      Hanice, are you getting proper medical care while you are pregnant?
      Are you sure it is only one child you are carrying? Sounds to me like you are expanding rapidly and maybe a bit fast and big for just one child.
      Is your blood pressure OK? You could be carrying just one child but have a lot of fluid around it.
      Stabbing pains in belly and back pains are normally caused by your ligaments stretching to make room for the weight of the baby as it gets bigger. You can get special body corsets to help support the weight, but to be honest you shouldn't need it if this is your first baby, as all your muslces will be strong enough.
      Don't know about itching skin. Check your doctor about that - it doesn't sound normal to me.
      The panic attacks could be caused because you are nervous and frightened. Did you have them before you were pregnant?
      Please see your doctor or midwife.
      They will be able to advise you better than strangers on an internet forum.
      Btw, welcome to hubpages smile

          i'm glad to hear that you are going to the doctor in a few days. i think izzym gave you some woderful questions to ask the doctor. as did a few others here. there's really not much advice i can give. as i've never been pregnant. but about those panic attacks, when you begin to have one try to get sat down and take a few deep breaths. make sure people are around you when this happens. maybe a husband or someone will let you hold their hand until you are able to relax. if you are this nevous during your pregnancy you may want to talk to your doctor about your risk of post partum depression.(serious depression after the birth of the baby)
          also i wonder what kind of support you have? husband, parents, friends? someone should be helping you and offering support especially during your panic attacks. i have panic attacks and it helps to have someone their to comfort you. good luck.

            i have just about everyone behind my back...my parents,siblings,fiancee,and since i have ahuge family everyone is here to support me.they all try and help,but the things they tell me to do or the advise i give jus hasnt cut it..i try and deal with the pain everyday.but since i have alot of problems with my health(these things starting when i was young) its hard to find sumthin to work for me.like i had a kidney infection,i get migrains that can make me black out for days(hasnt happend since i got pregnant,but i still get the headaches),i get sick ealisly(and with a small house full of 9 people)its hard not to get sick.soi try day in and day out.i try and get out of the house as much as possible but i never had panic attacks before,never really had back pain(used to weight lift so i had a good back),i used to be able to walk miles without going crazy,and wanting to sit down every 5 min.i guess im just not used to this whole pregnancy thing yet

      How come people are at a loss for the simple solution of the medical field?  Get your ass to the doctor.  If you don"t like what he\she has to say...go to another.  There are very simple remedies for ignorance.  Educate yourself.  Go on line.  Find a sister of common forte.  Either that or, do what women did once upon a time and grin and bear it!!!!!!!!!!

        such an easy thing for someone to say who doesnt know the history behind someones medical history.there are things the doctor says i can and cannot do or take.because 1)im high risk pregnancy and my baby might have down syndrome 2)i have major medical problems of my own 3)the things i would take ona regular basis to control my medical problems i cant take because of the babys sake.so before u come off all high and mighty like u try to,and u think u know whats best.stop.think.and have common scense.u really think that someone who has a doctor and is in so much pain hasnt asked questions???? since my doctor and i havent came to a conclusion i thought sumone who might have had similar problems might be able to help....

    i would say maybe a problem with blood pressure.  doesnt sound really normal to be in so much pain and having so many problems at 6 months.  you need to get checked completely and maybe also ask for an ultrasound just to be sure.  good luck

    Yes, I agree with the above posts. I was 93 pounds when I got pregnant with my first baby. I did have some stretching pains in my back, hips, and sides. I put on a lot of weight very quickly and started getting stretch marks at 5 months. You really should see a doctor for your issues. The panic attack symptoms could be blood pressure or hormone issues. If you don't have enough hormones, your body could abort. It happened to me and I had to be on IV's of meds for 6 months to stop preterm labor. Australian Emu oil is wonderful for new and old stretch marks. It prevents them, treats the ones you already have, and can be used on old ones. It also is a great pain relief and anti inflammatory when rubbed in to painful areas thoroughly. It is very safe to use while pregnant. I used cocoa butter for stretch marks also but the emu oil is one  that works wonders for both stretch marks and pain. GOOD LUCK and see a doctor ASAP!!!

    Could it be a sign of pre eclampsia, which is related to blood pressure?  Though I have two children, I cannot remember at what stage this can appear. It's just that I remember reading something about very itchy skin once and not sure if it was a symptom of pre eclampsia. You should see a doctor, if it is that is it treatable under medical care with lots of rest. Also, urine samples should show protein. Good luck and phone a doctor or midwife asap!

    I think you are right Polly c. The itchy skin is a symptom of something like that - could google it I suppse. Not normal anyway.
    Getting big too soon could be blood pressure....or, what is the other thing? diabetes in pregnancy I think.

    I looked up the itchy skin, apparently it can be a sign of a pregnancy related liver problem but that is in the worst case scenario, itchy skin can be normal as well.

    As people have suggested, it's really important to seek medical advice otherwise you are just going to get a lot of mixed opinion which may be inaccurate. It will put your mind at rest as well. Hope you get on ok.

    Ultrasound of lower abdomen required to be done  urgently to see the condition of baby and the cause of pain.Visit nearby Gyanecologist as soon as possible.

    you should have medical attention by your side and when at home, you should stay with somebody in the house in case you need help on anything.
