So, I am now 39 weeks pregnant today, first baby. A couple weeks ago I thought I lost part of my mucous plug, but nothing more has came out... so I am not sure thats what it was... It looked like boogers when you have a cold. I have horrible cramps daily. All I want to do is sleep and eat...

But what I want to know... why do I keep feeling like he is trying to claw his way out of my uterus. It feels like he is literally digging down to pop my bag and come out. IT HURTS... lol

My due date is on the first... I hope I do not go over....

Any advice for me ladies?

  • Hmmm...are you sure you aren't in labor? That's how my daughter felt when her labor started.
