I'm seriously convinced it is
So, I planned a home birth but I'm at 36 weeks, making it a no-go, but I'm pretty sure I started going into early labor or at least will not finish the week.
With my DD I woke up in the morning with menstrual cramps, and at 5am this morning I woke up with killer cramps + had the runs twice before I hobbled into bed. The cramps were not regular; coming in waves, hurting like HELL but not getting worse..it was like one little contraction/cramp that hurt, and one HUGE one directly after that. Midwife checked me and the baby is in my pelvis and I'm effaced but not dilated yet.
I ended up taking some false unicorn which stopped cramps, but than tehy sent me home with plenty of bed rest [my DD is at her Grandparents today, and maybe the rest of the week depending on how I feel] and I'm still have SHARP cramps and pains all day on/off.
I just, I feel like this baby might be coming this week.
What do you guys think? Does this sound like early labor? I lost parts of my mucus plus burst of energy I had all morning yesterday I'm thinking I could be a day or two away.
Basically now, I'm 100% miserable and in on/off pain
happy momma to DD 8/07 and DS 6/10
