I had this my last pregnancy right around 22-23 weeks...I was certain I was in pre-term labor or something, because it hurt extremely bad! I did end up going in, and was checked, and everything was just fine. My Dr. said the baby was just probably having a growth spurt, and it was round ligament pain...BUT, going in and hearing that gave me peace of mind, and I was able to focus on something other than that pain, knowing the baby was okay!

No experience with this, but I too would err on the side of caution and go on in if you need to.

Hey, Brandi. I think that's good advice from your doctor; I've always been one to error on the side of caution. That said - is there any chance you could have a UTI? Pressure in my lower stomach and near my pelvic area were the only symptoms I ever had when I tested positive for UTIs in pregnancy (later I added contractions to that mix of symptoms, but lower abdominal pressure was always present). If anything, maybe you could pop in the office for a clean catch just to be sure?
