Im almost 34 weeks pregnant with my first and since about 31 weeks i have been having some groin/pelvic bone area discomfort. This does`nt happen all the time but i find myself walking like a cowboy when i get the achey pain `down there` - when i get this pain it can last up for a few hours to sometimes all day. I would not say that its extrememly painful or excruciating or anything like that.
I was wondering if what i am experiencing would have anything to do with the baby`s head being down as the midwife told me at my 33 week check up that the baby`s head is `fixed` and 1cm from being engaged?.
What does the midwife mean by baby`s head `fixed`? and how many 5ths would it be on the "fifth above brim" phrase???
