So I'm 37 +3 over the last couple of days the following had been happening :- 1) Lots of period type pains (back and front) 2) Feeling like i have a pain in pubic bone and pelvic area 3) Bottom of bump feeling very heavy and kinda hurts when i move about .
My first feeling is that this is the baby's head engaging ......
Anyone else experienced similar things ........??
Also forgot to mention sometimes feels like the pains are gong into top of my legs too .
Yes exactly the same! I am 38+4 and baby's head was engaged when I saw the midwife 10 days ago. Sore achey bump, uncomfortable and heavy. Had enough now! I do remember this with ds but had more opportunity to rest when I had him - now I am busy chasing him about! x
Ohh benji that does sound like hard work ......have to say only thing that eases it at the min is sitting down and i haven't been doing much of that lately ! I'm seeing the MW today anyway ...so hopefully that's what she will tell me ......Ready to go now :-) xx sleep is getting quite like hard work too :-(
37 + 2 here. I have cramps, lower back ache, tops of thighs aches, and pressure on bladder. Had to take paracetamol this morning as cramps were so painful. Body gearing up I suppose but don't remember this with DC1. MW said baby might pop in & out of engagement. Yesterday I was fine but today was murder. Kind of want baby to come now!
37 exactly here and iv had the cramps and back pain , been to see m/w today and she said baby 4/5 so not totally engaged but going in the right direction, oh and iv had loads of strong braxton hicks, cant wait to meet my little man
im hoping not, im on baby no 4 and with the last two babies their head never engaged or even looked like it was going to engage until day of labour, im hoping its going to be soon, maybe just wishful thinking, wish the braxton hicks would turn to contractions
I feel a bit pathetic and squirmy right now tbh. It would be great not to need the induction but its hard to persuade myself to start running around having sex and curries! I'll see how I get on overnight.
Having some brief but frequent tightenings, no idea if that will lead to anything. I will let you know. Hope your baby starts burrowing further in the right direction too.
