Hi Sammy

I would ring your midwife if I was you just to be safe, Mondays two days away and a long time to be worried.

Hi, I am 39 weeks but I have had this quite often, from about 38 weeks. Feels like I'm carrying a big bag of sand in my pants!!! Dopn't know what it is but it's not caused me any probs .

I am 31 weeks pregnant and have been feeling like that for about a week or two. As this is my first baby I wasn't sure if it was normal or not??

I have been told I am having a big baby and she has been head down since 24 weeks. Feels like I have a football between my legs half the time and it's quite painful when I walk with the pressure of her head low down.

If anyone can advise whether this is normal I'd appreciate it too.

hi, im 32 weeks pregnant and i have been having these feelings for over a week now. i had a chat with my midwife and he said it was the babys head pushing down, and i should expect more of these pains. i never had this with my first child, so i worried too! if in doubt ask your midwife, but i have been told these pains are quite normal. xx

Your baby is engaged now, I think the best practice is go to the doctor.

Yes.. very familiar feeling... I'm now at 29 weeks with my second child and have had this feeling for about a week now... it's the weight of baby and gravity pushing down and the head being in position (even though this can change between now and when the time comes!)  In addition, our muscles and ligaments are softening around the pubic and pelvic area in preparation for the 'grand opening' and arrival of the babs... 

I find if the pain becomes intense as I'm walking around, it's a good time to practise concentrating on the breath... to the point where we become our breath and detach ourself from the pain... good practise!! 

Hope this is useful and best wishes all Xx
