Hiya, - gotta love a post about a vagina lol.
Anyway I'm 24 weeks tomorrow and for the last few weeks have had a lot of vaginal pressure. When I have a wee I almost feel like baby is going to fall out (if only it was that easy).

Didn't have this with my first - now 23 months.
Should I be worried or is it normal?

Thank you

I had this exact thing at 22 weeks. I went into hospital to get checked in the end. It was nothing. MW said just things moving around. They didn't mind though and said it was better safe than sorry.

How is your pelvic floor? It might be relaxin has affected these muscles so things aren't as well supported as before?

I sometimes feel like baby is soooo heavy! Sometimes I can feel bursting for a wee but when I go it feels difficult to wee properly because baby feels heavy and sitting right there. I read somewhere you should rock back and forward to ease the pressure off your bladder to help empty it.

I'm 26 weeks with my second.

Thanks for your replies.
It's such an odd feeling everytime I wee I almost want to put my hand down there to hold everything in and up - then I think peeing on my hand isn't he nicest of ideas lol.

Of gosh yes my pelvic floor must start squeezing blush
