    Default Is it normal to feel this sort of pressure/pain?

    Hi i am 40+4 at the moment and for the past few weeks i have been getting lot of pressure down there probably because babys head is engaged but i am also feeling this pain or major discomfort as if babys head is scrubbing against my pelvic bones!
    Anyone else experience this before? Does this mean babys got a big head? I hope shes not banging her head on my bones!

    During an appointment with my midwife yesterday she said I might feel something similar to what you describe. I feel like there is pushing outwards on my pelvic bones (kind of at hip height) rather than a downward pressure feeling. It is all so weird, so many different feelings and sensations with pregnancy. Hope all goes smoothly for you, seems like what you are feel is in the normal category.

    That sounds like what I have been feeling. I have been to,d it's normal and it's just things moving etc getting ready. I have been hoping it means baby will come soon.
