Signs of early labor at 36 weeks?
I am 36 weeks + 4 days pregnant. I had an appt yesteday with my ob I was almost a centimeter dilated and 50% thinned out. I have been having cramping really bad for about 4 or 5 hours now. I thought it could be just cramping from a bladder infection I have had through out my whole pregnancy (and on a anit-biotic) I took two pills instead of one. I'm also anemic, so I ate some steak and green beans to help me feel better. Then took a warm bath. About an hour ish ago. Also all day I've had a bit of diarrea. Well, the cramps haven't gone away. Contractions I have recorded go..
12:16, 12:59, 1:50, 2:11, so far. I am still recording. Im also now feeling just a little nauseaus and sweaty hot. Are these signs of early labor? Or what?
Also, I had my daughter at 36 weeks + 4days, 4 days after I was told I was 1 cm dilated and 80% thinned out.
35 minutes ago - 4 days left to answer.

  • I would call your doctor, but I had cramping after they checked to see if I was dilated a week ago. So that could be why... however you wouldnt be having contractions because of it. They want you to wait til you are closer together like 5mins apart to go to the hospital.
