Girls is the pressure feeling like carrying a severely heavy load? I felt huge last night and so drained and my bump was as hard as a rock,same again this morning and a pulling sensation down low too?

yeah mama i have moments like that too. My tummy gets rock hard and when i go to stand up its like ive a big load sitting on my tummy. I think it is braxton hicks contractions. Just your womb preparing for labour. Plus my pelvis is causing me havoc at the moment but thats good cause it means its stretching for labour.

Yeah I think it's braxton hicks too. It's funny I don't seem to be getting them anymore. and sometimes the pressure gets so much that you think baby's going to fall out !! I never plucked up the courage to do the perinial massages :-8 I can't explain it but since being pregnant I don't like going near down there :-8 With DH it's fine once we get going iykwim but it's just weird. I'm fairly good with my pelvic floors though.

Hi Tigletts! I find it hard to 'keep clenched' when doing pelvic floor excercises and have'nt been great at doing them up to this week. But sure I surpose every little helps!
