In brief: Labor
As long as that fetal heart rate is ok, your baby is ok.
Remember, if you were going to pass through the narrow birth canal, you'd find it easier to pass if you settled down quietly and went with the flow. This is a normal phase of labor.

In brief: Tight spaces
The room to poke you has decreased as baby enters the transition of labor.
Heart rate is the best gauge of health in labor, with normal fluctuations caused by changing pressures, but the recovery from slower to regular rate tells you & the team that things are going well.
