I swear she is going to fall out...

of my every time I go to the bath room. Im 34wks along...and probably for about the last feels like my daughter is just going to fall out when I go to the bathroom. And when I go number two I feel like Im pushing her out. Sorry if that was a tmi...but its really kinda making me scared. Is it just her settleing in or what!?!?

  • Yes that feeling is normal its the baby getting into position and the pressure might me that you are dilating once you are 9 0r 10 centimeters you will give birth, as it looks i say you will give birht sometime this week or 2. god bless and may this pregnancy be a blessing.

  • Don't worry, a lot more has to happen before she's ready to "fall out". Unfortnuately, you may have to just get used to what you're feeling, because you may still have several weeks!

  • it is completely normal and also nothing to worry about. You will not deliver your baby in the toilet. I know about 5 women that have asked their doctor's that though. So that goes to show how common the problem is. I felt it too, but just about the week before I had my second baby. I never had it with my first, which strikes me as odd looking back on it, because he was a really easy labor.; You would think he was further down and ready!
