Re: 38 wks 5 days pregnant (vaginal pressure)
She's probably just getting ready to launch. When I was 38 weeks with my last one, I couldn't stand for more than a few minutes at a time. She was always pushing down on my pelvic floor, giving me those little twinges.
There's not much room in there anymore, so when she moves you'll feel it ALL over. Feeling it in your hips is a very good sign. That means she's getting farther down, stretching your pelvix out, and you might already be having productive contractions that you can't feel in your muscles.
