getting uncomfortable.. anyone else?

So I am 37 weeks, measuring 38 weeks, the baby has dropped. I am only 70% effaced, but not dialated. I go to the doc again tomorrow. I'm just at the point where I'm totally uncomfortable and I want my body back! I
m not even having any contractions! Just a few braxton hicks here and there.. Anyone else feeling the same way?

  • That's exactly how I feel tomorrow I will be 38 wks. I have a burning feeling in pelvis sometimes & hard to walk at times. I am not doing half the stuff other people are & I worry that my baby isn't being normal. I'm due on April 27 & I feel like it is never going to end. My first 2 pregnancies I didn't even know I was pregnant until I had them & it was a whole lot easier than this, I think. Best of luck to you.

  • I will be 38 weeks tom. & I feel the same. I am just so ready to have her. At my 36 week appt. I was like 1/2 cm dilated and I also havent had any contractions except a couple BH. It sucks being so close and feeling like your body is no where near ready to give birth. I'm sore, achy, & starting to be miserable. Anyways Good Luck to everyone and hope you all have a safe & easy delivery!!!
