Hey everyone!! I've made it to 33 weeks! yay! Weird stuff is happening, though...... I've had some contractions on and off, and sometimes they go on for hours. I remember I had that happen with my last pregnany, no big deal. But, to add to it, I've had this intense pushing sensation!!!! I'm not sure if I'm dilated at all, but I do know my cervix is very soft....almost mush. I've been bearing down with all my might for 10 minutes at a time...and then the urge just stops. If I lay on my left side, the sensation usually stops and I don't get any more contractions.... but its usually such an intense urge that changing my position is the last thing on my mind.<br>
Has anyone had this happen?????

It is way too early for contractions (more than bhx, that is), and I have no idea about this need to bear down, but I think you should call your care provider if you have one. I would be pretty concerned about preterm labor if I had your symptoms. It could just be that your baby's head is low and posterior, but I think you should have it checked out.

I second that opinion. With 7 more weeks to go, if your cervix is mush <b>now</b>, you do not need to be pushing. And the fact that you are tells me your baby may end up in a NICU somewhere if it isn't stopped. This is not good at 33 weeks. Please check with your care provider. This is way too early to be doing this....
