I'm going to buy some of the evening Primrose oil tablets tomorrow so they hopefully help soften me up for my sweep next week! Can't believe in 13days or maybe even less ill have a baby in the house again! Its Been nearly 7yrs since our last :-D can't wait to meet my little girl
Im 38 weeks as well and fortunately I haven't went through any contractions. I just pee ALOT now. I need help to get up and I gained 50lbs or more. In your case your body is just giving you signs that your getting ready to give birth sooner than you think! Ohhh how much it ***** sometimes huh.....lol Congrats ..... let the countdown begin!
I've been having contractions for weeks now but they definitely have dramatically increased in the last 2 weeks, my due date was yesterday.... I'm trying everything I can! Midwife promised I won't be pregnant forever haha, she was able to do a partial membrane sweep in the office yesterday so I'm really hoping it works....soon!! @Gigi haha the getting up is hilarious, my husband makes beeping noises when I'm trying to move like a school bus backing up...its pretty comical how our bodies seem to totally abandon us right before we accomplish the most amazing feat on the planet, pushing a human being out!!!
Lol. @lizzyspoon ... I agree... that's why I'm not thinking of any mire kids anytime soon. ..I'll be vfine with ny 2 girls!
My contractions have been consistent but my baby is posterior which is making this phase of labor a pain. Mon contractions were 20 mins apart. Tues 15 mins today 6 mins but more bk pain and menstrual cramping. I feel like I can't believe my body cause im expecting a lot of pain . Im so frustrated! So I feel you. Im probably going to go to the hospital anyway just to see if in dilated yet. I was crying last night because im so frustrated from not knowing what it going on with my body. And how come its not as painful as I read it to be.i feel so pressured and discouraged that things are happening so slow.
Well I had some progress this morning! I lost my plug so that's something :-D good luck everyone xx
I'm glad in a way I'm not the only one going through this. I've got 8 days left and this has been going on for me since week 34. I can handle everything about pregnancy except the never ending contractions with nothing to show for it. Good luck. Glad you lost your mucus plug. Hopefully not to much longer.
