This is my 3rd baby. I'm currently 34 weeks along. My baby is very, very low. He dropped at 30 weeks, just like my other babies (who were full term). However, I've been urinating way more frequently, having frequent loose bowel movements, and a very achy back this past week. Then, on Thursday, I had menstrual type pain all day. So bad, that all I wanted to do was lie down all day. My mw and I decided to do a cervix check, and I was 50% effaced and 1 cm dialated. Of course, this could mean nothing, but it could mean something, so my mw recommended that I take it easy for the next few weeks. I have been taking it easy (well as easy as you can with 2 other kids), and today I woke up feeling really sick to stomach, having a couple loose bowel movements and then pretty intense menstrual cramping. All I wanted to do was lie down and sleep. This went on for a few hours until I took a bath. I feel better now, but I'm so stressed out that this baby will come early. My last baby was born at home, and this is a planned homebirth as well, but I can't have him at home prior to 37 weeks. Any thoughts?
