Have been having weird pains all day, alongside ususal Braxton Hicks 'bunching' sensations. Down really low, like mild period pains or a 'pinching' sensation. Anyone know what this is? It's not bad, just uncomfortable.
I'm guessing it's baby head banging or engaging?
Sounds like pelvic pressure?
Does it feel worse when you need to wee? I was doubled over with this last week think it was pressure on the bladder?
Other than that haven't a clue!
It could be braxton hicks too. I got that about the same time as you (week-wise), and it lasted maybe a week or so.
I havent experiences any pinching sensations but do get period like cramps all the time now.... According to my doc these are apparently stretching pains.
Have had Braxtons for months now although they are getting stronger by the day. This is more like a period cramp across the lower part of torso, near bikini line. Don't need the loo either. I get one about every five mins but not getting stronger really so I don't think it's anything to worry about. Perhaps it is just part of the Braxtons, as you say
My friends all think it's the baby's head engaging...yayee
