I am new to this site and I am currently 36 weeks with #3.
I am just going to jump into this, I hope that's ok.
As I said I'm 36 weeks and baby dropped two weeks ago. I have had all but one prelabor symptom. I have been having backache, cramping and a pinching feeling in my cervix, BH's that have increased but no real contractions, lost my mucus plug and had "bloody show" a week ago, also a bit of bloody mucus tonight. I have so much rectal and vagina pressure and I have checked my cervix, I am no Dr. but I feel like I am thinning and at least three cm dilated. Then tonight I went a bit crazy. I felt really out of it, restless, anxious and nesty. Then I broke down to DH, crying because I didn't go through this with my first two and I don't know how much longer this prelabor will last, nor how much more I can take. I know it is progress, it's part of the journey but not having gone through it before I fell as though I should be starting labor any second but I still have four weeks left.
I posted this on another site and got told that I am not in labor and that bloody show is more like a period. Well I know I am not in labor, I guess I just wanted another soon to be mommy to say it's all for a reason. That this is all to get my Son here. I feel like labor may start soon but I have also felt that way for a week, so....
