I am sorta annoyed because I called my birth center this morning hoping to talk to one of my midwives and the owner (who is also a midwife) talks to me instead. I don't know what round ligament pain feels like, but I described what I've been feeling, on and off, since 2am Thursday morning. All I wanted to hear was "that's normal, yep it's RLP", and instead she told me to put on a belly band, drink a glass of water, and lay with my feet up and see if that helps. What if this is a gall-bladder issue or I pulled something? She didn't tell me it was RLP. Ugh. I rarely have issues, but this doesn't feel like a "normal" kind of pain, because I'm sore in varying amounts all day. She did say it's possible my baby had a growth spurt (um yeah, I gained 14 lbs in 2 months) and perhaps the ligaments are being stretched a lot right now. But I thought RLP went away? Only happened now and then?
Anyone else have experience with RLP around 27 weeks? Does it go from sharp pain to soreness throughout the day? Did you feel it more when you twist slightly or when you pee?
The belly band is helping a little, but I'm more worried that I have some other issues going on in there, not baby related, that might go unnoticed. This is the frustrating part of my birth center. They are very hands-off medically when all I want is someone to disprove the possibility of something major. I sure hope this subsides.
And now I'm done ranting. I haven't gained any weight the last 2 weeks, so I guess it was a spurt.
