35 wks preg... preterm labor or normal symptoms?

I will be 35 weeks tomorrow. Lately, I have been having a little bit more discharge - whitish/yellow- nothing abnormal in color, just an increased amount. The last two days I have had stomach pain- almost like cramps but just all over my belly. When I get the cramping sensation, my belly doesn't get hard like it would with a braxton hicks contractions which I have been having for about 2 months now. My baby has been really active. I have had some mid pack pain but that isn't too abnormal for me since I have always dealt with it due to poor posture though it does seem like its been a little more painful lately.

Are these normal symptoms for being 35 weeks pregnant? Everyone who is pregnant knows that it is so easy to worry about every little thing, lol...

  • I think it's pretty normal to have some extra discharge. And as far as the back pain, well, you're pregnant, so that's normal. With my first daughter, I went into pre-term labor in my 7th month. (I don't remember the exact number of weeks anymore) Anyway, I had a lot of contractions all the time, and was dialated to 3 centimeters. I had to go on complete bedrest, and I managed to stay pregnant into my 38th week. (I amazed the doctors!) The best way to find out is to have a non stress test done, and check to see if your dialated. Otherwise, it's probably just BH. If your worried, I would just call the doctor.
