Is this just a "phase"?

My little woman has been residing reeeeeaaaalllyy low in my abdomen, uterus, whichever is right...
lol- (first timer here, using technical terms is still foriegn to me)
and It's very inconveniant and painful! When she's there I cant stand up or move w/o experiencing awful pains that always result in tears and usually end in me plopping to the floor however far I made it to my original destination, till I can poke her enough and make her move :/
Mind you she has never done this before, has never even been one to venture that low, till recently- like a week max this has been happening...

any thoughts?
Will she eventually quit doing tis and give me a break?

  • i would say if you are more than 35 weeks along you are probably experience what they call lightening. which is the baby lowering herself near the birth canal getting ready for the big arrival you will probably begin braxton hicks contractions soon. and sometimes they can be a bitch. stay off of your feet as much as you can keep your feet propped up because soon you will be on your feet 24 7.

  • yeah my son always pushed his head on my bladder and made sharp pains go through it! i agree its probably lightening. but always call your doctor and let them know what is going on. you can never be too careful

  • OH SORRY! I really thought I put that in there...
    I'm about 25 weeks now...

    and I think I have experienced a few braxton hicks already...
