feels like something heavy is seating on my bladder?

For the past week in a half, I have had a lot of pains in the following areas all at once; breast tenderness, bloating, back pain, lower abdomen pain to the point when I walk it feels like something heavy is seating on my bladder. I've been drinking a lot of water and cranberry juice because I thought I had a possible infection. I've been constantly to the restroom as well..... These pains started two days after my cycle which was 8/3/11. A little info; I do have a daughter and my tubes have never been tied....What going on with me????

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (breast tenderness, bloating, low back pain, lower abdominal pain, heaviness or pressure over bladder) could also be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other symptoms. Wait and watch for your next periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
