Has anyone experienced lightening before their due date?

Has anyone ever experienced what they call lightening before due date?


Lightening crotch? Oh yeah. Not fun times :joy: :joy: :joy: nothing helps either you can prop your feet up, that might work, others it makes the pain worse and walking and doing stretches helps. Nothing worked for me personally :woman_shrugging::pensive::joy:

Yup! Not fun and also nothing to worry about. Totally healthy and normal.


Lightening can happen weeks before your due date. I walked around at 4cm dilated for 3 weeks because my oldest decided to engage early. Meanwhile, my youngest was still at -1 station when I was fully dilated at 41 weeks. :joy:

Omgg yess it stops me in my tracts :joy::joy::joy:

Absolutely, started in 3rd trimester! I had such pressure last night I was almost positive his head was touchable and I’m just shy of 35 weeks!


Yes, I am right now. 3 weeks until due date but this is #4. So anyone’s guess…

Yes. I’m 23 weeks today and get it a lot. I’ve been getting it since 20 weeks. I had it my last pregnancy also.

Yup sure did. I could feel the baby super low in my hips.

Im due in 18 days and have been feeling it for about a month now.

Yes I have been for a few weeks.

I had it the last 3 months of pregnancy

Lightning crotch? I had it for months before delivery. It’s normal

You can get it at any time during pregnancy usually between second and third trimester and is no indicator of labor or impending labor

Yes with all three of mine, and it got worse with each pregnancy. By the third I mean it was stopping me dead in my tracks, it hurt so bad but thankfully doesnt last long.

Yes of course. Very weird feeling and get ready…walking is a mission!!! But all worth it. Its all a wonderful, beautiful, crazy experience. Its a blessing.

Absolutely, also referred to as “crotch lightening” by many women who experience it. And it feels just like it sounds. Very common, especially when baby drops lower. Painful as F**K, feels like the baby is heel stomping your cervix with stiletto heels :grimacing:.

Oh that’s the absolute worst! I remember there being work outs you can do to help with the pain. Ask your Dr.
