I think I am experiencing the phenomenon called "lightening". How early did some of begin experiencing this and what did it feel like to you?
Lightening during pregnancy actually describes the baby engaging in the pelvis before vaginal birth. It is thus named because as the baby moves down from under the rib cage, the mother may feel a sense of relief as her rib cage expands more easily allowing her to draw deeper breaths and eat without feeling full quickly.
I felt that around 40 weeks and had my daughter at 41 weeks and 3 days!
Hmm.. I've never heard of this!
