Baby is moving down into your pelvis, quite normal! Happens at varying times during later pregnancy. I'm sure your midwife can tell you jow much baby is engaged at your next appointment, doesn't always mean labour is closer though. Obviously the pressure will make you frequent the lavvy a lot more!

Is it your 1st? They tend to settle in to position quite early. It does mean back to peeing constantly though!

Totally normal, baby is getting into position ready for the big event, although as PPs mentioned, it doesn't mean that anything will happen any time soon. Speak to your midwife if you are unsure or feel uneasy about it, otherwise welcome back to the first trimester style peeing every 30 seconds! wink
