Question about labor

This morning I went and peed and when I wiped I had some of the mucus plug on the toilet paper. Well then all day I have had more pressure and feel very crampy. My stomach has been tightening so I am assuming they are contractions, I also dont feel very good I cant eat alot. Do you think I am in labor or it could soon be? I am 35 weeks and 4 days.

  • It is possible.A sure sign is when your back starts to hurt.You'll know it when it happens.I still think you should let your o/b know what is happening.

  • Yes drinking water. Could the pain be from me dilating? The contractions hurt but they aint close together. I am having pains in my back and in my stomach.

  • Drink water and lay on your left side. If the contractions do not subside, time them. Call your OB/GYN after timing a couple of contractions. Contractions should be a consistent time apart. I am betting the doctor is going to want you to be monitored so I would pack a bag to take to the hospital. I had my son at 35 weeks. He went straight to the NICU, so don't hesitate to go to the hospital. Your baby may be ready to come out.
