I feel silly even wondering this, since this is my 5th pregnancy and I feel like I should remember, but I've been having intensely annoying cervical pressure today and I have no idea if this is normal or not. I don't remember ever feeling this with my other pregnancies - which doesn't mean I haven't, it could just have been lost in the recesses of my mommy mind, lol. Earlier this morning I felt the baby move in a strange way, and it was almost painful - as though I was getting a sharp elbow to the side, lol. Then I had some lower back pain, briefly. After that I felt what can only be described as a pap from the inside: there's something there, it is pressure, it's annoying, but it isn't painful. And it won't go AWAY, lol. I'm also feeling very low abdominal pressure in conjunction with this feeling of something *in there*, kwim?<br><br>
I'm still feeling baby movements, and I know that plenty of people feel all sorts of cervical things, but still - I'm a worrier. So I thought I'd ask all of you if you'd ever experienced this before. And if I maybe do something (hang upside down off the couch?) can I get the babe to move outta that area? Or is this something I should call my midwife about? (FYI I had an episode of worrisome ctx last week as well - took a few hours to get them to stop, but nothing since)<br><br>
Thanks for all your input!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Maybe some kind of BH's? I'm so not an expert in this area as I haven't experienced what you're talking about and this is babe #1 for me. Have you tried pelvic tilts and Child's Pose? Those are both pretty good for encouraging baby to move into another position.

I had something like that a lot with my first. In my case it was her hands. She almost always kept them by her head and when she moved them, it was often right on my cervix. Really an uncomfortable feeling. The closer we got to term, the more intense it became. It certainly didn't rush her exit though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I hope yours is nothing more serious than that. I would mention it to your mw though, just in case you have something else going on.

I have been experiening this for the last 4-5 weeks alos. It is just annoying. Soemtimes I will have cervical pressure that doesnt go away for 4 hours or more! I asked my obgyn about it, and described is as if the baby was scratvhing my cervix! She said it was probably the hands, and the baby is just growing. I would mention it to you md, just to make sure she it isnt unusual.

Oh yeah. I had cervical jabs with both of my previous two toward the end. Nothing terribly painful here yet, but I've had a few of those, "I need to pee RIGHT NOW" sensations.<br><br>
I had a weird thing last weekend where everything "down there" was just achy and painful. I was having a lot of trouble with my sciatic nerves down both legs, too. We were at the ILs helping out with a remodeling project they were doing, and the house was torn apart so there weren't many places to sit down. When I finally got home and was able to lay down a bit, it went away, so I don't know if the baby was putting pressure on something all day and just needed some encouragement to move or what <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I don't feel that kind of pressure/jabbing until the baby gets much bigger. My baby is still laying across my tummy, but she moves head down, I know it will get more painful. She does lay on a nerve from time to time that makes in almost impossible to walk and sends a shooting pain down the inside of my left leg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I have to stretch and poke her until she moves. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I hope you were able to get your little one to change positions and give you some relief.
