  • You always want everything fast now( everybody not just you). Just hang in there. Your baby will be here before you know it.

  • I had the same feeling with my second pregnancy. I went into premature labor with my oldest at 28 and a half weeks. I was lucky, there were able to stop the labor and I was put on bed rest. I eventually gave birth at exactly 36 weeks.

    When I got pregnant the second time, I was very careful. I, too, was scared, but I just did everything I could to prevent premature labor. I drank lots of water, I ate healthy and I propped me feet up a lot and got lots of rest. I went to the doctor more frequently as he requested. I went every two weeks starting at 25 weeks.
    I gave birth to my little guy at 37 weeks, 2 days.

    I think what you are feeling is natural, but just take care of yourself and know that you are doing all you are doing to prevent it.

  • I thought for sure I was going to be really late with my 1st baby, and even when I went into labor at 36.5 wks I was in denial (thinking it was just BH contractions) but he was born at 37wk 0days!!
    With all 3 pregnancies after that I was absolutely convinced that I would go early and I went over LoL so I was wrong every time!!

  • i feel like i could go any day now. i am already 3 cm at 34 wks and have been having contractions since i was like 24 wks. i delivered at 35 wks last time so i just take it one day at a time.
