do you think I'm close?

Almost 37 weeks.
Diarrhea for the past 2 days but no virus (I went to my family doc)
BH contractions everyday for most of the day.
Lost some mucous plug today.
Feeling crampy and uncomfortable.
Some back pain on an off (not a lot)

Do you think I'm getting close to labor?
I don't care either way, as long as baby is healthy...I'm in no hurry but I'm curious!

  • I think you are close. Unfortunately, that could still mean a week or two away. I had BH for two weeks, dilated for four weeks at a four, then a five and I still didn't deliver twins until 38.5 weeks!! Good luck to you!

  • What did your doctor say about your cervix at your last exam? Those are definately signs of labor on the way, but unless your cervix is favorable you've probably got a while left :p

  • Yup! Close meaning a few hours or a few days, that is just the way it is when it comes to labor. Either way, Good Luck and Congrats!
