Re: maybe TMI?

With #1 I didn't feel that way until the day I delivered her but this time around I started feeling it this past Thursday(just reached 34 week mark this past Friday). I also started having intense conntractions that were lasting about 40 seconds and anywhere from 5 to 6 1/2 minutes apart for most of the day on Thursday. I laid down when I got home from work on Thursday and everything started to ease up after a few hours and now I'm staying off my feet as much as possible and laying down whenever I'm home. The doctor is on the verge of putting me on bed rest. I've only spoken with her on the phone so far and my next checkup is scheduled for this Tuesday along with an u/s to check fluids and position so we'll see what she says then.

If you're concerned, I would call your doctor and mention it just to be safe. I hope all is well and that your little one remains patient :-)

I'm definitely going to monitor things. I think it's too early for me!

Don't get too worried though Mama, stress has a way of exaggerating our symptoms. Follow your instincts about how your body feels and you will be fine. I'm with you though, it's too early. My DS2 acts like he wants to come too at 33wks, and I keep telling him that he's not ready yet. As much as I want to meet him, he needs to stay put until at least 37wks!

Same here for probably the last month. Honestly it feels like someone could fall out at any moment. Super annoying, but my dr isn't concerned about it. It's making me a bit nervous though! Too soon!

Re: maybe TMI?

yes, I've had it a couple of times. I am just so sore down there in general! After sitting for awhile it's worse when I get up (I could hardly walk the other night), but walking a lot doesn't help either. Ah the joys of pregnancy!

Re: maybe TMI?

I just had it yesterday -- it made me feel like I needed to pass gas, but it was just the pressure of that baby, lol. Sometimes it is more on my rectum, other times more on my vagina. Either way it has a way of feeling like a bowling ball between my legs.
