there are many things it could be but it does sound like a uti or a bladder infection i had that also i had really bad round ligament pain that made me so tender in one spot it hurt so badly i think you will be ok i doubt its a cyst hun all these aches and pains are normal if something was truly wrong you would know right away no questions

That sounds like no fun - I hope you're feeling much better! I've had one UTI (pre-pregnancy) and it was no fun - I know how much just normally having to pee makes me uncomfortable and pressure on my bladder hurts then, I can imagine how much worse that would be, magnified by a UTI. *hugs*

 

Also, this is my first baby - what do Braxton-Hicks feel like? I'm assuming they are like a tightening of the uterus, but one that's kind of rhythmic, not a steady tightening that stays for a while and then goes completely away? I've had the later a few times over the past few days, and just kind of ignored it.

Actually, at least from what I remember last time, BH do stay tight for a while and then goes away.  But this is more towards the 35 week area, so maybe it's different this early.

My experience with BHs is same as Conchobar, and with my daughter I started getting them around 25-26 weeks. My uterus would tighten for a while then release. I actually ended up in the hospital because I was getting them regularly (every 5 min or so) non-stop. They called it pre-term labor, but I didn't really start to dilate. If you get them regularly you should call your midwife. I've been getting them this time since around 17-18 weeks but they aren't regular so I'm not concerned.

There's a great book by a physiotherapist who's had a lot of success with even really severe SPD. I borrow it from the local library, but it's fairly cheap to buy. I'd even consider taking it in to your physio (the author actually recommends that at one point, I believe.) http://www.amazon.com/Relieving-Pelvic-During-After-Pregnancy/dp/0897934806/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314252077&sr=8-1

 

Kmom also has a nice section about it on her website http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/pubicpain.htm
