Pressure..Feels Like my period is going to start!

Postby cristalscience » Sat Nov 23, 2013 1:14 pm

I am 37 weeks and 2 days along and have been feeling this pressure in my groin/vagina on and off since about 34 weeks. It really feels like my period is going to start...crampy and kinda painful...I have researched it and they say it is normal to feel this but not until like 38 weeks or so. So, I am wondering if anyone has felt this sensation early on? Sometimes when I am walking it really feels like my BB is going to just fall out. Any advice or similar experience stories will be extremely helpful.

I have felt it since 34 weeks... Only when I'm standing too long or walking for a while. It normally happens after or during a strong bh contraction, sometimes my tummy will stay hard for 30 min at a time unless I rest. Anyways... I talked to my dr about it and she said it's normal and to rest and drink lots of water until the feeling goes away. I stand for 8-10 hours a day & now at 36 weeks got cut back to 6 hour days because of the pain/cramping after a long day.
