I know a lot of you have already been crampy but I haven't felt ANYTHING yet and I'm 40+3. So today I was fixing dinner and going about my business and I'm definitely starting to get that "I'm getting my period" sensation. : Plus it seems that there is a LOT more mucus coming out, sorry TMI! Just wanted to share, I"m so excited! Now I know this could still mean nothing, but for not having ANYTHING going on, I'm glad to at least have SOMETHING.

I've been getting the "I feel like crap" stuff lately. Hopefully all this something will do SOMETHING for us!

Sara, I hope things pick up for you! That is so exciting...:

I am crampy today...but have been since last week so it could be nothing as usual.

I hope yours are the real deal or progress to it in the next day or so. Keep us posted!

Sara--This could definitely be the start of something!!! For about a full day before I went into labor with my last two I had those cramps!!!

Actually it was the sex that kicked my last two labors into gear...

See? I need some of this. Don't really want some of this...but need some of this. Dp is not a willing participant tho...darn dp. I'm 'bout ready to force him since he keeps asking if I'm having the baby "tonight"..."if you only had the baby tonight...."...."when do you think you're having the baby?"

Want the baby out? Then I say he should do his part!! :

Well, I'm sure my DP would be more than willing, seeing as how he's probably not getting any for at least a couple of months!

I'm 38weeks today and have been feeling crampy for the last week and a half or so. I wouldn't mind the babe a little early, but I'm in no rush.

The last two days I have had this I'm getting my period feeling and I wish something would happen, I hate that pre period feeling when it's for my period but I am not liking it even more before having a baby because i'm more excited about having a baby!

I started feeling some cramping at 36 weeks and now I'm feeling a lot of pinching in my cervix, especially when I'm standing. I'll be 38 weeks on Monday. This is my first baby, so I'm not sure if I should read into it or not. Any thoughts? Thanks!
