I woke up the other day and when I sat up, my stomach was sitting on my lap, and I had crazy pressure in my pelvis and groin for 2 days and it was hard to walk. I could breathe easier and had no heartburn. This lasted two days. Today I still feel everything the same except the pressure down there is not so bad. Am I getting used to it or did it go up higher again?
My other 2 were c/s and Im so much more aware with this one since Im having a vbac. But since I never experienced a vaginal birth Im looking for all the signs of labor.

One lady on here posted a thread about her baby "flipping" up and down. SO, I guess it is possible. I feel the pain and pressure everyday, but it varies in intensity. It's either horribly uncomfortable or moderately uncomfortable. HAHA

This isn't uncommon. I'm having it happen a lot especially because I have excess amniotic fluid. Baby's head can be down there but still "bouncy" and can move up higher and go back down. My 3rd did this even in labor which caused me to stall a lot-but again, that was because of too much fluid. The heavy pressure is good in that it may be causing some dialation. Good luck!!

I notice that Cecilia is very, very high first thing in the morning when I get up, and then throughout the day she gets lower and lower until she's putting huge amounts of pressure on my pelvis and cervix and bladder. Then the same pattern the next day.

This is what was happening to me until about two days ago. Now she/he pretty much stays pretty low. I mentioned it to my midwife today and she didn't seem to think it was out of the ordinary. She did say that because the baby is so low now that she doubts if it will move back up.

Yes, they can drop and go back up.
They can engage and unengage and engage again...and again and again! lol... My friends DD who was born last October did this for a few weeks before she actually engaged for good and then was born!
