  • pretty close :) I recommend walking! Gravity will work well if her head is that far down and you're getting cramps.

    best of luck!

  • there is no way to tell if labor is coming soon until you actually go into labor. i thought for sure i was in labor at 37 weeks but it was just cramps and contractions and he didn't come out until 41 weeks. didn't mean to be discouraging, just take these last few moments to rest up, i wish i would have cuz i had no idea how tired i would be once the baby arrived.

  • I thought I was in labor the last 3 weeks of my pregnancy lol I was 1cm for about a month then made it to 2 which I was only at 2 for about a week then I was induced. I had a lot of what they say was braxton hicks contractions but they sure felt like the real thing they were so bad I couldn't catch my breath but then after an hour or so they would stop and come back later. I had pain in my back as well which turned out to be nothing. When I went to the hospital the night before my daughter was born I had a lot of discharge which may have been my mucus plug and I was having contractions and they made me walk the halls of the hospital so thats what I would recommend as well. You could be having back labor so if you're worried about it you could always call ur doc or go to the hospital. Good luck hope you get to see your baby soon. :)
