KellynJ - July 6

okay, i've been having regular bh contractions throughout my pregnancy. And all day today i've been feeling I gotta go number2, kinda constapation feeling. Then after I had s_x i've been getting manstural feeling cramps and presure on my va___a.(tmi, but hay its pregnancy)and presure around my ribs. Im 37wks and 5dys, and i am ready to have this baby.. but nothing like regular contracions, when I walk it doesnt go away just more presure, could this be it, or is it just prepareing my body for the real labor? I hope its here. anyone else feel the same thing?

Well if you are in labor then so am I. You described every thing that i have been feeling. I tried having s_x with dh Tuesday I think and it was so much pressure and almost hurt to have s_x. I had lots of menstral type cramps yesterday and today and I too feel like I have to go #2 Well I did once or twice and had soft stools. Sorry TMI. I have rib pressure same as you almost to the T.

PS I am 37 weeks 2 days along. How far dilated/effaced are you/were you at your last appointment. I go in tomorrow and I am anxious to see if I have made progress from last week. (50% effaced and 1 cm dilated)

KellynJ I understand your frustration. I have had bh contractions all along and they are starting to hurt get uncomfortable etc, but I don't know anymore. I am frustrated because my water broke with my first and I can't remmeber what the first few contractions felt like before they got strong. My mom walked around in labor with my brother all day not real sure if it was it or not and then almost didn't make it to the hospital..grrrrr labor is frustrating.
