Really bad RLP (I think)

OK, ladies, I'm starting to get nervous. The past few days my discomfort has been increasing (sciatica, RLP, pressure, etc) just like it should now that my little one is not so little anymore. But this morning I woke up with pretty bad RLP. I laid back down and it didn't help. I went to work and it has gotten worse all day. I am now parked in my bed because I can't move hardly at all without feeling like I'm being stabbed in the lower right abdomen. As long as I'm completely still, no pain (which is why I'm assuming it's RLP). But moving even just a little is excrutiating. What the heck is going on? Has anyone ever experienced this before? With my last pregnancy, I would get the RLP from changing positions too fast but would relax for an hour or so and then it was fine. This won't seem to go away:smileysad: Anyone have any insight?

I just got home from L&D - it was just really bad RLP:) I felt silly, of course. The thing that really had me worried was that I have a lot of BH contractions, but because of the RLP they felt like painful, labor-style contractions. Baby Girl was doing just fine. I had 4-5 contractions while I was there (about 1 per hour) and the OB was fine with that. Everything else checked out fine. They gave me Lortab to help with the pain - it did not. It definitely made it asier to stand and walk for a while, but when she moves she bumps her head against that ligament and it is very painful. The Lortab did not halp with that at all :( So I'm hanging out and resting for the weekend, since rest is supposed to be the best thing for RLP. Thanks for the support, ladies!

Ditto to Dani...no need to feel silly at all! You were taken care of, confirmed the source of your pain and that in itself will give peace of mind. You can never be too careful and I'm so glad yoire home now to rest.
