Increased pressure: You will notice increased pressure feeling low down. It may feel like you have to pee all the time and then you only go a few drops and also may put pressure on rectum, feeling like you need to poop. However, the best way is to keep your doctor visits towards the end of pregnancy and the doctor can actually check you and assess the position and station of the baby to see if he or she has dropped.
