I am 33 weeks pregnant and for about the past week I have seemed to be getting a lot of pain in my butt. Not in my back. I did have sciatic nerve pain in the beginning of my pregnancy so I know it's not that. Not to sound gross or dumb but the pain is more by my butt crack or hole. It hurts from the inside. It feels like pressure. What is it?

Butt pain or pressure

  • I had that...My doctor said the baby is probably more towards your spine than sitting out in causes so much pressure on your bowel system that it hurts. I hurt most when I was sitting down. It's totally normal.

  • It is probably your pelvic bones shifting to make way for child birth. I had that with both my pregnancies.

  • I couldn't sit when I was pregnant toward the end! I would totally get a sharp pain right in my "butthole" lol. I am pretty sure it had something to do with the way she was positioned...but I lived through it and it went away right after delivery. Hang in there!
