Lower stomach and back pressure

(2 Posts)

I'm 32+3 and have been experiencing a lot of pressure in my lower stomach/groin and lower back which comes and goes (not regularly) today but I just can't get comfortable at all.

This is my second pregnancy but I was induced at 38 weeks and had an epidural before I was 1cm dilated due to a pre existing condition so haven't experienced this before.

I can feel bump moving all ok but I'm just wondering if this is normal and not to worry?

Thanks smile

I had this last week when i was half way through 32 weeks. I panicked thinking it was labour pressure and went to get checked, i was actually having contractions 3-4 minutes apart on the monitor i just couldnt feel them at all. Normally i feel my stomach getting tighter with the odd Braxton hick but thats it. She said that explained the pressure and it was just my uterus preparing for what it has to do in a couple weeks time! Maybe go get checked but i think your okay x
