To make a long story short I'm 1 cm dilated 50% effaced and about a week ago I had went into preterm labor and had to have a shot to stop my contractions. My last doctors appt was this past Tuesday and she told me that start now if I went into labor again she wouldn't stop me. And she put me on procardia medicine to help relax my uterus. Well ever since that day I've been feeling some contractions here and there. Yesterday I probably had 7 bowel movements and 2 today. Well today has been so different. I felt him drop and he is sooooo far descended that my tail bone ache I have a persistent ba low back ache and he keeps head butting my cervix with a force that knocks the breath out of me. He pushes so hard on it have to cross my leg really tight because I feel like he is falling out. The pain in my rectum I just as bad and its seriously become almost unbearable. Anyone else feel like this right before labor? My instincts keep telling me ill go into labor in the next couple days. Please respond. Thanks smile.gif

It's different for everyone but I would definitely make sure you have everything you'll need ready to go. Maybe try spending as much time as you are able to laying on your left side and drink plenty of fluids. Whenever I had pre-term labor signs that is the first thing they would have me do.

Sorry, I don't have any experience with pre-term labor, but frequent BM is definitely one of the common pre-labor signs. Like PP mentioned, water and lying down (left side is great for optimal birth positioning and baby's circulation, etc.) are great ideas, as is being totally ready to go. If any of your other symptoms become scary, very painful, or just don't feel "right", please ring your carer ASAP. Sending you great vibes for a healthy baby and smooth birth.
