Is this 'nothing' or 'something' ?

Im not really having contractions..i mean im having like...1 every hour so no big deal..

But.... everytime i sit forward to grab something, i get soooooooooo much pressure on my vag and i feel like im gonna pop SOMETHING out lol.

im 38 weeks pregnant (i JUST got back from L&D for a nonstress test and everything is fine) but i wasnt having this problem when i was just there..

Is it just the babys head pushing on my cervix when i sit forward?

im 2cm dilated and about 80% effaced

  • i dont know but i've felt that for the past week and a half and im 34 weeks. then sometimes when he hits it feels like his arm could pop right out if it wanted to. so im assuming since everyone else that has answered has felt it too its normal. i just don't remember my daughter being that low, ever

  • I always felt like there was a bowling ball about to explode out of my vagina every time I sat down for the last couple weeks. It sounds pretty normal to me. Try to avoid leaning forward while you are sitting. Putting on shoes and socks turned into a whole yoga workout at that point.

  • While you were in for your NST did you get a vaginal exam? If yes did they strip your membranes? If you don't know then you should call and ask them. I mean the pressure itself is very normal, the only oddity I see is the fact that it started after an appointment.
