EEeeeeeeeeeee! For the past several days, Rocket has been seriously smushing my bladder. Like, to the point that it's uncomfortable to walk and I feel like it's possible I could pee my pants at any time. GetoffgetoffgetoffGETOFF!!!! Is anyone else experiencing this, or is this my payback for not having to get up 10x a night to pee for the rest of the pregnancy?
I know he's "engaged" pretty well in the birth canal, which is what I think happens when they say that you've dropped. Although, my bump doesn't really look any lower. I think he's so big he takes up all of the space and there isn't anywhere for him to go. LOL
Oh no Elizabeth! That is no fun whatsoever!
Not so bad yet. There are a few times that I feel her move and it's like I have to pee right now, get out of my way. LOL
I just found out yesterday that she is indeed head down at this point but, not sure how low she really is, because i'm not feeling pressure down there just yet. So i'm really hoping she's low enough that she doesn't turn breech again.
The only reason I know that Rocket is "pretty well engaged" is that my dr told me the last time I was at his office - something about pushing on the head and seeing how much it bounces. More bouncy = less engaged.
I don't have constant issues like this. I still feel the HOLY CRAP I GOTTA GO NOW, which then disappears quite quickly. Still leaves me the urge to pee, but it's not an emergency. I know my little girl is head down - but I don't think she's in the birth canal - only because I still feel serious movement up high. Granted, that might not mean anything. I thought today she might have dropped - I felt like I had to pee super bad and felt some pressure down there, but it abated.
I feel it more if she moves. I would've sworn that she had "dropped" and even a friend of mine said oh you dropped because your boobs are not hanging out on your belly anymore but at the docs yesterday he said she is still really high lol. I think it prob has more to do with the increase in size of the fetus during this time that our feelings on the bladder are changed.
