Alright. Anyone else feel like they could just reach in about an inch and pull out the baby? This is the weirdest thing, I didn't feel this with my other pregnancies. Maybe because I'm a little experienced things have sagged down? I dunno!<br>
At times it's very annoying and it's painful. It's not bladder kicks, it's like an entire hand in my hoo hoo.<br>
Sorry if tmi, but I have to know if anyone else has btdt.<br>
Take care!<br>

i totally understand, i tried to explain it to my midwife, who assumed bladder kicks, but thats not what it is....its as you say, like she is coming out, i have actually resorted to crossing my legs tight it was so intense. I tried telling the midwife it was like having sex from the top down heheh, she laughed, but i dont think she understood...<br>
but i have heard other women say its more normal in second pregnancies

No, but that does not sound like fun!<br><br>
I have the opposite problem, I am carrying this baby so high I keep getting short of breath. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I carried DS the same way. Although she is feet down at this point - has been the whole time, actually - so those little kicks are all aimed right at my cervix! I don't feel any pressure, though, just little karate kicks.

Yep, same problem! My midwife said it was fairly common in subsequent pregnancies. I am dreading when he actually DROPS <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">:, it'll be like having a baby hanging out of me!

Oy vey. Didn't even think about when the baby drops. However, I can't even recall when that occurred so with me maybe it's somewhat discrete. Yeah right!<br>
But it could be a good thing. Down so low maybe that will make for a quick labor?<br>
I'm glad I'm not alone though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Well, normally after baby #1 I don't think they actually drop until labor, right? But I carried super low both times. With #1 I was 3cm and 50%-70% effaced for about 3 weeks. Couldn't sit with my legs together b/c there was a baby there. However, I had about 2" under my ribs that had no baby there... that was nice. :LOL

Baby is head up with her head in my ribs, and ooooooohhhh the pain. I guess it can be pretty uncomfy no matter how they're turned but I can't help wishing she'd flip over....

Glad to know that so mant mamas are sharing the same problem. I explained to my doc that everytime I pee I just know the baby is gonna fall out because he's so low. He said it was fairly normal with babies #2, 3 and so on. He also said in my case the felling was probably more intense because these pregnancies are so close together. My muscles haven't had time to fully recover from my son.

I carried my daughter low. My tailbone hasn't recovered yet, and she's 8 months old now. Ay!!<br><br>
When she was born, she had a groove all the way around her head. Her little ears were squished flat on the top! She looked like a leprechaun!!<br><br>
The pubic bone pain was just intense.

WOW, now this is funny to me only because I was coming onto the board to ask this exact same question!!! I saw the title of this and just said- YES, I am not alone. I have noticed the past few days I have been in town (extra walking around, lots of standing etc...) that I have felt literally like the baby is coming OUT too. It worries me! This is #4 for me, and I don't recall it being like this ever before. I hardly ever feel kicks up high, it is just like this big huge bowling ball on my privates- or yes, the having sex from the wrong way explains it too! I also have no idea how this baby is going to drop, if it does, I swear, it has to drop out!

Almost Fey - my baby is in the same place as yours. I can feel the head right under my stomach and its butt is along my right side. My left side is totally empty of baby parts!
