Pressure in your butt Justine's Mama Due November 28 (boy); 1 child; Boynton Beach, Florida 1939 posts

What's it mean? Anyone experience pressure specifically only like in there butt, I don't feel pressure in my vagina at all only in my butt, so weird. Just bored and wondering :D I love knowing about things going on with pregnancy. Google which I don't trust, says that your baby has dropped and engaged and that its head is right by the cervix, whatever that means.

For me personally it is normal. When mine drop I get it. It is weird because it always reminds me where I need to push for delivery. But it freaks me out because I always worry about straining if I am going to the bathroom.

Bahah thanks :D Don't mind me I am so bored right now. And I haven't had a doctors appointment in almost 5 weeks so I am like curious George over here. Last I was seen I was 32 weeks, when I see him next I will be 37 weeks & 2 days.

Makes me feel like if I tried to give a push she would come out my butt :shock: Its such a weird feeling and especially when you never felt it before and never experienced pregnancy.

LOL I know. With my first it freaked me out. My doctor kept saying it is the biggest poop you will ever take! LOL So when they drop I am always thinking of his words and remembering everything I did to get them out quick.

I told my friend how I feel this pressure in my butt and she said she never felt that except when she was in labor in the hospital giving birth. She said its what labor feels like.

It is! That's the thing everyone is different. Sucky because if you need advice not everyone has the same experiences as you. So then you think WTH this isn't normal. Doesn't help when most scare you and make you think it is completely not normal. LOL Oh well

Yeah does suck that everyone is different with pregnancy. Because you can be told things but it may not go the same way for you as them.

Yep.... The other day a girl lost her mucus plug and posted a pic (it looked just like one of my three, now four). Most people don't lose it like that and there was a few freaking her out. Saying it may be placenta, or her miscarrying. I was like wow great freak her the crap out and things. I guess if I was concerned I would just say hey you should go to L&D. Not freak her out, because stress won't help. Poor girl.

Aww yeah if someone gave me that advice I would freak out to. I had bad back pain for 8 hours straight the other day my friend was like your in early labor call your doctor. I was like ughh but its bearable I really don't want to go to the hospital over nothing because he just tells me to go to L&D. I told her if it got worse I would call but of course it stopped and I was fine. And I read online that if its not timeable its not contractions, which it was constant I couldn't time it at all.

with my first I had HORRIBLE back pain, I ended up having back labor with him. But with him I gained a TON of weight and waddled because I was in school and working. So who knows what it came from. But I went to the chiropractor (whom specialized in maternity adjustments) and it helped. Wish he could of adjusted me while in labor lol, maybe it wouldn't have been so bad.

Yeah everyone keeps telling me that I am going to have back labor since all the pain is in my back. I hear its the worst but its okay though I never could handle menstrual cramps in my belly, I prefer to deal with the pain in my back.

LOL it hurts, but my gosh labor is such a short time. it isn't that bad! Just think it is the sprint to the finish line where your tired, hurting and you mind/body wants to be done. But you push through and have the rewards after. After I had all my babies I felt so empowered. I had energy back, I felt so good. I did natural so the pain was instantly gone. I don't know how to explain.

You went natural every time? My plan is to go natural unless I really can't handle it but I guess we will see.
