  • 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.

  • 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, etc....call 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 :(
