  • Usually around 36 weeks the baby drops. This sounds like what you're experiencing. It's very common to feel a lot of increased pelvic pressure from this.

  • First it could be your baby moving down seeing as how labor is not far off. Babies drop toward the end of pregnancy. Second make sure you drink lots of water and eat a good large healthy meal. Even if you think you have eaten enough for you, eat some more. Protein, fresh veggies and fruit. You are having to take care of more nutritional needs seeing as how your baby is growing fast these days. If it helps eat something every hour if you can't eat big meals. You feeling tired all the time is your body trying to prepare you for pregnancy. You should be taking naps everyday and going to bed early. Rest is essential right now. Even if you don't sleep just lay down and make yourself relax.

  • Continued...... I don't know if this is labor. I didn't have any lightheadedness with mine. My braxton hicks started 10 days before he was born and they gradually got more and more til one day I couldn't lay down to go to sleep. It hurt too much and then there was bloody show. So I knew it was labor. Contractions feel like a tightening around your belly that lasts for a min or so then is gone. My braxton hicks were in my abdomen but my actual labor contractions were all in my lower back.
