Needing advice

I'm 33+ weeks and this past week I've been feeling lots of pressure in my pelvic area, I've never had Braxton hicks before but I'm assuming I've had those as well. When I use the washroom it feels like my baby is pushing down there or something, vie also been having cramps in my lower tummy feels like gas but not ok sure because my baby is like moving so much at times it feels intense. I have a doc appointment on Monday but was just looking for any advice or if anyone else is experiencing this feeling??

Your baby could've dropped, explaining the extra pressure you're feeling down there which is normal.  Also the cramping in lower abdomen is most likely the braxton hicks contractions, i get them all the time and im 33W1D.
But your doctor knows best!

Sounds like baby has dropped. I've had a lot more pressure too and more intense BH but they still aren't doing much. Not too much longer and my doc said it won't change til baby is born

I thought the baby wasn't supposed to drop until a month before your due date? Now I'm scared lol!!

well I have felt pressure on and off since I went into the third trimester but now these past week or so its gotten to the point where I feel like I have to walk slow or my baby will fall out when I go to the bathroom. although that's not true. I feel like its all so new again bcuz I never experienced these problems with my first.
