  • i am 35 weeks and i always have the pressure when i go to the bathroom. I guess it is normal, because the baby is settling in for delivery, i my self am not too concerned about it, because i am only dilated to 1 cm

  • I don't know how much I am dilated. I am guessing they will start checking me at my next appointment which is Tuesday and I'll be 34 weeks.

  • try a stool softener like colace without the laxative to help with the straining/pressure if it worries you
    it's helped me a lot.
