So this feels sorta weird

7 months right now, and the baby seems like she wants to punch her way out through my crotch. It feels like she is pushing her way out at times. Idk how to explain it better. I can also feel it in my rectum. at times it stops me in my tracks.

  • I'm 36.5 weeks and I feel that a LOT! I swear he's trying to escape. There are moments where I'm walking and it feels like he's going to fall out! LOL

  • I'm not completely sure, since I'm only 5 months and it's my first. I think I felt baby for the first time on May 6, but I'm thinking that maybe it's just the way she is positioned. also, if you are a small girl to begin with, you may feel more going on inside! I expect to, for I only weighed 109 when this all started and my tummy sure has grown. Even now, sometimes i feel slight pains in my rectal area, but it just gives me gas and then i'm fine. I think as long as you don't have severe pains, you will be ok!! Baby is stretching out and may opt to lay in odd positions that may not be comfortable for you! Good Luck! It seems in pregnancy as long as there are no severe pains or bleeding everything is just fine!! Ask your doc if you become really uncomfortable. Honestly, I think the breathing techniques of yoga will help me when i get just helps ground me and baby seems to calm down. (sometimes my heart speeds up)

  • i felt that a lot at the end of my last pregnancy! it helped me to sit so the pressure pushed the baby back up a little. i guess they just cant wait to come out! lol!

  • I go throught that same thing... my doctor told me that the baby is lodging her head into the birthing position and the pelvic bone is slowly opening to give birth. sounds freaky!
