I know I ask alot of questions, but this is my first pregnancy and I'm confused. Plus my doctors suck!

I'm 38 weeks, I'm already 4cm and 80% effaced.I've been dilated for almost 3 weeks and last week my Doc said my sac was bulging. I've been having alot of abdominal cramping today and not sure if I just started to loose my mucus plug last night or just now noticing that I'm loosing it. I know there's no accurate time of when I'm going to go in labor, but what do you guys think?

  • I think it's a good possibility!! Babies tend to take their time, so unfortunately its a waiting game. It does sound like you will probably have the baby in the next few days tho! Good luck!

  • You could go at any time.. time the pains.. when they start to get to 7 minutes apart or your water breaks.. get to the doctor. If you have lost your mucus plug, try NOT to take a warm bath, or have sex without consulting your doctor because it could lead to infection.
