    :hugs:hey ladies!
    so i am sitting here and i tell ya what! OWW! I am gathering what i am feeling is him moving slowley down into my pubic region.. but it is taking my breath away... Do these feelings of the baby moving down and the pressure of him.. are they similar to contrations? i am 3/5ths engaged and 38 weeks.. so i gather too he may come at any time.. i can feel and see him moving but just wanted to know if what i am feeling is anywhere near what a contration feels like?
    cheers lovely ladies! :hugs:

    I'm exactly the same as you, also 38+1. Get lots of tight pressure from her, but not sure what's her moving and whats not.

    Contractions are like period pains (at the start anyway) that goes the whole way around instead of just low in the front. They'll be accompanied by your uterus going solid (like a BH but much stronger, and the WHOLE of your stomach, not just parts like they are with BH.)
