You know that pain sometimes when you lay down and your back starts throbbing like a burning feeling and your inner thighs feel like they're being pushed apart and your pelvis bone hurts just about as much as your back after baby drops? well im having that even after etting out of bed and walking around and now my irregular contractions are getting stronger and im getting heavy menstraul cramping with them... ive had pain similar to this that subsided but this just ISNT going away.. could it be just the baby dropping some more or are these possible labor symptoms? please help!! 37 weeks 5 days btw first baby!Answer Question

It sounds like labor babe. I wouldn't wait to call your Dr. or Midwife though. I've read a lot from other moms on here who say what they thought were the irregular Braxton Hicks contractions, were actually true labor.

It could be labor. Many women do not notice their bloody show (if they even have any) and it is quite possible for labor to start without your water breaking. Babies are born in their intact amniotic sacs all the time in other countries (not here because docs are too adamant that the sac *needs to be broken*). The term for this is called being born en caul and it is considered to be very good luck in many cultures. Here's a link to a youtube video of a woman giving birth to a baby still in the intact amniotic sac. Good luck mama!

Thats what I have been told also but if I felt like I was in labor I would have my Midwife check me to see whats going on. Either that or I'd start timing my contractions and as soon as they got regular I would call.
