    Default Anybody else feels as though their baby's about to drop out? lol

    I'll be exactly 33 weeks on Thursday and the past few weeks it feels as though there's a lot of pressure 'down there' I don't remember feeling this way with my other kids, though it's been almost 5 years since I've been pregnant with my last. Every time I sneeze, cough, move etc it seriously feels like the baby will just drop out at any minute (if only labour were that easy!) I had an antennal appointment this morning and the midwife said I'm not engaged yet, but reckons I could have an early labour (my children were born before 40 weeks).

    Yes. I have been like that since 31weeks. Am now 35w and not engaged at all. This is my first bub. From what I have been told tho it may just be because of your previous pregnancies that muscles aren't as tight?? I have know idea. Maybe some people just feel it more. I get worse as the day goes on. But haven't been told it means early labour. Maybe someone else here on bh can give us some insight

    I did feel like that, Dd felt right down there, especially when walking I had a lot of pressure! She was also engaged weeks prior to my due date, ended up going into labour at 41+1 so I don't think it's an indication of early labour.
