How much pressure did you have towards the end of the pregnancy?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am having tons of cervical pressure right now. It really hurts. But no contractions, not even Braxton Hicks. I'm just looking for reassurance that this is normal.

Toward the end, I had the constant feeling that baby A was just going to fall right out. IT was pretty much all the time, but of course he was still way up high, just sitting on that perfect spot. I'm not sure if that's what you're talking about or not, but that was how I was feeling. No contractions or anything, just baby right THERE!

Yeah, it's like I could reach down and feel a baby head. Or, unfortunately in my case, a foot.

I have this. It gets worse when I've been sitting/laying down and then stand up. I do feel like baby A is just going to fall out! I pulled up some diagrams of the stations to try to figure out how low he really is... but couldn't really make sense of it. It does feel like he's right under my pubic bone though.

When I mentioned the pressure in my DDC, a lot of singleton moms said they have the same thing. So I vote normal!

I vote normal as well. The last few weeks before the boys were born I had so much pressure I would sometimes get on all fours rest my head on a pillow and just kind of hang out with my butt in the air. I'm sure I looked ridiculous but it helped with the pressure when it started feeling really uncomfortable.

Yeah. I remember a constant feeling like if I stood up too quickly, or maybe sneezed, that DD2 was going to pop out right there on the floor. So yeah, I think it's pretty typical. I took it as yet another signal to stay off my feet and rest. (I actually remember making a point of crossing my legs tightly, anytime I DID sneeze-- even though I KNEW she wasn't going to fall out, it sure FELT like it, and I guess I wasn't taking any chances. )

Oddly enough, it's better if I tailor sit. Side-lying, it's worse. Weirdness.

Ummm baby A has been head down engaged since 16 weeks. The pressure is insane atm. I am high risk of PTL so I have self checked cervix on days when I was contracting a lot and not sure if L&D visit was necessary. And yes, totally can feel her head. Its very odd! I can feel her head on my sacrum if I sit just right too.

So I'll say totally normal

That may be the babies' positioning affecting that.

The pressure in the final 6 weeks of pregnancy was so much that I thought when I stood up, a baby would just pop out. The ONLY thing that gave me any relief was going swimming.

Good luck, it's almost over!!

Starting around 28-29 weeks, I felt like babies were going to start falling out of me! I delivered at 32 weeks, but they were 5 and 6 lbs each, so I think it was just all the weight. They were big babies!
