  • How far along are you? If it is late in the pregnancy it is normal, it is how they prepare for birth. It might be painful and uncomfortable for you but he is getting ready for his departure.

  • If the dr is ok with it then you should be ok

  • I'm almost 36 weeks and that's where my daughter is. I've carried her really low the whole time. No little feet in my ribs yet :)

  • That's funny you asked this, I was going to ask the same thing!! I'm almost 37 weeks and in entirely too much pain, i can barely walk! My doctor isn't aware of this as it is just within the last week or so... I think since he went head down, I started with this horrible feeling. And I defintely wasn't in this much pain the first time... But I know what your going through!!

  • There is no danger at all... its totally fine and your baby probably isnt too low at all. Did the doc give you a station that the baby was at? Your pelvic cartiledge can actually separate if the baby is too low for too long and although it hurts like hell, it isnt dangerous
