Anyone else having pain/pressure down low? All I can relate the feeling to is the first couple days of your period when it feels like there weights on your ovaries and they're going to fall out. Not really funny but seriously, that's all I can come up with! I woke up today feeling a lot of pressure and low back pain. It feels better when I rest and sit, though. I'm not feeling any tightness in my abdomen so I don't think it's preterm labor. I do think that baby girl finally went head down though so maybe that's the reason for the pressure? I just don't know what is normal and what isn't - my next OB appt. is next Monday. What do you girls think? I can't seem to remember anything like this with DD but then again, this pregnancy has been nothing like my pregnancy with DD.
I think you should call and be seen. Labor and preterm labor can often start as pressure or abdmoninal pain and as cramping like you are about to or are on your period. With Oliver I never felt a lot of contractions, all I had was bad lower pelvic pain. I thought it was SPD(?) - where the pubic bones start to seperate... but it wasn't.
I mean, it could mean nothing at all, but it could be a warning sign too. It could also be a sign of a UTI. Better to get checked out then to deliver super early!
I would definitely mention it to your OB but wouldn't get too freaked out by it. I get it as well and it comes and goes. This baby is the lowest one that I have carried and I kind of think it is just him sitting funny
yep and I get out of breath with it and I grunt and moan cus I try to walk or sit or stand up and ugh.. it hurts alot..but thena gain this is normal for me cus my dr says my body is tiny. so idk. Mention it, Im mentioning tomorrow when I go.

Thanks ladies! Yesterday was my second occurance with it (about a month apart). I think it's worth mentioning to my Dr. but since it went away with rest last night, I'm not going to rush there. I read some stuff about preterm labor online and one of the sites suggested laying on your left side for an hour and drinking at least two glasses of water. If it pain/pressure was still there after, call your OB. I tried that last night and it was considerably better. My job requires me to be on my feet almost all day, I think that's contributing to the pressure sensation.
"It feels like lots of pressure in my butt bones extending to the front"
I have this problem consistently. No cramping or anything else. I'd liken it to the feeling if you were to get hit in between the legs with a ball bat. when I lay down in bed and try to lift my legs, the pain is the worst.
I feel like it's probably a combo of pressure on the pubic bones from sitting/standing and the body changing.
