is it normal to always feel like you have to poop?

I'm now 32 weeks along and the baby just dropped slightly as of last week. I feel like i have to go to the bathroom almost constantly and it's annoying bc i'm constipated lately. Is this normal bc of the pressure? She obviously is getting big in there but I just want to be sure...

  • Well it's normal to feel some sort of pressure, however I think you should ask your doctor, since usually the nurse asks you to let he know when you feel like you want to poop, since that is a clear sign that you are about to deliver... it might be happening due to the constipation and size of the baby, but I think that better safe than sorry :)

  • it's more like just a bit of pressure and it goes away if she moves around....i'm praying it's just the position of the baby! i really want her to come in September when she's due!!!!
