I am 38 weeks and 2 days and my baby has finally dropped today .I think I went to the bathroom 15 times today. I have this feeling though I will be late but who knows. I wish labor is around the corner I am getting anxious to have my little girl>

I'm in my 37th week too. During the rest of my pregnancy I always thought I would be late, but now I don't know what to think. I lost my plug on Saturday, I can feel baby's head against my pelvic bone, so now I waddle when I walk, and I've been getting what feels like menstrual cramping on and off for about a 1/2 hour at a time. I don't know if this means he'll be ready to come out very soon or if this is just what all preggos experience during this time. I know I am expected to become increasingly uncomfortable, but I was thinking more along the lines of back pain and swelling. Also the cramping is low down, and I've read that contractions start at the top of the uterus and radiate down throughout the belly and back, so I don't think I'm experiencing false labor... Or is it?

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow. I've been prepared for baby to come ever since I got off of bedrest this past Saturday. It seems like every little sign gets your hopes up thinking this might be it! I had all kinds of contractions Monday night/Tuesday morning--painful ones, too. Then on Tuesday I was pa__sing blobs of mucus (no blood tinging though), but I've hardly had any contractions and no mucus since then. So I'm like okay, are we getting ready or not? To make matters worse I have 3 people calling me 2 or 3 times I day to see if I've went into labor yet. I know they mean well, but it gets monotonous. With my last baby I did not have any prelude signs of labor besides increased BH contractions. I didn't pa__s any mucus or anything and I was only dilated to 1 cm at my appt. the day before I had him...so i know labor can come at anytime even without all the signs, but waiting is torture.

I am in my 37th week too. How do you guys know if your baby has dropped. I think my baby has, But there is no way i can be sure except my doctor telling me that, and my appt. is not due until next week. I havent lost any mucus plug as yet. I wipe everytime I pee hoping to find something, but :-( But I have been having sharp pains along the walls of my v____a. Has anybody been having this? I read somewhere that it could be due to the cervix dilating. I hope it is that.
