  • probably from all the pressure. i am only 22 weeks and i have horrible pressure down there. i am pregnant with twins so its to be expected early:) but id sa its just from pressure.

  • could be an internal hemorrhoid.

  • I was thinking hemorrhoid or constipation

  • I have it, too, at 36 weeks. I thought gas pains or dilation. Comes and goes.

  • I never felt pains or spasms, but definitely had a fair bit of pressure there in the last few weeks. I did some looking into on the internet and from what I could find it is pretty normal, it's just the baby moving lower and the body preparing, and mention it to your doctor if you are worried. Hope all is well : )

  • its just from the pressure, but watch out this is usually when the hemorroids start coming. At least for me :(
