So this is my 2nd pregnancy. I have a 4 1/2 year old son and am currently 16 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins. This pregnancy is so different from what I had with my son. I have been so paranoid that something is going to go wrong with my pregnancy. I have been having discharge pretty much the entire pregnancy, except sometimes it would go away but then come back. I also I have been having pelvic pressure since about 10 weeks off and on, where I just feel like the babies are going to fall out. It seems to be worse in the mornings after I get up from sleeping or if I am walking around a lot. So far in my pregnancy I have had 5 ultrasounds. I have 2 a month, one briefly with my ob. and one with the perinatologist. They are constantly monitoring me and I am telling them about my concerns. They keep telling me that because I'm pregnant with twins I will feel things "much sooner" and not to worry, this is normal. Yesterday, I had an ultrasound and they said my cervix was very long which is great because that means less chance of pre-term labor. But right before I left the doctor said I had "low placenta." He didn't explain what it was just that most of the time it corrects itself later on in the pregnancy and that I have nothing to worry about right now. He did say that if I had bleeding to go to the hospital right away, which made me incredibly nervous! I feel like the doctors keep telling me things are "normal" but I just don't feel like they are. It's hard to find information about what's considered normal in a twin pregnancy and a lot of things I research say to ask you doctor, well I did, and they are so short with me and just tell me that things are fine. Is there anyone that has had these same problems with their pregnancy and doctors? I should also mention that throughout my ENTIRE pregnancy, all I have ever had in terms of being examined was ultrasounds. I have only had 1 vaginal/pelvic exam at 7wks when I had some spotting but since then it's only been ultrasounds. I am also pretty small 5ft.
I never had issues with any pelvic pressure, though, but another midwife told me that pregnancy in general puts a lot of stress on the pelvic area, especially a twin pregnancy...so maybe that is the reason.
Hope you will be feeling better. Congratulations on your twins! Mine are fraternal, too.
