I've heard that the baby can put pressure on your rectum and it can feel like you have to use the bathroom but are unable to. I am not sure about the baby pushing down and breaking your water. I am interested to know that as well since my little one has his head right at the opening of my cervix. Although he has been there for 2 weeks and my water has not broken yet. How far along are you cause the menstrual cramps sound like it could be labor. From what I have read, your water does not usually break until you are well into labor. Also, I have read that even if your water breaks, if you are standing, the baby's head can act as a cork and keep a lot of the fluid from coming out until you lay down.

I was always under the a__sumption that the baby pushing down into the pelvis/cervix was what CAUSED the water to break.

byansmommy: you seem to be highly stressed and concerned over whether you're going into labour or not. My advice for you would be to go to the ER if you're that concerned. If it is indeed something to worry about they will tell you, and if not go home and get some rest. Relax because its best for your baby. Maybe try to focus on other things. If baby wants to come he/she will come. Even if you lose you mucus plug it can grow back and it also doesn't mean that labour is impending because you could still be waiting until your due date. God luck...

I remember that pushing sensation for the last month of my last preg, she would push and it would hurt so bad in my pubic area and she would rock her head and it hurt so bad, but my water never broke, they actually had to break it at 42weeks! Oh, that sensation started around 36 weeks for me, and I had lost my MP at 35 weeks so I was like you last time thinking I was going early, and I had started dialating at 37 weeks. Let me tell you none of that mattered!!!
