    I'm unsure on whether what I'm experiencing is normal.
    I have a lot of pelvic pressure this morning which I can only describe as having a bowling ball between my legs and shooting pains up my bits, also the insides of my legs have gone numb and lower backache. Is this normal for this stage or is it a cause for concern. My bump is so low too [​IMG]

    I'm very low this time (4th pregnancy) and i feel constant pressure down there exactly how you describe and when i stand up and walk its like someone's burning or ripping me apart!! I think it can be quite normal if the baby is engaged or pressing low down, i do remember this in my last pregnancy at about 18-19 weeks i almost wanted to push it all back up (tmi) im quite swollen down there to - the joys of pregnancy!!!!

    Hiya, I'm in my second pregnancy, my little boy is 18month. I'm now 38 weeks but from about 30 weeks I was the same as you, bump was low, pains up mt bits, in my groin, legs back. I could barely move sometimes especially if id been sitting down and then trying to get up ,I just kept getting told it was spd and given a contact number for physio by my midwife. I'm not sure whether that's what it was but it was certainly uncomfortable. I hope it eases soon for you xx

    Wow you are certainly all bump!

    Some babies engage from 32 weeks so it might be that they've moved into your pelvis quicker which would explain the cramps your getting.

    If your movements have changed or you start getting period pain I would call the labour ward, they might just examine you but it will put you at ease.
