due date in question?

posted 1 decade 6 years ago
I just found out that I am pregnant. Great news, however the tests have not come back as to how far along I am. My last period was March 28, no this is not unusual for me, so its kinda up in the air as to how far along I might be.

My question is this, I seem to have all the signs of 4-5 months along, but I cannot find anywhere that mentions about this "heavy" feeling in my lower abdomen. I feel like its weighs a ton! Is this normal?

congratulations on your pregnancy! Very happy

the heaviness could either mean your furthur gone than you think,or it could be just the pressure on all your pelvis widening and things... i had alot of uncomfortable pressure down there from about 4months onwards,sometimes i had a sharp 'stabbing' like pain too... but i was just told it was pressure from baby and all my insides making way forhim.

The heavy feeling could also be due to how the baby is laying in you. My boy (second pregnancy) was laying transverse for weeks and I was SOOO much more uncomfortable from an earlier stage than I had been with my first pregnancy as he was pressing on things.
