Has anyone experienced a 'head butting' sensation in very late pregnancy? Weird question, sorry

I feel like my baby is head butting me, really down low in my pelvis, so much that every time they do to I feel like I'm going to wet myself! blush

Is this normal? Has anyone else every experienced a similar sensation?

I'm 38 weeks pg and the baby seems to be getting more active, I thought movement would slow down as it had less room but not so.

Yes. smile
Just wait for the 'a bowling ball is about to emerge from between my legs' sensation too. (If the head actually engages before birth.) Sorry!

Noooooo, I don't want that feeling!

I'm having a section in a week but am worried that something may happen before my ELCS date.

You can safely ignore those sensations, but not if you get any period-like cramps or backache.
Or feeling your waters may have broken...
But otherwise, all par for the course.
I hope all goes well with your birth.smile
