Could this be it??

I am 40 weeks and 4 days. Been having contractions every 10-15 mins since 5 am and now it is 7. Hoping these stick around! Last night I had a dull lower backache and lots of cervical mucus. Not sure whether to send hubby to work or not!

Still 15 min apart, light contractions. Had an appointment with my midwife and I am 4 cm, but my cervix is very posterior (toward the back) and she doesn't think baby's head is pushing on it effectively since I am carrying so far out in front of me. She suggested a belly band or other fabric to pull my belly in closer and tip the baby more upside down. I tied an Aden & Anais blanket around my belly and pull it tight when I am walking around the house- I can definitely feel a difference in the pressure!
