Cervical Pressure, Anyone?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ugh it is not funny! I am 33 wks along and if I am doing too much on my feet, I feel this odd cervical/pelvic pressure. Goes away immediately when I lay down. Anyone experiencing this? Should I worry? Oh, yeah, and it is baby #3 so maybe that is why...

I am. I went to the Doc and they tested my urine, which they said was heavy with White cell count, so that meant I had a bladder infection or UTI. I am on an Anti now, but I still have some pressure.

I feel like he is occasionally ramming his head/arms into my cervix. Does that count? It hurts, especially when combined with a punch in the bladder.

He's making sure I'm doing my kegels, apparently.

Me me me!!! It's generally accompanied with uterine irritability. Often it means I haven't drank enough water during the day.

I've had some UTI symptoms, too, but my tests come out clean, so that just leaves me to think that the issue is back with quatity of water. Gotta work in that more.

Oh, and I'm 31.5 weeks with number 3!

Yeah, I've been having this @ 32 weeks. Mostly I'm feeling a lot of BH, but sometimes accomplanied by cervical pressure. As coyote said, I think I've been slacking on my water intake. I get tired of peeing so often and without consciously deciding to, I stop drinking as much water.

to myself!

that said, I think I'm also feeling the baby lower (and therefore more pressure)since I got Webstered, but it might also be wishful thinking on my part.

Thanks for the responses! I'll try not to worry then. Today it is so much better, I have no idea why!

I feel lots of pressure, it's getting really uncomfortable. I didn't remember this feeling at all with my first 2 so I dont' think they dropped so low in the pelvis.

Count me in too! Sometimes it hurts, other times it doesn't. Doing some waddling today. This babe is pushing down.

I really can't wait for my next app't in 2 weeks. I am going to have a cervical check to see if I am starting to progress.

Yeah, Ive been feeling this too, especially when Im walking around for a while. But, I know to lay down when this happens, because its been shortening my cervix.

Cervical pressure? Um...yeah.

Would it be socially unacceptable to walk around holding my crotch?

Yes! It feels like after vigorous, except without the sex. More common when I've been on my feet alot.
And I hope it doesn't mean he's coming early!
