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.
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.
