  • I am 37 weeks too.. and my "wonderland" hurts like crazy. Kind of a sharp pelvic pain, especially when I first stand up... Unfortunately for us - its part of being pregnant. Did they mention if your baby is head down? The pressure increase is likely from that. Try taking a warm bath - letting your body float in the water will help give you some relief. You can take a little Tylenol, but I haven't found it to be very useful. Sorry Momma -- almost there!

  • I had that when I was pregnant with my son. It is the baby putting pressure on that area! It is normal and it means you are getting close! I had that for about a month before I had my baby! GL and congrats! You are getting close!
