Here's a question for veteran mamas. About two weeks ago I felt my cervix, just for kicks. It felt firm. Tonight I felt it again, and it feels mushier than it did two weeks ago. Is that it starting to "ripen"? Also have noticed that the BH contraxs have started to have the menstural crampy-type feeling to them, down low on my abdomen. Has anyone else noticed these things in a previous pregnancy, and how far in advance of labor were they? Just curious. :) I'm 34 weeks with my first, btw.
Another cervix question...I feel little twinges in it from time to time. Is that related to "ripening"? These things feel different from when it's my baby hitting at it, that's why I'm wondering.
Thanks in advance!
