It sounds like you're feeling some pressure on your perineum (the area between your vagina and anus). I had the same thing and when I talked to my midwife she said it's totally normal and asked if I'd been doing perineal massage (which I hadn't). She said it really helps with that so I started it and boy was she right! It's also supposed to make birth much easier which I think is true because I only did it for my 2nd and 3rd deliveries and they were much easier than the 1st. Some websites say you should start it at week 34 but my midwife said it's never too early (or too late) to start. She even said there is a big push for more women to start doing it but not all doctors have been trained yet. Anyway, here are some websites that tell you how to do it in case you don't know:
Hope that helps! Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I've been through this 3 times!
