Pubic pressure... Early delivery?

Hi ladies,
I am currently 31w2d and for the last wk or so I feel a lot of pubic pressure... Specially when I walk or stand dor a long period of time or change sleeping positions. My guess is the baby has dropped, or he's bigger, or is engaged.. Or all of the above.
I guess my question is: have any of u ladies felt this pubic pressure early in early 30 wks and have gone full term, or does this pressure mean baby is already in position and ready to come soon ?(God I hope not).

I didn't have any pressure before I delivered my 2nd. She came 3.5w early. I was induced with my son so he never dropped.

Did you call your doc to make an appointment?

I am 33 weeks and 2 days and have had this for a couple of weeks. Soooo uncomfortable and I did not have it with my first. My doc says it it pretty normal to happen since this is not my first.

I had pressure with my 2nd. She had dropped around 32 weeks and just kinda stayed low. It was definitely uncomfortable, but she was born 3 days before her due date.

The last 12 weeks (30 on) I was in a TON of pain from this pressure - I gained 70lbs in my belly alone and the baby just dropped right in there. It doesn't mean the baby is coming as they can turn as late as the day of (a good reminder to those worried about breach) but sleeping with the pillow between your legs, propping the legs up and gentle stretching helps...

Good luck!

It doesn't mean baby is coming early. :)
