it again at night before bed. I know it's not going to keep them away, but maybe it'll help some. Blah.

I think we've picked a name. Just haven't had the nads to post it on Facebook yet. I'm still afraid I'll change my mind, or mostly that one of the bajillion other girls I know that are having girls will jack it from me, then I'll be pissed. Seriously. Maybe I'm stupid but, I don't care. It's too much of an uncommon, unheard of name for someone else to steal it before my baby gets here.

My shower is planned for June 22. Seems like so long away, but it'll probably be here before I know it. It doesn't seem like we are already in the 5th month either! I've gotta get us signed up for the classes we want to take, if we are going to take them, by the end of this 5th month. The classes would be scheduled for the 7th month, so I guess I better get on it.

I have SPD (they may switch the letters around where I live) and have been in pain since 20 weeks, am now 25 weeks. I went to a physio who have me a support belt and some stretches to do. Nothing works for me but water. So I sit in my spa for 2 hours a day to get some relief. Same as you, walking, rolling over in bed etc is just excruciating. Being my first this wasn't exactly how I imagined this would go and yep I complain a lot too haha. All I can suggest is just to take things really slowly. When rolling over, or standing etc make sure you bring your knees together and draw in your core - it does help a little. The pain is worse when our legs are apart so bring them together when you move and only go up or down stairs one at a time. It sucks and I know exactly what you are going through. My pain is so bad at times I just lay down in defeat and cry, then my little girl will kick me and make me smile and all is ok again :-)

I know some people want to know for monogramming purposes, and I may just tell those people who ask in secret and ask them not to tell anyone. I just don't want uncreative, lazy bitches stealing my baby's name!

Ugh, that sounds miserable! My only comparison is my lower back, which I've now figured out is posterior pelvic pain and not lumbar pain and there is nothing I can do about it either. I also don't think you have to tell anyone your name if you don't want to. I'm a little weird about baby names and I'm happy to tell people some idea of names I have, but I don't want to actually give my baby a name until he/she is born. But that's just me. :)

I also have PSD and it's very hard to go about your day when you have to walk. We have stairs in our house and it takes about 3 minutes just to get completly up them lol. The further along you get with the added pressure of your belly makes it even harder that's why my maternity belt has became my best friend theses last few months.

That is exactly why we have not announced our little girls name because it's one of a kind but this Sunday at the baby shower we are telling the secret finally.

Birthing classes are awesome, even though this is my 2nd pregnancy I'm still learning new things about my body and birthing techniques. Meeting other moms-to-be is great, theres just so much to talk about. Best wishes on your journey through pregnancy.

Um, does this make us crotch twins? Please Lemme know how it goes at the doctor. I don't see mine for another 2 weeks. :(

Sorry you're so uncomfortable, sweet girl. That stinks big time! Definitely talk to the doc at the u/s. And enjoy seeing your baby girl on camera. You'll LOVE it.
It's perfectly fine to keep the name under wraps. Especially if you think bitches will steal it. Makes perfect sense.

Seriously talk to doctor about getting a maternity brace. It doesn't work instantly but after you have it on for a bit you'll notice some of the edge is gone and when you aren't wearing it you'll see the difference ;) GL. And remember the real fun starts once they are here!
