Answer: Hi, Sometimes that baby can position itself quite low and it can cause discomfort. It does not indicate that the baby will come early. There is also a hormone that is produced that helps to relax and loosen your joints later in pregnancy. It could be this that is also causing problems. Mention this to your midwife and you may need to see a Physiotherapist for advice and treatment. Best wishes, Alex
