I am 34 weeks and 2 days today but the baby has been head down for about a month or so and I've been having the absolute WORSE pelvic pressure ever for the last 2 days I mean I literally wanna get up and just start crying it hurts so bad. And the back pain is constant today along with the pelvic pressure. Could this mean that i'm possibly about to go into labor? and the baby has been moving SOOOO MUCH today it's unreal. What does all this mean? labor or just being pregnant?

  • Could be labor. Please call your midwife/doctor and tell them. To me it sounds like labor. But im not a doctor, nor a midwife.

  • It never ever ever hurts to get checked out although as you get into the final stage of pregnancy it is common to feel totally uncomfortable! Hope you are ok!

  • Sounds like the baby has dropped down lower in the pelvis. It usually happens in the last few weeks of pregnancy. He could have also gotten turned around where his face is facing your front. That will cause pain. One of mine did that. It could also be worse if you are about to go into labor.
