anyone else felt this feeling?

I am 33 1/2 weeks with 2nd child and i keep getting this almost stretching/burning kind of painful but more uncomfortable feeling in my cervix, i never felt this with my first so im curious to know if anyone else has felt that. If so what is it? am i starting to dilate? so lost.......?

  • i don't know exactly what you're feeling but if i had to guess i'd say the baby dropped and you're just feeling pelvic pressure. the baby's head puts a lot of weight and pressure on your cervix and it can be uncomfortable or even painful. i wouldn't say thats dilation necessarily, you can't really feel that. with my son i had horrible pelvic pressure until the moment he was born, it felt like he was ready to fall out!
