superflippy On the one hand, I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this. On the other hand, I'm kind of freaking out that I'm only 24 weeks and it feels like the baby's already trying to come out. I'm not having any contractions, just the pressure and pain in my cervix.

This intense pressure in my groin just means the baby's low, right? Doesn't necessarily mean he's on his way just yet?

Edited to add: oops, just realized that this thread is in the July 2008 forum. So I'm guessing that no one may see this since y'all are done! Moving my question elsewhere.

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that Dr. Bradley - who championed the "Bradley Method" of "husband coached childbirth" was raised on a farm & watched animals give birth & thought we could learn from them.

I started having the EXACT SAME SENSATION last night!! Exactly as you describe! I know it's not UTI or yeast infection, because the burning feels EXTERNAL - I've had both a UTI (Thankfully, only once in my life about 9 years ago) & a yeast infection & this is not what it feels like. Plus, I was at the hospital for an NST & they checked my urine, as they always do - no signs of infection.

I also figured it was just all that pressure of the baby getting lower. This morning, I'm 41W 1D, so I sure hope he'll be here soon!

Yep that is what it is like I'm very swollen, I had DH look to see what it was and he laughed at me. We raise pigs and they always swell up before labor and he asked me why humans wouldn't be any different. I guess b/c I've never really compared myself to a pig... So according to DH I'm close, but not maybe not that close. Sigh

Kidzaplenty Yeah, I was thinking yeast, perhaps. That is the only thing I could think that would do it, if it is not Baby doing it.

pazerific OUCH!!! could it be either a yeast infection or UTI? you can get tests for either/both over the counter at a pharmacy. i would definitely try that asap so you can treat whatever is going on before the babe comes.

mhaddon Ok my turn. I am laying in bed b/c I can barely walk My crotch feels like it is on fire. Not on the inside, but on the outside like i'm all swollen and rubbing or something odd. My groin is so sore and I can feel a ton of pressure when I stand up. My cervix pain is so bad sometimes I can not walk and have to squat for relief. She doesn't feel low all the time... How long will this last and is helping anything along or just making me miserable? I also had cramps all night, but no contractions

Oh and sometimes I swear it feels like my water is about to break I have so much pressure...
