Pre-labor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone else experiencing this? I'm 37 weeks today and over the last several days I've noticed low, menstrual-like cramping along with my regular BH contractions. I've also had a lot of lower back pain and some weird bowel issues (sorry if that's TMI) that weren't there before. At my last visit, my MW exclaimed that the baby is completely dropped and, in her words, "ready to go". My belly is hanging pretty low on my torso and I have constant pressure on my cervix.

Basically it feels like the baby is ready to pop out at any time. Maybe that's because he is!

I try not to get too excited when the contractions happen but I can't help it. I am so ready to have this baby. :

Anyone else?

I had my first noticeable BH last night, but they started to get regular and more intense right before I logged off of MDC. With my son, I had frequent BMs before my labor started and no desire to eat, but last night I was HUNGRY, so I think it was just practice.

I could have written this post. I am experiencing all of these things too. I am a couple days over 37 weeks. Just the past 3-4 days I've had menstrual-like cramps, loose bms, stronger BH contrax that actually sort of hurt, and a very very low baby. last night I told my DH that it felt like the baby is going to fall out. Also, the last time we DTD (tmi!) it felt very different, very uncomfortable, like my cervix is way more forward and sensitive. Like there was no more room in there, iykwim.

I know I could go around like this for a while, though!

I uh have had some of those menstrual-like cramps, but I uh......blame it on the pg brain if you wish......thought I was pms? They are just like the cramps I normally get before I get my period. I just cannot believe I have been thinking that... I am indeed loosing my mind!
