i am 27 and a half weeks and in pain. this is my 2nd pregnancy so i dont think its labor. but it all started about a week ago i cramped just about everyday. i though maybe i need to go to the bathroom. went and thought i felt better. well it kept on doing this until yesterday. my stomach is so tight and hurts. about a inch above my belly button. and wraps all the way around to my back. which is also hurting. not lower back upper and middle. im short of breath and have a constant headache. tylenol eased it but did not get rid of it. i feel completly horrible. i never felt like this with my first. i alsoo dont really have an appitite. idk whats going on with me.

The first time I experienced the pain was after vaginal births, and then every one after that was a c-section. All of the vaginal births were induced as was the first c-section.

Question - was your previous delivery a caesarean, induced or normal labour? Sorry, not meaning to be nosy but depending on how you delivered last time could give more answers.....

First go to the doctor. If they are no help,try sitting with your feet up,I mean like on a couch or with your feet on another chair. I had something similar and the pain was unbearable. I finally figured out that I just needed to rest a lot more than usual, but definitely put feet up and if at all possible, lay down for a good 15-20 minutes every few hours, or when it was really bad. I do not know what causes it, but it happened with 5 of my children.

the pain is constant. never eases up. it feels like my stomach is so tight its going to bust open. ive got on my hands and knees to take pressure off and my legs and feet go numb. it hurts to sit, stand, or lay.

I am no professional but it sounds like braxton hicks contractions. I had them ever since the early parts of both of my pregnancies throughout that get worse the farther along u become. The doctors said usually women don't have them until later in pregnancy but I was different. It was so scary because they were really painful sometimes and uncomfortable. The tip is breathe through them. Headaches are normal through out pregancy. How is your blood pressure? High blood pressure can cause headaches. Call your doctor a nurse can call you back.
