  • That happens to me sometimes, I'm just not used to the baby being so low with the pelvis so stretched, and I was sitting for a long time. It took a little bit to acclimate before I could stand up straight. It was similar to what happens after you overstuff yourslef at thanksgiving and find that standing up straight takes a little effort. LOL.

  • Ouch! I don't know if that is the same thing, but sometimes I get REALLY bad pain from my uterus stretching. Their have been a few times recently (pregnant with #4) that I couldn't move. Did it pass? Otherwise I have no idea!!

  • is it just when your trying to stand up? try ringing hospital for advice or if your not alone ask whoever is their with you to run you a nice bath and have a nice soak see how you feel maybe its just the baby getting into possition , good luck xx

  • I'm 37 weeks and 2 days. Everytime I stand up I literally feel like my vagina is going to flip inside out. I thinks its just pressure. There making there way out lol!!!!!!

  • I would guess it is just stretching then. I don't know why it seems to be worse with each pregnancy. You would think I's be all stretched out! Lol! Just yesterday my 2 year old had his baby sister (11 months) by the arms, trying to pick her up. I got up, part way, and couldn't stand up or move. I slowly strtched and tried to rescue my daughter as quickly as possible! Lol! It was crazy. Glad you are not still in pain, and congratulations on #3!!
