Burrowing Baby???

Hey everyone. I don't post much, but have been wondering if any of you are experiencing something I have been the past couple of days.

I am almost 31 weeks and the baby HAS to be head down. I feel her "burrowing" down there, and it's quite uncomfortable! I feel like if she did it with enough force she could get out if she wanted! Smile Of course I prefer her to wait at least 6 more weeks.

Anyone else experiencing this? I don't think I "dropped" until the last minute with my other two, so this is new territory for me!
TIA

I've had the same sort of thing happening, it went on for about 3 days and now my BH contractions are more frequent and stronger (although not painful) with the occasional sharp pain.

I'm guessing she's moved into head down position and wondering if maybe she is just lower than DD1 was at this stage? IDK what else would cause so much discomfort.

Oh and I am finding it difficult to walk - are you having that as well?

Yes! I have issues with walking, my vagina-area just aches. And my lower back is KILLING me! This sucks considering I am a nurse and can not just sit down whenever I feel like it. lol I feel better knowing I am not alone and that someone knows what I am going thru! I have also noticed more discharge, thin, watery. I have experienced ruptured membranes so I don't feel like that is it, just another change I noticed.

Nichole I've noticed the same discharge, it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one!

Everything this pregnancy has started early so I'm hoping she comes early (but not too early) as well. Even my BFP which I thought was 14/15DPO was 8/9DPO based on my early u/s. They wanted to confirm EDD because I was temping and O'd on CD 60+ (by my LMP I should have been due in January but I knew that wasn't accurate) u/s measured 6w1d, EDD of March 3rd, despite FF showing my O date and giving me an EDD of Feb 26th, which is about what my 2nd u/s gave me as an EDD - only off by 1 day.

Give me another 8 weeks or so and she is more than welcome to arrive!

I think we are still head up because I'm feeling fluttering pretty low still and my midwife told me that means hands or feet. Im having a LOT of pain lately though. I talked to my midwife about it and she said its probably just BH and pressure which is good but sucks because there is nothing I can do to help it. I notice its worse if I sit in a hard chair for a long time which I do at school and also when I'm using our computer at home. Next week is my finals so im hoping I can just relax and take it easy after that and see if that helps with the pain.

I know my due date is accurate within a couple of days (depending on when actual implantation occured) because we know the exact DAY, HOUR, MINUTE we conceived. Smile We were not planning this at all, so our OOOPs was quite obvious.

So hopefully at 37 weeks the games can begin. If she's ready she can come in 6 weeks!
