i am 32 weeks pregnant. This past week i have been feeling a lot more pressure, and finding it harder to walk, i have also been getting those painless braxton hicks a lot more frequently. now i dont mean omg i think i'm going to have my baby next week, im just wondering how early do they start prepairing to come out, and could this mean it will be early meaning like a week or two?

Is this your first baby? at 32 weeks the baby starts to prepare to the entry to this world it is very possible that the baby has engaged in the pelvis making it feel heavier. Braxton hicks are normal. If your water breaks or you loose your mucus plug or the contactions become uncofortable then I would think you are going to have the baby other then that its your body getting ready. And if this is your first preg then this could last a long time till the baby is ready to come out. Welcome to the joys of motherhood! oh and be careful when you sneeze or cough or laugh to hard cause you could pee on yourself! LOL

Sorry to tell you, the next 8 weeks of your pregnancy are going to feel like that. Just means the kids almost done baking and ready to be served.

There is no way to tell when you are going into labor. Some people have symptoms like you are having for months before they go into labor. You never know!

Sorry im 35 weeks and ever since 28 or 30 weeks i have had painful braxton hicks and lots of pressure, it stinks but youll most likely go to your due date.... I wish mine would hurry just to put me out of the pain! Good luck!!!! Lots of walking!

i think i read somewhere that if you start getting 4 or more braxton hicks in an hour then its a sign on pre term labour.

the pressure could just be the baby getting ready but i dont think its really an indicator of when they'll come.

Sounds about right with what I had, and my first I had to be induced cause I was 9 days over due.. lol

LOL I had that same feeling. However my son was breach and had no intention of coming out. He was delivered by c-section almost a week past the due date.

Good luck to you and congrats on the baby.
