Baby too low??

I am about 20 weeks preg. with my second child. My fetus feels like it is REALLY low in my pelvis. If I sit down for too long (30 min) I hurt when I stand up- it feels like I am squishing my baby! I do not remember feeling like this with my first- is this common? Anyone else have this situation?

  • Both of my babies have been super low. When I was pregnant with DD, I would literally walk around holding the bottom of my belly cause I felt like she was just going to fall right out! Lol. This baby is the same way. She is so low sometimes it feels like she's going to kick and her foot is just going to pop out.

  • I have been carrying low as well. About 4 weeks ago I was in pain/discomfort because Baby Gabriel was right there! My Dr saw me and told me to get a prenatal belly support and that helped out, it supports you and eliminates you having to hold your belly for comfort. Ask your Dr for an rx or you can just stop by JC Penny and pick one up.
