So I am just about 33 weeks and all this week I have had this bad vaginal pressure/pain every time I stand up and start walking. I feel like he is trying to push his way out! It hurts pretty bad and I have to stop in my tracks sometimes, but goes away after about 10 minutes. I haven't had any contractions or Braxton Hicks lately and when I got checked two weeks ago my cervix was still completely closed. Is this a normal feeling? DD was breech and I never experienced this with her.
I have been feeling this since about 16 weeks. I told my midwive it feels as if this baby is going to fall out.
She said I am just carring really low and since its not my first baby all the ligaments and muscles are streached out.
I remember this with DD but maybe the last 3-4 weeks.
When I stand up and start walking I hobble a little and sound like a old lady until I get a few steps in. But some days the pain wont let up like if I did a lot of walking or standing.
I had it with both my kids. I just made sure that I could sit down if it got bad. I've never had preterm labor issues (I was 1cm with both my kids when labor started!), so for me it wasn't anything bad.

I totally feel your pain (literally!) I remember it happening much earlier with Max, but over the last two weeks walking, getting dressed, rolling over in bed, etc. has gotten almost unbearably painful. I hurt before but not like this. I just keep reminding myself how it's only for 19 more days. Hang in there!!
I've been getting it for weeks, and it's really started to hurt at times the last couple weeks. I remember having it with DS very late in pregnancy. It does worry me some and I start to feel like maybe something is wrong, but they keep telling me my cervix looks good. In addition to RLP it can also be this Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction in Pregnancy.
