Swelling & Tenderness

I woke up this morning and have been feeling very tender and swollen down below. Is this normal near the end of pregnancy?

it happens to me each time. It's the baby's head putting more pressure on your cervix to help you dialate. I usually feel like the baby is going to fall out near the very end. HA if only it was that easy LOL.

Never really had swelling but tenderness definitely. Makes walking a challenge at times!
