ok so that is not true I can walk, but now I know what a true 9 months pregnant waddle feels like. It feels like my pubic bones are about to seperate and the pain and pressure are so bad you can't help but go from side to side legs out wider than normal. Throw in the need to pee and sharp pains down there as soon as I go from sitting to standing just for fun. Does this mean I might not make it 10 more days or is it normal to feel like this at 36 weeks? Please feel free to share if you are experiancing this pain/ pressure as well.

What you are experiencing is pretty normal for where we are in pregnancy.  It's just a pain.  I have long said that  the best day of pregnancy is delivery day.  That is the light at the end of the tunnel!  If you start having menstural - like cramps with any consistency, call your doc ASAP.  With you have previa, you can't take the chance of actually going into labor!

Yep, pretty normal these days. I can barely walk in the evenings. I'm with Jules though, when in doubt call the dr. No risking it with the previa!

Yep.  I'm having it too.  Anything to get my hips apart and relieve the pressure...of course then I have to move and that hurts!  Ugh.

Yes, it's totally normal and I'm feeling all that also. Be careful with your previa, though. When in doubt, call the doc! Good luck with your ultrasound today!

I absolutely understand your pain. I just went to my chiropractor yesterday due to a pop in my pelvic area and pain. I could hardly walk! He had to adjust my pubic bone due to separation. I was so happy to walk out of his office. Still taking it slow so I don't get out again. I am 37 weeks and really hoping I am not in pain for these last 3 weeks.
