rnnI know the babys head will be moving further down but i was just wondering what you thought?
rnnThanks in advance !!


Answer:
hi im 35 weeks pregnant and experiencing this to i spoke with my midwife and she said it is the baby getting into position head engaging she told me just to rest but move round so that my joints dont cramp up if you find it hard to sleep at night like me she said place a pillow between your legs or under the tummy to relive the pressure also try a nice warm bath before going to bed i found my midwifes advise very helpfull as i now get a good nights sleep although i still have the shooting pains when walking so i just sit for a few minutes then start walking again .i hope this helps you and good luck with the baby.wishing you luck.:-)

Answer:
I'm assuming you'll mention this to your doc, or even call them with the info. It likely baby's head is now very far down in the pelvis, but sometimes they prefer to rest kind of lopsided or have their head turned to the side rather than straight up and down, facing front or back. I had two babies who liked to be more on one side than the other, and one who turned her head like that, which created pressure and pain on nerves more on one side of my pelvis than the other. I swear I could literally feel her turning her head–it felt like she was grinding her tiny skull into my pelvic bones. And if baby's weight is distributed more to one side than the other, this might also strain tendons and ligaments more on one side than the other, kind of like a hammock that is hung un-evenly.

Answer:
Sounds like a combination of the baby being head down, and that position causing additional stretching of the ligaments, which hurts as well.
rnnIf your baby is facing the left or 'facing out' IE 'sunny side up' s/he may be pressing on a nerve with his/her head, spine or butt which will also cause the pain you're describing.
rnnI'd ask about it, but it doesn't sound urgent.

Answer:
Does it feel sudden, sharp, stabby and sometimes numb? If so it might just be baby's head pressing on nerves. I’m 35 weeks and have been experiancing this for a few weeks now. I'll be walking along and suddenly lose sensation in one or both legs, with a sharp pain in my pelvis. Usually if I try to stretch away from the pain it will go away a little, but if not it typically only lasts a minute or two anyway.

rnnFor me I know this is not an emergency, but just a sign that baby's head is settling down where it needs to be. I remember this with my first child, and my doctor told me it was normal then.

rnnThose last few weeks can be a little rough!

Answer:
I'm 36 weeks as well and I'm feeling this too. Some days it feels worse than others, but for the most part, I think it's normal from a combination all of the muscles/ligaments stretching, the pulling apart of your pelvic bones, and the weight of the baby and pressure of his/her head. I find it hurts really bad to toss/turn at night… the pressure on my pelvis and lower stomach is almost unbearable. I'd definitely mention it to your physician at your next appointment though, especially if you really can't walk or get around. Maybe they’ll check you to see if the baby's head has engaged yet and that could explain things too. Good luck!

Answer:
Due to the hormones that are released during pregnancy your cartilage inbetween your pelvic bone which prevents rubbing gets softer in prep for the tiny one to arrive. So in turn your bones have a tendency to rub together causing a very very very uncomfortable feeling. Reason I know this is my Doctor had to explain why it injured when I walked up and down my stairs and the pain he states will continue to get worse, so I’m screwed due to the fact I am only 22.6 weeks prego. But you cant really do anything about it! Good luck and try to take warm baths and prop a pillow between your legs at night thats what helps relieve my pain. Oh and according to him the back of your pelvis will also be affected through the cartalige getting softer..

Answer:
Sounds like symphisis pubis dysfunction, where the bones that meet in the lower ehalf of your pelvis have seperated slightly. Go and see your midwife or GP and get referred to a physiotherapist, don't put up with the pain any longer than you’ve to and don't worry the baby will be perfectly fine, very well protected in there.

Answer:
I know you don't want to seem like a panicky pregnant lady, but you probably need to call your physician. That being said, this sounds like sciatica. Baby is **probably** pushing on your sciatic nerve… Still, constant pain, no matter the cause, needs to be looked in on.

Answer:
i had the same problem before, saw the doctor and was told each thing was OK .the pain was because i had a really big baby ( 9 pounds).

Answer:
Don't pay games or ask questions like this on the site. Please rather goto the emergency room. Good luck

Answer:
That´s normal.

Answer:
my sister had a lot of randomn side pain when she was pregnanrt too, but i don't have any children so i'm not sure, the babies position could be bothering u it might be in more of a breech position? i'd say get a sonogram to make sure the baby is alright cause if it hurts u theres a chance your baby is uncomfortable,pain is typically rhe way your body knows something is up! at this point the baby should kinda feel like shes having a seat on your pelvis, have u fallen or anything maybe? talk to your doctors
