I've seen this mentioned a couple of times but I have no idea what it means. I bring it up because, all of a sudden, I don't have nearly as much pelvic pressure as I did yesterday. Literally over night it seems like there's almost none actually. Is this what lightening is? Can someone shed some light on this for me?

I thought lightening actually resulted in more pelvic pressure, as it's the baby moving down and engaging in the pelvis. With lightening I think you are supposed to feel less heartburn and difficulty breathing, and MORE pelvic pressure.

Hmmm then I guess that's not what I'm experiencing... Should I be worried or nervous do you think?

I find that some days I have more pressure than others. I just assume that the littlest adjustment in baby's position can make a huge difference in how I feel. I guess if it were me I would bring it up at my next appointment but wouldn't worry about it. If you're still feeling regular movement I think that's a good sign.

Don't worry My LO does the same thing to me. Last night it hurt to walk and I had to pee every 10 minutes. Today I've only gone twice since getting up and the pain has subsided.

The baby can (and will) move its head/body in and out of your pelvis all the way until labor.

I haven't had a single day where I felt less pressure at any point but who knows. I will just see how I feel the next few days as I have an appointment on Tuesday.

Teresa described lightening exactly....it mainly does mean you can breathe better and less heartburn....definitely more pelvic pressure tho.
