    37 wks pregnant.

    Hi my name is Emeline , I am nearly 37 wks pregnant, I am feeling alot of pressure on my bottom, I can't even walk far, this will be my number six child and i never had this feeling with my other kids towards the end of my pregnancies. Is the reason for this because i am dilating slowly, or is baby too heavy or am i going into labour sooner then i thnk?? It feels like baby's head is just sitting right on the pelvic bone , i can't even lie down without any pain on me pelvic bone.. I thougt the doctor usually checks for dialation round about this time..
