I feel like my water is going to break! Danielle Paul Due November 26 (girl); Medford, Oregon 31 posts

I am only 24 weeks, but this is my second pregnancy so I'm familiar with how it feels to be 39 weeks and how it feels to have your water break. My first was a girl and now I am having a boy...does that have anything to do with how low he is compared to my daughter? It feels like he is maybe moving, but I feel it so low it almost feels like my vagina! No contractions...but a lot of pressure. It's making me nervous about my water breaking :-/

Boys are usually lower than girls

I have a 1 year old and I'm 23w 6d with my second, both are girls. I know exactly what you are talking about, they have both been really low and I literally feel like they try to kick out of my vagina lol. some of the kicks I feel ridiculously low but my first daughter stayed put until 41 1/2 weeks. Honestly I wouldn't worry too much unless you are having pain or contractions

i dont think the gender has anything to do with how high or low you carry your child. My first was a boy and i carried him super high my whole pregnancy and this time im having a girl and ive been carrying her super low since ive had a belly. Hope everything is okay and stays okay!

This is my 3rd child and 2nd boy, when he moves or kicks I feel like he is kicking awfully low like that, and its gotten to the point that when he moves it hurts lol.

I've felt this a few times this pregnancy. Ever since his head went down it has felt as though he was in my vag a few times lol. I had a lot of pressure on my pelvis today. Id say its normal.

Right there with you. #1 was a girl and I carried her high.. #2 is a boy and he's a lot lower. It feels as if he's just gonna beat his way out. I've had a ton of pressure since 20 wks.. got worse between 25-27 wks and my dr said its because his head is down now. If I'm on my feet too long.. it feels like hes just gonna fall out. :/

yes i am 32 weeks and 4 days. I have had a hard pressure in my lower belly and it feels like a foot pushing on my vagina since 27 weeks. it seems with boys all the pressure is low.
