Well these subforums are a good idea! Thought I'd start one off with something that's not a serious health issue but really really annoying.
I'm 32 weeks with my first pregnancy. Varicose and spider veins getting worse (damn dodgy genes), The little one has his foot permanently stuck under my right rib and just likes to scrape it along my ribs every now and then. Nothing out of the ordinary I expect.
The one thing that is just frustrating me to no end though is that his head is pressing on my bladder all the time. We were walking all over the city on the weekend and I just needed to go to the bathroom constantly. It was almost painful, even when my bladder was empty.
Are there any tricks/old wives tales to get them to move just a little? I think I'm subconsciously drinking less but obviously that's not a good idea!

Not sure if it will help but you can look into optimal foetal positioning

I've been having that sort of problem lately too, I keep feeling like I really need to wee, but when I go to the loo there's not much there! It was a little better after I had a nice warm bath, I think the baby changed positions a bit.

Don't think there's a lot that can be done about it unfortunately! I am 32 weeks too and my little man is already just engaged, so his head has squished my bladder totally! I am ok sitting down, as soon as I stand up I need to go instantly. It just gets worse and worse as time goes on as far as weeing goes, I only made it to 36 weeks with my first, wondering if this one will come early too. I wouldn't mind, I am so over it!! Not too early though of course
