When in Labor: I am sure the doctor and your OB have advised you about the end of pregnancy and when they want you to call them. Your experience is not unusual.

Sounds normal: The end of pregnancy at term is an uncomfortable time for some women. The sense of pressure is quite real, and depending on your size, you truly may not have much room left, and things like urination, bowel movements and walking can be affected. Sounds like you are getting regular care. The best person to ask of course is your physician! good luck and hope all goes well!
