Yesterday around 5 pm I started to feel like my pelvic bone was going to split in two and it felt like it was on fire. It hurt so bad just to move. Well today in the car I got one of those braxton hicks contraction and I felt a ton of pressure in my pelvic area and in my butt. I still have that burning pain in my pelvic bone and the pressure, like someone is pushing on me. I'm 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow. What is this, what does it mean and is it normal? I never had this with my first kid.
