I swear he is going to fall out.

It's way too early to feel like this. He feels so low. He's always been low but today it's gotten worse. I mean, I can't even walk normally because of how low he is. I felt this way with Lucas, the day before he was born. Not at 30 weeks! I'm kinda freaking out a little but at the same time, I'm afraid to call the doctor. What the heck would I say? "Uh, I've birthed two babies and realize it requires hard work but I swear this one is about to fall out"? That sounds ridiculous.

So yeah, I'm extremely uncomfortable tonight. Every time he moves, pain shoots through my cervix because he's right on it. And my hips feel like they've been cracked in half. Ugh.

OMG, I feel so bad for you! I never had the head down pain with DD because she was breech. I've been having an aching cervix lately and I really don't like it. It makes it so hard to walk! I'm slowly meandering.

Have you been having contractions at all?

I have that low feeling lately and the skin tightness and yes as you all say dagger feet. today i had two really bad cramps and felt and it was her shoulder, so no contraction thankfully.

No contractions, thankfully. I've had a few bad ones in the past week but never more than one or two in a day, so nothing to really worry about. I've been thinking lately I won't make it to full term because I never had painful contractions this early before. And now he's way down in my pelvis. So I'm just praying to make it to 35 weeks. I'd be good with 35.

Madi was completely low for weeks before she was born. Everyone kept commenting on how low I was carrying her. I just joked that it would be ok if she did just fall out when it was time. She was born late at 40.3 weeks, but literally feel out 30 minutes after arriving at the hospital. All of the discomfort and pain towards the end of the pregnancy were worth having such a short labor and delivery!

I don't feel this one is super low actually I feel she is high but I am so uncomfortable all the time. I'm 32 weeks but been feeling like this for a while now. I don't remember being this uncomfy this early with my boys. She is in a different position than they both liked and I feel it must be due to that. I hope you have some better days and he keeps baking for a while longer.

My 3rd and 4th were really low like that early on (thankfully not as much with #5 and now #6). Anyway, it was definitely more uncomfortable, but they cooked just as long as their sisters did. Sorry you are in so much pain with it though. That's never any fun.

I'm much calmer today. I was freaking out last night. I just remember feeling exactly like that the day before Lucas was born and I was really scared. Still uncomfortable today but not as bad as last night. Granted, all I've done today is sit while the kids did school and now I'm headed back to bed. On the upside, sitting is much more comfortable with this sudden dropping because I'm not feeling parts in my rib cage anymore. My hips are now taking the beating instead!

I am right there with you! This baby is sooooo low! and has been since the start.

DS was all up in my ribs, but with her I fear I might see a hand come out waving at any moment. :eek:

It seems like a theme with all of us though. Really low babies

I am incredibly low. (and have told the dr I feel like he's goign to fall out) I am so low that they have started guessing when I won't be back at work.... The other teacher who is preg and due the same time as me with #3.... says she checks every morning to see if Im there becasue she doesnt expect to see me. and our very adament "you guys arent having the babies until school is out" principal has lined up a sub for me..... and hopes that Ill be at the retention meeting we have scheduled for May 23... (personally Im hoping to make it through field day on Friday...) I didnt think I'd be back this week becasue last Friday I was literally waddling (could barely walk) to the car when I went home. Baby is so low its uncomfortable to stand. but hurts like heck to sit!
