Re: Any signs of labor, or anything?

yes, contractions are getting more painful, lower back pain, increase/change in discharge (hoping its parts of mucus plug!) and just overall feeling crappy. I feel like I am about to get my period. The worst though is this pressue/ache really low in my crotch area. Oh my gosh, I can hardly walk, especially after sitting for a little bit. I really don't know what is normal late pregnancy pains and what is prelabor/labor. I'm due wednesday

I won't get to induction plans until 42 weeks because we're going for another VBAC, just we don't need to at all!

I have this also. And just a general feeling of fatigue and achiness down there. Some nights I just can't get comfortable. My doula suggested making sure to stay hydrated. I think it does help a bit with being more comfortable to sleep at night. i'm due on friday, so we are pretty close

Nope, nothing yet. 37 weeks on Sunday. I have felt more huge though, and I got a cramp today in my lower area, along my bikini line almost. I've definitely felt more pressure with LO's head down there.

Re: Any signs of labor, or anything?

Nothing here. I didn't have any pre-labor signs with my two previous pregnancies either. Once contractions started, labor started but nothing beforehand. I'm due in 8 days but will probably go past that.

Re: Any signs of labor, or anything?

I don't think I've got anything going on yet...unless I'm having symptoms that I can't/don't notice since this is my first. I have achiness in my groin when I stand up after sitting down for a while, but I've had that for a week or so already...no idea if that's just from Baby being low or what. We are 38w 3d now. Have an ultrasound on Monday to get Baby's approximate weight and then in Tuesday my dr said she is going to check my cervix.

Re: Any signs of labor, or anything?

Last night I woke up with really strong contractions at 1:30 they lasted for a while but went away then came back intermittently with cramping until 6:00am. I feel kinda yuck and having a lot of pressure this morning so keeping my fingers crossed!

Lots of back/pelvic pressure. Cramping @ night, and stronger contractions throughout the day. I am ready now, not sure how much more of this I can take...

Re: Any signs of labor, or anything?

So on we'd I have an appt and will get checked. Dd is the 22nd dr guessed I will go 4 th to 8 th. I am 1 cm what do you think your magic number will be to get your parents down. Mine are coming when I tell them to it is an 18 hr drive if they both come. If only my mom comes she will fly. I am thinking 3 cm bc it is my fourth and that is what I was when water broke with dd
