35 weeks and feeling pressure down there.... adult content

I'm just at 35 weeks now and yesterday when I had a bm it was almost painful and there was alot of pressure. Now this morning, I've felt the same kind of pressure on my bottom, but I keep going to the bathroom and nothing comes out. Is this a sign of something or just normal when you are this far along? I don't remember it with my first. I'm measuring very big and my first was pretty big, so not sure if that has something to do with it.

  • Perhaps your baby turned? I know I'm 36 weeks and feel like I have a bowling ball between my legs.

  • You have maybe 20 pounds(?) of uterus and baby and fluids pressing on your intestines and ab area, it makes sense that it would feel like pressure and even block the *flow* of things-- unfortunately.
    It sounds pretty normal.
    How are things otherwise?
