30 weeks, 2nd baby, what's going on?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant and for the last week I've had really bad rectum/pelvic pressure.

It feels like I need to go to the loo and push all the time, I've had really bad diarrhora too and have virtually cleared my system, sorry if that's tmi.

Sometimes the pressure in the rectum/pelvis is so painful I can't sit and have to rock/move through the pain.

I also haven't slept for the last two nights as I sleep on my side and sleeping in that position is causing a lot of pressure/pain as if I'm squashing the babies head.

I even have to get up and move about, whinge with the pain and keep moving to just go through it.

I never experienced any of this with my 1st and ended up being induced so I'm at a loss to what's going on.

Any thoughts/similar experiences would be appreciated.

I have no idea, but I'd suggest you ring your MW and talk it through with them as it sounds very unpleasant.

Potentially speaking it sounds like early labour, but it's very early still (as I'm sure you realise!) so I think they'll be keen to get you in to hospital and make sure that's not what's happening. There are things they can do to try and stop early labour if that is the case.

Good luck.

Yeah everything's fine but still getting the same.

I'm hoping it's just the babies head in engaging as it definetly feels like I'm squashing him if I cross my legs but just seems way too early.

Strange how each of your own pregnancies can vary!
