OK so this may be TMI but im 37 weeks today and since last night ive had major pressure in my lower back/butt area. Its soo bad that its really uncomfortable to sit down for more than 5 min. Also I feel like my vagina is very swollen. I dont remember experiencing this with any of my other preg. Anyone else have these issues????? If so did they happen anywhere near when you went into labor?????

well the pressure in your back most likely is from the baby. I'm not sure about swollen vagina though.

I'm almost 36 weeks and I get pressure like you are talking about. I only get the swelling tho if we havent done the deed lately. After we do the swelling and soreness goes away

I was told both are very normal after baby drops from all the pressure. I'm experiencing both!
