  • so what is the final due date? they sould be able to know, iv never heard of due dates switching 2 mos apart. my first u/s my due date was 1/14/08 then went to 1/23 but i had her on the 16th, thats a big gap. u/s are not the most acurate...i would go in. how far appart are they now?

  • It's normal for you to have soreness and contractions. What ends up happening is that the farther you are to your due-date the more braxton hicks you will get. And sometimes you will feel so bruised and ache because of the pressure from your weight gain because of the baby putting pressure on you.And yes.... boy oh boy will a nice hot! shower work! I used to take really hot showers to help the pain that I had.Good luck, also you might have sharp stabbing pains in the vaginal area once you get closer to your due date it happen-to me I couldn't even walk.It was soo horrible it feels like a knife! Not to scare you but some woman get them and I was one of them.It's because your pelvis dilates opens like 2-3 cm before your due-date preparing activating as I call it lol.

  • back labor can be an indication of a baby with ther face up! It will be fine, but the labor will be more intence!
