Holy Pressure!

Ever since I woke up today, I've been having a LOT of pressure. Mostly just downward, but also in my bum :eek:

Along with that, I've had terrible nausea the past few mornings, and a few painful contractions here and there amidst my pretty regular BH so I'm wondering what little guy is trying to do to me! I don't know if he can drop any lower than he already is without falling out!!

Anyone else having a lot of pressure yet? My doctors office keeps telling me it's just a 3rd pregnancy, but as I'm getting close to 35 weeks, I am wondering what's up down there and if he's trying to find a way out yet. I want him to stay in there till he is good and ready to come out, but I must say that when he does, I'm going to be so relieved!!

I'm right there with ya. I swear wee dude has decided that he wants to help with the move. It def. happens earlier with each kid, from my experience. Your body just knows what to do

Now that Zoe has finally flipped head down again (she just did that 2 nights ago from transverse) I've been feeling lots of very low internal stretching and pressure. I find it encouraging that things are going in the right direction! Sadly these early/pre contractions can go on for awhile! Supposedly they help move the baby around into better positions and gets your body where it'll have a faster, smoother birth in the end. Hope you can stay positive and survive the final weeks. ((hugs))

I am definitely feeling pressure now that Cricket is starting to spend more time head down. Ugh. I know its good for him to be head down but it is so darn uncomfortable!
