    Think this could be normal. I get this on and off since about 36 weeks. Sometimes baby is perhaps lower than others. Midwife did tell me that it does not mean they are likely to be early! As you can see mine isn't ;)
    Also you will get stretching and all sorts going on and that all adds to the feeling of pressure down below.

    Your baby has probably engaged - have you noticed your bump has 'dropped'? - looks lower than it used to?

    I don't know if it lasts until the end but I think probably. I've had the same thing for about a week (I'm 37 weeks), it's quite painful sometimes and doing pelvic floor exercises is near impossible!

    I feel like this too! It is so painful when I walk atm. I think lo might be engaging then the pain disappears for a few hours and then comes back :( fed up now just hope I can walk next week cos I finish for maternity leave tomorrow!
