I am 23 weeks pregnant with my 4th. Although I should be knowledgeable in this by now, I am dumbfounded. My daughter is very low. I feel a ton a pressure in the areas that should not be feeling it until at least 30 weeks. The braxton hichs are crazy too. I am crampy and worried, and ideas?

  • Call your Dr asap. I had a lot of vaginal and anal pressure and because I am having twins I had to go to the emergency room and be checked for preterm labor. Thankfully I was not but I was doing too much. I was told to elevate my feet, take it easy, and drink tons of water. It helped but you should check with your Dr. Best of luck!

  • Drink lots of water. That can help with the Braxton Hicks. But i always started with my Braxton Hicks at about 4 months, and they were painful, and I never had a baby earlier than 39 weeks. So it could be nothing. But it's still something you should bring up with your doctor.
