My due date is in 3 days. However, I have already lost my mucus plug and the doc said that I was 1 cm dilated last week. Since then I have been having some pretty painful contractions. They are now painful enough that it is starting to affect my sleeping pattern. I have not had a full nights sleep in about 2-3 days. I have tried to discussing the matter w/ my doc over the phone but she claims that this is completely normal and that I should just wait things out but I can no longer stand the constant nagging pain. Is this normal and should I take the doc's advice?Answer Question
Yes, it is normal.
You have to wait it out, what else can you do?
Try to work on getting comfortable, distracted, give yourself naps.
You might still be pregnant a couple of weeks from now, or have the baby in a few hours from now...
Do what you can to enjoy this time.
