I am 29 weeks. Does anyone get that lower pelvis pain/pressure, even while walking briskly? Running makes it bad too. I usually stop running after only about 1/2 mile, because it just gets more intense. It feels like whatever tissue/tendons/ligaments are all along the underside of my belly, just can't really hold the weight, and are protesting. Sometimes I get it when I am even sitting too long, and I get up and pace around to make it better.
I googled and read it is normal. I am just not sure if I should push through it while running/walking or not. Sometimes it makes me walk funny and I literally can't walk normally, like you would walk if your bladder was really full and you were super uncomfortable.
I wanted to keep running though, so I am frustrated.
Is lifting weights safe? I know when I lift free weights, no matter what exercise I'm doing (legs, arms, back, etc), my ab region does tense up, just to support my body during the lift. I worry that is bad for the baby, that tensing up of the ab region? Thoughts? I suppose women were meant to carry things, etc, while pregnant, but something about intentionally lifting heavy things like that, and feeling that tension, seems wrong to me. Not sure how to feel.
