Okay ladies, I'm a first time mom, 37 weeks pregnant and for the last day and a half I've had constant pressure in my bottom like I need to have a bowel movement, yet nothing comes out? It doesn't go away no matter what I seem to do. I'm not having contractions, or at least I don't think I am? I'll have some mild pain in my lower back but that's coming and going and is not anything regular. Just wondering if this pressure means I could be going into labor soon? It hasn't seemed to stop or back off any. I also notice some pain in my sides, but again nothing regular. Is this pressure a sign? At my checkup yesterday my doctor said my cervix was starting to thin and dilate and that the baby was really low. Did any of you experience this pressure and is it the early stages!? Thanks!
