39 weeks pregnant....please help! adult content

Yesterday morning i was having very strong irregular contractions, the past 3 days Ive had awful back pain too, well my hubby & I went in to get checked yesterday, contractions were weak & irregular by then, I was checked and was 2cm, high and posterior, the nurse had us walk the maternity ward for an hr then check me again. Still 2cm. She sent me home & said to try sex....so we did, I didn't br to clean up & there was stringy mucous with brown & pink streaks, was it m bloody show or just my cervix from the sex? After this I was on the couch having quite strong contractionsvever 3-5 minutes lasting 30-40 seconds, so i switched positions, went pee & walked upstairs and I was still getting them, so i went to bed. havent had them yet today. If i was my bloody show does that mean labor is close? i due in 6 days and i know my edd is correct because this is a honeymoon baby, and we didn't have sex until then. Any insight?

  • it sounds like your body is gearing up for it.

    I am unable to go into labor unless my water breaks. My water only ever broke on it's own once, and then they had to RE BREAK it, because I had a fore bag. It sounds like you are going through what I went through. If you are contracting off and on, and are really uncomfortable, tell your doctor.

  • It was probably from having your cervix checked, not from show or from the sex.

    You're almost there, though, mamma. Just let it happen when it's gonna happen. YOU WILL NOT BE PREGNANT FOREVER! I promise :)
