  • near the ends of my pregnancies i couldnt actually SIT normally... if the pressure becomes too intense or you feel contractions (trust me, you'll KNOW when you have one... even the small ones take your breath away and the worse ones make you curl up in a ball and feel like dying) coming at regular intervals, call your midwife or dr or whomever... or the hospital if you're having a hospital birth.

  • The baby probably dropped and getting into position to be born. I had it both times I was preggo.

  • Yes, the baby may be moving downward to get ready for birth.

  • Sounds normal!
    Doen't it kind of feel like you're going to sit on the baby's head?

  • im nowhere near the end of my 23weeks and i feel the same pressure when i stand and/or walk. I think it is the weight of everything pushing down. BTW this is my 4th baby and i felt this way with my 3rd as well.
