    Pain in the butt...literally

    Hi Ladies,

    I am pretty sure that my little one has dropped about as far as he/she can go without actually coming out. This morning when I walk I could scream with each step. The pressure is so intense that I am constantly losing urine. I did the test to be sure it is urine.

    When sitting at my desk I don't feel as much pressure as when I am standing, however I keep getting these terrible pains in my back end.

    Does this mean labour is immenent or can the baby still move?

    with my first, i had lots of pressure also. i wouldnt say it was painful, but i knew he was right there...and it being my first, i had no clue it wasnt supposed to feel that way! anywho, i was dilated to 3 cent and put on modified bedrest. i would certainly talk to your dr about it and ask him to check you if he hasnt yet.

    I do understand the pressure, and I normally get it around 1-3 weeks before I deliver. I agree with Lisa to talk to your OB and have him check you out. It would be good to know what your body is doing.
    Take care!

    Babies can drop and hang out like that for weeks. Ryan dropped last week and it constantly feels like I have to take a BM. But I can also breathe a lot better and I can also eat again without feeling sick.

    Your baby can still do lots of moving. Movement at about 35 weeks should slow down dramatically as they have so little room to move around in there.

    Just keep an eye on the kick counts and be aware of your contractions!!
