Pressure!!!

Anyone else having tons of pressure and pain in there lower regions? I dont remember this with my son at all. at 37 weeks with him i walked the zoo the day before he was born. I can barely walk down my steps without being in pain!!! Sorry to complain, i think i may have my dr check me next week for any cervix change!

I am definately having more pressure down there then I had with either of my previous kids. Luckily, it is not always there but when it is it is really uncomfortable. I could not go for long walks, it would be much to uncomfortable.

Lol I agree with all PPs!!! I think it's because our babies are getting lower. Esp since this is baby #3 for you (and I believe everyone else who commented, right?). I know that it feels like he is always dancing on my cervix and squeezing my bladder as much as he can. I've been having to pee like every 30 minutes to an hour lol because it hurts if I don't!

Unfortunately I believe it's normal. I am so ready to not be pregnant anymore! Which makes me feel bad because I enjoyed being pregnant with my other two but I've been so miserable with this one.

We have a lot of 3 timers on this board.

Yep, pressure pressure pressure over here. Not even pain cause my chiro has been awesome making that go away, but literally pressure of LO sitting so low. My other 2 sat really really high so this is totally different for me but I'd take low pressure over not being able to breath right now. I've gotta waddle too and forget about having a full bladder.

Yes, same here! I could've written your post word-for-word. This LO is still high, though, and breach.

This is baby #2 for me. I can't believe how different this pregnancy is from the previous one. With my other one, no problems and I even thought (not seriously) I would enjoy being a surrogate. Now, I can't count up all the parts that are hurting and uncomfortable. Weird.

Same here, and after my appt today, the doc could feel the baby's head was getting lower, but my cervix couldn't be any more tight. Beee

Ditto here too. My #1 was high and breach, but this one is head down. I can't tell if the pinching is in my cervix, or in my bladder.

That is what seems weird to me....this baby is breech and it seems like there would be less pressure that way. My other 2 were both head down, and I don't remember having near this much with either of them.

This past week, the pressure has been insane.

I'm also noticing my maternity shirts have a lot more belly room too...

I just bought a few new shirts in bigger sizes from Old Navy and refuse to dry afraid they may get shorter...

Lol Kelly I hear ya! I very rarely dry any of my tops. Im on the tall side anyway, so I've always had a problem with things shrinking in the arms when I dry them. I got some upper comfy maternity clothes from Old Navy a few weeks ago!

They have a sale right now that if you pay full price for a shirt you get one free.. So I picked up 2 short sleeve shirts since it is getting a little 2 hot for my long sleeve shirts. I also just broke down and purchased a pair of jeans that have the full panel up until 2 weeks ago I was only wearing the first trimester jeans from old navy which are super comfy.

I've just taken to wearing DH's work out shorts lol. I do wear a few pairs of pants, but they're getting tight in the waist. I also wear DH's shirts half the time because those will cover me.

I have both pairs of those jeans, Kelly, and honestly I really prefer the short paneled ones! I wear them almost every day.

So back to the pressure topic, DH and I just got back from a walk and towards the end I started getting this intense pressure in my butt like someone was kicking their foot up my butt! Lol. Funny, but not too comfortable.
