Many times during the day, I feel pressure down low and it feels like the baby is about to fall out! This happens especially when I am using the bathroom. I honestly feel like I need to keep my legs closed all of the time!<br><br>
Does anyone else feel the same? I am 33 weeks today...

We had our first ultrasound the other day and our lil one has her head down against my cervix. The tech had to push her head out of the way to get a pic of my cervix. I keep having this weird sensation when I stand like the baby is so far down that everything instantly swells. I hope when the time is right she does just "fall out" lol.

Hmmm...does the head being on the cervix cause a tingly, prickly feeling? I have been getting that a lot lately. And yes, when I have to pee, I feel sometimes like checking to see if it's one of those stories that you hear about on the news..."Mom squats to pee and gives birth on the john!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have the feeling alot nowadays. Especially when i go to poop, and then I start thinking of those stories you hear about babies coming out unexpectedly too! sometimes i really start to worry and i have to check to make sure there's nothing coming out!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Lucky for me, today hasnt been bad, but I did kind of check after using the bathroom this morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

ooohooohooh! ME ME ME!<br><br>
I feel like my baby is about to fall out. And my perineum feels swollen and uncomfortable if I spend too much time on my feet.<br><br>
I don't have that Bowling-Ball-Between-The-Legs feeling yet, though. I 'spect that to happen in a couple of weeks.<br><br>
Last night, I swear, I felt like my baby was trying to claw the way out of my cervix and vagina. I've never felt it so intense before. It was actually quite painful and made me gasp and involuntarily moan, though I usually handle pain quite well. I really hope it was baby hands I was feeling and not baby feet, though it was so <i>strong</i>.

Me! My little prince hasn't "dropped" yet but I've been getting that pressure for about 4 weeks. (I'm 32weeks now) Its mainly when I've been standing or walking around alot though.

between that foot in my rib and the head butting and the feeling of a flour sack hanging on my pubis, I am soooo tempted to get one of those belts now. The parasite just won't move up, and jabs me every time I sit down. I went for a "walk" at target today, and ended up having to do bizarre yoga twists through the isles just to get relief from that foot!! It's even given me nightmares, as I wear a 13, and the donor was a 12--nightmare baby came out with adult sized feet that got stuck in my rib on the way out!! (but that dream was much better that the "eel-child" one). I'm about ready to have it finish growing and get on out. I'm getting those little pinches too now and again, and have this vision of the kids in the hall skit with the guy saying "I'm crushing your head", but it's the kid in there doing it, with little tiny fingers on my ligaments.

I haven't used the belt too much because the kid has not been stuck in my pelvis so much this week.<br><br>
If that is what it feels like to have the head engaged, I hope this kid waits until I go into labor!
