Pressure - is this normal!?

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and have had a feeling on pressure on/in my vagina for the past couple of days, I also feel a bit tender underneath. I'm not in pain or having any cramps it just feels weird and uncomfortable. I don't think it's a UTI or infection but does feel worse when I need a wee which is all the bloody time!

I have got quite bad anxiety at the moment as have previously had treatment for CIN and although my consultant is getting my notes she basically said that a preterm loss was most likely between weeks 18-24 and there isn't anything they can do about it so I'm overly watching for anything that may be an issue!

Any advice would be appreciated!

Yes- very normal! I had it from around 20 weeks and still have it now when standing up- I'm almost 36 weeks. It's just the weight of the baby making everything feel swollen and heavy down there. Does it get better if you lie or sit down?

Thank you, it doesn't really but I've been focussing on it because it's been worrying me so I wonder if that's not helping iyswim!?

Yeah I had that around then - at one point it was so bad I was convinced I was going to go to the loo and find a foot poking out of my vagina. It went away after a week or two and is intermittent now (37 weeks). I've also had LLETZ for CIN.

I agree junosmum- at times it felt like everything would fall out! My advice is put your feet up as much as possible- it's normal.

Thank you both! Just another beautiful side effect of pregnancy it would seem wink
