Hello. Just curious if anyone out there has had this.
I am 36 1/2 weeks pregnant and sometimes I feel like the baby is grinding its head down by my cervix. I feel like a hand is gonna stick out. It happens every so often.
Could it be the baby engaging lower into my pelvis??
This feeling is similar to having swabs done or a pap smear. Its soo uncomfortable.

Yes, me too. It also happened with my last baby. I tend to dialate early, (though they're never born early just fast)...I wonder if this low riding baby, cervix pressure thing could be the reason.

I have been having that for weeks! I asked my MW and she said it is from the baby turing its head or moving. She also said it is the cervix dialating/thinning...they sure and uncomfortablle, huh? HTH!

I've felt this on occasion for several weeks. My baby has sat very low the entire pregnancy, and sometimes he just felt like he was going to fall out - literally! Thankfully, he hasn't.

I stood up yesterday and that entire area was numb! It only lasted a few minutes and I am sure it was just the baby sitting on a nerve or something. When I told DH though he freaked out and told me to go to the Chiro. I haven't been going becuase we don't have insurance and all our money is going to the midwives right now. Since he told me to go however, I think I will take him up on it.

Other than that, I do often have the feeling that the baby is trying to stick his hand or foot out.

Yes, i get those often. I call them cervical zingers. They are very uncomfy.
