So nice to be here and be pregnant! I am experiencing vaginal pressure like the need to push in labor with my second pregnancy. I have mentioned this concern to my midwives and they don't seem to think it is a problem. My cervix is intact and everything else is fine. Has anybody experienced this with their second pregnancy? I find it alarming because I went into preterm labor with my first and am wondering if my body is extremely sensitive and if it is gearing up for labor this early on. I ended up going full term with my first but still there is paranoia on my part! If you have experienced this please tell all!

I was fairly concerned at about the same time with this pregnancy. I've started doing pelvic floor exercises like crazy and also having lots of sex, and definitely noticed a difference!
Read this (and all her other information) before doing ANY Kegels - Why kegels are no longer recommended, (http://www.alignedandwell.com/katysays/1234-we-like-our-pelvic-floor/) She has an amazing array of DVDs for all kinds of biomechanical problems, including one called "Down There For Women" which I would highly recommmend if you are having issues reminiscent of prolapse. She is a true scientist, and will rock your world.
