32 weeks pregnant...pressure...what do you think?

It is fairly heavy pressure in my vagina....makes me wanna poop....but cant......uncomfortable...mainly lying down.

NO contractions,blood, cramping...nothing...but just the pressure?

Babies head? Should I be worried?

  • im having the SAME problems & im only 26 weeks.. the pressure has been so bad on my pelvic area that its dropped me a few times and I couldnt move off the couch yesterday! When I talked to my doc, she told me to take Milk of magnesia because I could be constipated as well as having some pregnancy pains. But, you ARE farther along than myself!! Good luck!

  • I just saw your post...lol

    Mine is right in my vaginal area....very uncomfortable when I am laying down...feels better to sit strait up....

    This is my 3rd baby so I think I am ok....just never felt this much pressure down there so early....

    I really really think its my babies head pushing down....

  • After multiple pregnancies it tends to be more pronounced because the ligaments that hold up the uterus aren't as stretchy anymore.

  • It is normal. The baby gets heavier and causes pressure on your area. It only gets worse from here, so hang in there :)
