This is my second pregnancy, i just had my first baby april 30th of last year so they are close together. This time around I have a lot of pressure, it kind of feels like the baby is just going to plop out of me. It gets worse when I go to the bathroom, I feel like if I push im going to push the baby out. I am also carrying very low, which she said can also be the cause of the pressure. Do any of you feel like that? I asked the doc and she said as long as im not having contractions it should all be okay.. well i have no contractions... Im just afraid to push because i feel like im going to make my water explode... please tell me im not the only one that feels like this.......

faye, I forget... when is your due date? Im not sure Im can help with your question Im carrying kinda low but my baby is chillin in my rib cage holding on for dear life so I dont feel much of anything down low.

im Due July 6th. see, my baby is no where near my rib cage, all the kicks are below my belly b___ton still! crazy huh? just always feels like he going to fall right out. Like my muscles arent strong enough to hold him or something....

Hi Faye!!!! It's ejmeskan from the Maymommies!!! I am due in Oct!! I thought my babes were close together! :) Sorry to hear about all the pressure. Didn't your water break with your last one? I can see why you are worried with this one. I had the opposite problem. My son didn't drop so even though it took me 2 hours to go from 3cm to complete it took me 4 hours to push him out!!!! :) So just try to think that at least it will make for easier labor!!! :) Good luck. Do you know what you are having?

OMG HI!!!! wow!!! preggo again too!! yay! yeah, they will be 14 months apart! Yeah my water broke with the first one, what a mess that made. lol. 4 hours of pushing... wow your a strong one. I only had to do 1 hour. This time around its a BOY! now i have one of each. We should keep in touch! Can you beleive that they are already ONE!?

HI!!! I saw your name and was OMG!!!!! haha! Just like your reaction I suppose!!! Yes it was a bummer because I went so quick and thought...wow this is a breeze...then he just wouldn't drop!! Oh well it was still only like 6 hours or something so that is good for 1st time. My little man (Jacob) turns one on Wednesday! What is your daughters name again? Did you have a big party for her? We are having a John Deere party this weekend! We aren't finding out what we are having with this one either. I think it will be a girl though but we will see!!! I didn't get sick once, not one day with Jacob and I was sick for about 3 weeks straight with this one!!!

hi faye, i am 28 wks 3 days, and i feel a lot of pressure especially when i go to the bathroom too, both of my other two my water broke, so i understand ur concern! but i think its just where she is sitting, i think she is pretty low too. i wouldn't worry too much unless it gets to be unbearable pressure then i would def call ur doc or go to the er. good luck!

thank you so much cnasmom! that makes me feel alot better. When your water broke with the second baby were you early or was it close to your due date? I guess I am just concered that my water is going to break again and this time it will be much earlier then with my daughter ( I was 38 weeks with my daughter)

ejmeskan, you were only in labor for six hours!?! HOLY COW. I was in labor for 26 hours, but i loved it. My water broke and my contractions werent regular so I had to get pictocin. Then i was taking forever to dilate. Almost had to have a c-section, THANK GOD i didnt. My daughters name is Kylie. We did have a big party for her. She had so much fun. I was really happy too because my mother in law for once didnt take over. Since she has been born we have been at each others throats. So this ones a suprise for you eh? I couldnt do it, my husband had to know because we had a bet going on. i told him it was a boy and he thought it was a girl, well i turned out to be right. Boy! For our next baby that will be a surprise... hopefully. whats your DD?

hey faye - I'm due 6/2 and have 3 weeks to go. I'm 3cm and 80% as of a week ago and I totally know what you mean! Every time I sit on the toilet I'm freaked out he's gonna fall out and into the toilet!:) I have a ton of pressure down there all the time. Walking is difficult too - I feel like my pelvic bones are going to give and he'll fall on the floor. I had my dd in Sept of 06 - she just turned 20 months.

 

Faye84 - May 12

Oh good. Fefer have you been feeling that pressure for a while now? Ive had it for the past month or so, im 32 weeks right now. I bet you are going to have the baby well before your due date. your already at 3cm!!! was your daughter early? I had my daughter at 38 weeks.

I LOVED labor!! I thought it was so awesome!!! So when people think that the 4 hours was horrible...I actually didn't mind it...until the end...that I got tired!! :) My due date is around Oct 18th but they aren't confirming it this time until the 20 week ultrasound which will be May 30th. I am super excited for labor again!!! I love my mother in law...she is so wonderful and although we haven't been at each other's throat she is the same way...tries to take over everything and make it her own! Actually she just told me today she is taking Friday off to come down and help me and I LIED and said I wasn't going to be home so no need!!!!

I was induced a day before my dd's due date - too much swelling. So..,I don't know what she would have been I was dilated about 2cm a month early - but not so effaced. My dr told me to lay low for a week so I didn't deliver before 37 weeks. I THINK I'm going to go early but who knows... :) I didn't actually start feeling the pressure until about 2 weeks ago and it was very sudden. I think that's when he dropped and got LOW... made my pelvic area feel like breaking.

Hey Faye...I am due July 4th and I do feel the same way you do...Cept this is my first baby. I feel like if i were to squat down she would just come out...so to speak. So i know how you feel...I don't know what to tell you bout it though just thought i'd let you know that i know how you feel. Hope everything goes well anyways =)

 

Faye84 - May 13

thanks Charlibabe, that does make me feel better. fefer1 hopefully you go full term!!! im sure you will go a little earlier since its your second. ejmeskan i LOVE LOVE LOVE labor too! I wish i could have done it with out the drugs but there was just no way. It is such an amazing feeling, you cant even describe it. I cant wait to do it again either. what i hated was how tired my arms were after, i think it was from my pulling my legs up and tightening them. I could barley hold my daughter because they were so sore. I just have this horrible feeling right now that i am going to go into labor early :(

ejmeskan i forgot to ask, were you guys trying or was this a suprise? This one was a suprise for us, a good one though. Its nice not having the pressure of trying to get pregnant thats for sure.

 

ejmeskan - May 13

Yes it was a little surprise but we knew we wanted to start trying soon anyway so it was the same thing...just a welcomed surprise so we didn't need to worry about actually getting PG it just happened!!! I nursed for 8mo and then got pg the following month (even though I know plenty of people right now who are still nursing and PG!)
