Hey Gang!
  I haven't been around much this pregnancy...everything has been pretty normal this time around. My pressure Is normal and No Diabetes for me this time! Anyways, Im 31 weeks and going for a check up on Wednesday. The last few days, Ive been feeling a lot of pelvic pressure.Nothing timeable, because its more of a constant pain. I get sharp pains, occasionally in the birth canal area too. So theres really no belly pains at all. Should I be worried? Im tiny, work in healthcare and Im constantly on my feet. Im worried this baby is just going to pop out. I carried my first till 36 weeks, went to be induced cause of my pressure and I was already in labor. Any advice?

I felt something similar and it was just pelvic pain from it loosening etc. It eventually went away.

You had gd with first baby but not the second!? That's awesome! I hope with my second kid to skip that part lol :) off topic, sorry lol

I know right! I was completely shocked and the doctor said I don't have any of the signs or risks of gd so he doesn't know how I had it the first time ( I had a different doctor then) but yeah, just cause you had it the first time, doesn't mean you will this time! I hope you don't, I know it sucks!!!

Just the usual advice... try to stay well hydrated and get off your feet when you can catch a break. I worked on the ward until week 29 and noticed that I got more Braxton Hicks over the day (also found it hard to stay hydrated, because in the hospital drinking is easily forgotten and time to pee is also sparse depending on where you work), but as soon as I stopped working, their frequency went down. I didn't feel any significant pressure, but yeah... in the later weeks, there is more weight on the pelvic floor, so it makes sense that you'd feel it more.

Thanks...Id like to work atleast to 33 or 34 weeks but Im not sure my body will allow it. And maybe this is just Braxton hicks, im not sure since I don't think I never felt them..just like my contractions until labor was medically sped up.
