  • Is it constant or does it come and go?

  • well not every pregnancy is the same.....so it could be the baby engaging in the pelvis. Mine also did the same around 27-30 weeks. So needless to say I had a lot of pressure in my pelvic region until baby was born at 39 weeks.

  • Yeah, I would go to labor /delivery, just to make sure you aren't in labor. The nurses there have seen everything, so don't be worried about a false alarm. My SIL is a L&D nurse and her advice is to ALWAYS go in if there is any question to whether you are in labor or not.
