well i'm 36w 1d. last night i had contractions for five hours. the were even the contractions that get stronger! i was a little excited, because i can't wait to have my baby, but i was scared because 36 weeks is too early for me. i'm not sure if the contractions did anything cervix wise, i guess i'll find out tomorrow at my appointment. i've also had lots of nausea and loose movements (sorry tmi) i think that's a good sign if i remember right. today i've also been having contractions today but nothing that would be considered true labor. well, i just had to share! we are all getting so close, i can't wait till we all start popping like popcorn.

those sound like positive signs! exciting.

I'm 36 wks tomorrow and all day I've had strong BH ctx and a few twinges here and there. The baby has been moving a ton - seems like it's getting ready to make some kind of move!

How exciting for you! I'm only 34 weeks so I need my baby to stay put for a few more weeks so we can have our homebirth!

I'll be one of those kernels at the bottom of the bag that never pops!

It is really exciting, though, that we are all getting so close and that we're all getting more and more prelabor ctx and that our bodies are getting us ready! It's so cool!!

sure sounds like you may be popping soon.

and I hope I'll be popping soon too. my Doc decided to do an internal at my appointment tuesday because I was having regular ctx on the NST. he said I was dialated 2cm and he said I could be in L&D anytime. yeah

I hope you get similar news at your next appointment
