Does it mean the baby won't fit if when I have a contraction the pressure is on my hip bones?

or could it cause problems? I know i'm 1 1/2 cm dialated and shes head down and dropped.

  • Your body's getting ready. Your hip bones have to adjust/move to get the baby delivered.

  • There is no such thing as the baby not fitting. There is no such thing as a "too big baby." I wish doctors would stop telling women this.

  • anon 3:19 - my first baby was "too big" They had to break his shoulder bone to get him out because he didn't fit - it's called shoulder dystocia and it's not all that uncommon. It IS possible.

    OP - no, in most cases your hip bones will make room to accomodate the baby you're going to have. Braxton Hicks are just preparing you.
