Please help me!!!!!

I am 39 weeks today and am having intense pains not sure if they are labor pains or not this is my 3rd baby but both of my other children were scheduled deliveries with epidural so i have never really exprinced labor. I having been having pains in my back and heaviness in my belly, I also have been having sharp pains in my vagina and pressure in my bottom not actually in my rectum but on my bottom. Does this mean that I am in early labor or just being a whiner.....

  • it sound like u might be on ur way.... as long as they are 10 min or less u are alright... this could go on for hrs or days. if the pain gets so bad u cant handle it call ur doc but try taking 2 tylonal and laying on ur left side.... or a warm shower

  • I had contractions that werent steady... some where 15 minutes apart some where 2.... I finally went to the dr and i was 4 cm! BUT I also went the day before and they were only 10 minutes apart so he sent me home. he said I could have those for days... ,maybe even weeks. I was 38 weeks when I had him. 4 days before my scheduled induction. and 10 days before my due date. If they get worse call the dr. Try to time them less than 10 minutes apart CALL
