so yesterday, the baby dropped and I experienced a handful of braxton hicks in combination with period like cramping in my lower abdomen. Dh says that there were noteworthy cervical changes yesterday. I've also been having loose stools for a couple of days, nausea, and a nesting instinct. This is my third pregnancy and I've been having braxton hicks for months now and am inclined to not think much of this but DH has a lot of work to do today and tomorrow and is planning on staying late to get it done and he has a half hour commute and we are sooo not prepared for birth yet--- I don't even have my pool or my yoga ball aired up! I'm measuring somewhere around 37-38 weeks, so I know that it could be anytime between now and like 5 weeks from now.... my question is--- do I ask him to take a break from some of his work to help me run around and collect some things we need and get things ready for baby at home or do I just imagine it could still be a couple of weeks?
