Is anyone else feeling extreme pressure & discomfort in their buttock and pelvic area? Is this a sign that delivery is approaching, dilation or just that the baby has dropped? Other than the crazy back pain I already have, I can't really walk w/o feeling like the baby is going to drop out or even left up a leg to put my pants on. (obviously I know that is NOT a possible for the baby to drop out) Therefore, did any of you experience this and find out you were dilating? Or are you experiencing this?
yes i have this. feels like im carrrying a bowling ball at the entrance ! ive had it for a few weeks tho hun, soo dont think its a siign of anything. also at my last MW (tuesday) she said bubs was no longer engaged
all ya muscles in that area are relaxing and all getting ready for the big push, so probs why the increase of pressure is there, along with the pressure of baby pushing down, im getting this a lot, spesh if i walk or bend over for a period of time, hope this helps x x
I spoke to my midwife this mornign about this and apparantly it is the pelvis rubbing together!! the cartlidge gets all squishy due to hormones and allows the bones in your pelvis to rub!! not a nice feeling!
