Thanks for all the tips. I of course started kegels right away, and I read that squats were good for strengthening the pelvic floor. Maybe that's only if you don't have an issue already.
Before I was pregnant I was feeling like the maya massage was something that I needed. I had a tough birth with my daughter and then my son was an emergency c/s. My body has been through a lot. (I spent last night crying to my husband that I just want a "normal" experience this time. Luckily, I have very healthy and beautiful children, so can I really be upset?) Anyway, I wanted to get the massage done, there is someone about an hour 1/2 from here. But I assumed it would be dangerous in pregnancy. I'm going to definately contact them.
I just bought one of those bella bands to get me through the in between stages of clothes, and I noticed that the support felt really good. maybe I'll wear that weather I need it or not. I wish I still had my official belly support from my first pregnancy.
My husband will be disappointed about the no sex thing (, but more concerned about my health, for sure) I just started getting energy back. Oh well, someday...
Counting the minutes until the MW office opens.
Let's stay in touch. I'm interested in having a buddy through all of this. It's always good to know someone else is overcoming a similar issue.
So, it seems as though what I was feeling was my cervix. The difficulty urinating was due to the positioning and maybe slight constipation. (TMI!) She didn't seem too concerned, told me to work on anti-gravity exercises, and it will have to move up.
I asked her if she knew anything about the mayan abdominal massage, and she hadn't heard about it, but thought it was a great idea. I'm definately going to attempt that in hopefully a few weeks, I think I'll look into the self-massage as well. It would be nice to do it myself in the future.
