I just noticed today the underside of my belly feels extra heavy and extra hard - The pain doesnt wrap around like a contraction but is such an intense pressure - This is my 3rd child and I have never had this. I also have rectal pressure too. My bowels are regular - does anyone know what is up?

How far along are you?  Could be the baby is in a funny position and it's putting pressure on spots you haven't noticed before... maybe baby has even dropped?   If it really is  bothering you and still is tomorrow, maybe give the dr a call.

It's possible the baby is dropping,I've been having alot of preassure in the rectal and crotch areas for about 2 weeks now. I went to my 36 week appointment today and the doctor checked and said the baby has dropped deep into the pelvic area. This is my 4th baby and I've never felt anything like it before,it started as just a little preassure now I feel like the baby could fall right out everytime I stand up. You should ask your doctor though.

I have extreme pressure too and went out and bought one of those maternity belts... I didnt think it would work but I was in soo much pain I wanted to try anything... I have been wearing it for 2 days now and the pain has gone away for the most part! Gosh its such a big relief!!

How`s my pregnancy doing?
