wwyd- pressure in bottom

Postby CaelaCoo » 17 Jan 2015, 18:23

For the last hour or so I've had a rather strong pressure on my back passage. I don't need the toilet and I've not had any contractions or waters breaking.

I'm not too concerned but I just feel a bit odd in myself. Wwyd? Would you see how it goes or get checked out. The hospital is a good half hour away so reluctant to go unless really needed

Can you call doctor/midwife and ask? I would definitely get that checked out. If you're really averse to going to the hospital, would you perhaps be comfortable checking your cervix yourself? Most likely you wouldn't know what you were feeling/looking for, but on the off chance that you're dilating a fair bit, then that would answer your question right there without a trip.

I would definitely get it checked just to ease your mind!

Call for sure. That's what they're for.

I'd call and ask, but in the absence of waters going / contractions, could it be baby engaging? I know when mini man dropped (he was 4/5 engaged, 1/5 palpable for about three weeks before birth) I'd often have a similar heaviness - at times it honestly felt like I was walking with a watermelon between legs and/or buttocks... The glamours of pregnancy!

Hope it's something equally innocent.

Well we ended up going into hospital as I started having some tightnenings. The lovely junior doctor gave me an internal and announced my cervix was dialating. Cue panicking and a couple of tears.....9 weeks early after all.

Senior doctor came, and after another probe said no its all OK. Gave me some stronger painkillers and let me go home. They aren't sure what it all was really but the fact the scan showed he was head down and very low could be a good indicator of what may have happened.

I have been sent for a day of bed rest from OH lol. No getting up apart from pee.

So glad everything is OK though. I did get a bit stressed and worried.

Thank for the advice

Glad everything is ok, sounds like a frightening few hours. Enjoy your enforced bed rest!

I'm so glad you got it checked out! Too bad about the scare, but I'm glad you've got some proper answers and advice now. Have a good rest! Drink lots of water; being properly hydrated helps reduce Braxton-Hicks contractions.

Pleased to hear you were checked out and all is ok. Just to share my experience when 7 months pregnant with DD2. I had a very similar "pain" "sensation" - whatever you want to call it. Really weird - thought I was going to give birth out of my bum for a month - especially at yoga! She was lying awkwardly - transverse - for a few weeks. She finally moved and the pain stopped - such a relief!

Hopefully it is just that baby has got in an tricky position and they shuffle around soon. Take it easy in the meantime. xxx
