Pressure down there? Andrew & Alex's Mom 2 kids; North Carolina 137 posts

I've started having pressure right below my panty line (in the front)and stops between my thighs...kinda like it pressure on my pubic bone (if we have one of those). It's starting to be really unconfortable. I'm almost 31 weeks and someone told me last night that I looked like the baby had dropped. I don't know, I didn't experience any of this with my first pregnancy.

Anyone else experience this kind of pressure? If so, what does it mean, that the baby dropped or something?

Sounds like you've started to drop, at 32 weeks i felt the same way, then she dropped further! my poor bladder... lol. Now the pressure is mostly vaginal (i'm 35 1/2 weeks)

Since this pain has started I've been to the bathroom atleast 6 times in 3 hours. And I have been thinking that I really haven't had that much to drink but if baby is laying on my bladder more then that would explain it. It makes my legs feel achy too and my hips are killing me.

Does this mean the baby is likely to come before the due date? Cause I wouldn't be made at all if he came a week or so early, they say my due date is more like the 8th anyways, dr. just wouldn't change it b/c it was so close.
