dear vikas,first of all congratulation to the father to be.As the pregnancy advances the baby grows in size and the head of baby is towards pelvis out let.In last weeks the head slides further down and finally during delivery the baby is delivered with head first.In your case as your doctor has pointed it is likely that baby may come down and things become fine.If this does not happen then there are chances that baby may not be delivered by normal delivery and cesarean may need to be carried out for delivery.So do not worry and wait for the things to happen.bye and all the best.

I am almost 34 weeks pregnant with my second child. I have been having the most painful feeling on the upper right side of my stomach. I am also having so much pressure that I can no longer cross my legs as it feels like the babies head is between my legs. I am only talking about crossing my ankles while sitting with my legs outstretched. Is all this normal?

I am 36 weeks pregnant, for the last several weeks i have had upper stomach pain that comes on suddenly usually after eating. I have been to my OB and the ER. They told me it was a gallbladder problem and ordered several tests. Urine, blood, and sonogram. They all came back normal. So they told me it was Billiary Colic, put me on a NO FAT diet and sent me home swear it would get better. It has not. Now I am having more symptoms. At times I see tracers (like someone threw glitter in the air) and my blood pressure normally runs low 60/80 ish but recently has been about 120/90. I keep asking them if that is something to worry about and they tell me no. The stomach pain is not improving, and before the no fat diet i was gaining about 2 lbs per week. I had these same symptoms late in my last pregnancy as well, and ended up having a small stroke during my labor. with this labor quickly approaching I am scared it will happen again. Please help me I am in pain and at a loss as to why.

I am 37 weeks pregnant. Midwife told me I am close to 2 cm dialated and softening.She also felt the baby s head during my exam. I have been having consistent pains in my lower back and stomach. This morning I had a booger like substance in my underwear, but it was not a lot. What could this be? I have also not been feeling the baby move as often.
