Im 34wks and 6days. That happens to me all the time. I've had two pelvic exams (due to frequent contractions to rule out preterm labor) and everything is fine. It's most likely our babies settling/dropping into the pelvis in preparation for birth but nothing to worry about unless you have signs of labor. I understand your concern though because no one ever told me you get pressure in your anal area except when its time to push!
