So I am now 37 weeks...at my 36 week appointment my midwife told me that although I am not dilated, my cervix is anterior and very soft (That was a week ago). Now the last couple of days I have had diarrhea, nausea, decreased appetite and much more mucous discharge. (Although no blood or chunks)
Today I have had irregular strong contractions with constant period type cramping and lower back-down through my legs and inner thighs-aching as well. It doesn't come and go, and there is nothing timeable...just constant aching.
My primary midwife is leaving for her vacation in two weeks and won't be back until I turn 41 weeks....
It is looking as though it is likely she may still be in town for my birth, but this is my first natural birth, so I am unsure of the symptoms and what they really mean.
Anyone had all these and went 3-4 more weeks?
