Anyone else feeling pressure on your pelvic bone? It is becoming difficult to walk. Feels like my pelvic is about to snap in half! Anyone else? If so, what's the explanation?

It certainly feels like it! It's been happening since I was about 30 weeks and my doctor said she felt her head down but I didn't believe her

Yes it does! Is there a chance that I may have dilated? I have a doctor's appt. next weeks and was wondering if it's possible.

Yeah i really hated it. Baby is dropping into place. It's basically like having a bowling ball weighing down on your pelvic bone...Once you get further along it actually gets worse . It began to feel like someone was pushing the bowling ball down on my pelvis ...I seriously called my doctor and told her straight up i think my pelvic bone is cracking down the middle. She giggled and told me to take a nice warm bath and try to relax and the worse is yet to come... She was right :) Good luck mama. It will be over soon.

lol. I called labor and delivery also.....The warm water actually does work for a little while. Hopefully the pressure will make her come a little early! :?

Have you had any contractions? It's possible but it doesn't necessarily mean anything. I had pre-term labor at 31 weeks that put me at 2.5cm dilated and 75% effaced for 8 weeks.

I wouldn't cout on it, when I was pregnant with my son he dropped at 29 weeks and I even had some pre-term labor and he still didn't come until 5 days before my due date lol.

Just braxton hicks contractions and light cramping at times but nothing major....

Well IMO it would be pointless to be checked for dilation because it doesn't really mean much unless you're having a bunch of contractions which could mean you are in pre-term labor, but it doesn't sound like that's the case.
