I have had the aching feeling in my lower pelvis for a while now - especially after sitting/laying for a period of time  - it hurts to move!  I am only 34 1/2 weeks and this is my first so I don't know if it is a sign that labor is near.  I think it just means that the baby is getting into position and putting more pressure on that area.  Good luck!

i think you are right about the baby getting into position---  today at my drs appointment she told me that i am 1 cm dil. and 50 % effaced and she said that the baby has deffinately dropped since 1 week ago---  i think discomfort is deffinately a sign that baby is coming soon!!!!  best of luck to you too!

I'm 34 (almost 35 now) and haven't been checked yet, but I hear from so many people that you actually get a burst of energy right before D-day (nesting) I feel your achy pelvis pain though! And my belly hangs so low that everyone I see has to comment on it! "your belly hangs so low!" trust me I know! I get checked on my 36 week visit and I'm excited to see if these aches and pains (and contractions too) are doing anything except keeping me awake at night! Good luck for you!
