what is going on 'down there'?! adult content

Sometimes when I flex to pee I feel pressure... Almost like when ur tampon is coming out on its own... But much higher... And also my outer 'lips' are tender to the touch. A week ago I was 2cm and 70%... I'm 38 weeks... And have been having a LOT of BH and so much discharge I have to wear a pad... What does this mean? (I know what the 2cm and all that means... Just the other stuff I want to know)

  • It means that you are probably getting close to labor. The discharge if it is slimy could be your mucus plug.

  • It is probably a combination of extra blood flow and the baby getting into position that is causing the pressure and the tenderness. I had copious discharge like that, too, and I had to graduate from a panty liner to a maxi pad around 36 weeks. It all sounds very normal. Hang in there, mama, you're in the home stretch!!

  • sounds like your cervix is softening and your losing your mucus plug.
