    Hi Tori!
    Wow, I LOVE this website! I have a question for you. I am 17 weeks pregnant, and have experienced some spotting, with this sore feeling in my abdomen, and going down into my vagina. The spotting has since stopped, but I am still feeling this pressure in my vagina. I went to the emergency doctor where I live and they told me I have a low lying placenta, and said the pain is just Round Ligament pain. But is it normal to feel them pretty much all day until I lay down? Even when I’m sitting I feel the pressure in my vagina. Does being overweight cause more pains or pressure? If you could give me any insight to understand what’s going on that would be great!
