  • It sounds to me like you are efacing in preperation for birth.
    Efacing is the cervix thinning and streatching.

    SEE YOUR DOC to be sure, but I bet you are in labor before you hit 40 weeks :)

  • It could just be you starting to dialate. Some people can feel it. Or the baby is moving down and you are feeling alot more pressure. I would think you will probably go early. But Id say you have a couple weeks left.
