Customer Question

Hi,I am currently 12 weeks + 3 days pregnant. I had my last scan 1 week ago and everything was fine. For the past day or so I have been experiencing pressure in my pelvis/vagina. It is a feeling of fullness. I also have had slight pinching pains on the top of my uterus, on and off. The feeling of pressure is worse when I have been standing for a while. Should I be overly concerned about either of these symptoms? I have a call in to my midwife and am awaiting her response.Thanks,

The ligaments of the uterus are pulled, which causes pain because the uterus is getting bigger. I don't think you need to worry about it if you don't have bleeding. Reassured.
