I feel like the baby is so compacted and it hurts everytime it moves. Feel like it's squishing my lungs so I can't breath either. Really struggling today. Is this normal? I've got another 2 months. It feels like the baby has no room to grow, even though this is my third.

It's normal. Every baby takes up a different position, I bet yours is sitting high up. Mine this time is very low so I can eat and breath fine. Also there are certain point I find when your skin is tight and needs to do another big stretch. This can make everything feel so horrible. Ask your midwife about baby's position at your neXT appointment.

I feel like it's low. I need the toilet every 30 mins. I can't go anywhere without making sure there is a toilet near by. Getting up 5 or 6 times a night to go to the toilet. Driving me nuts lol I'm knackered

Hello Mrs,

It is pretty normal - the baby is just big at this point. It is often worse sitting down as your torso is squished, try standing up to give the baby more room or being on your knees leaning over. When the baby is hurting me due to the wriggling in confined space I find that this can relieve it a little.
