  • How far along are you? Does it feel like pressure or actual pain? Do you feel like you need to poop? When in doubt, call your doc/midwife!

  • It could be the start of labor. Probably best to call your doc/midwife to be safe. They'll let you know if you need to come in to be checked or if it could be something else.

    Good luck!

  • It just sounds like your body is gearing up for labor but that doesn't necessarily mean that labor is imminent. I'd take a warm bath with some epsom salts, do some yoga, go to a chiropractor tomorrow and get adjusted but I wouldn't go to the hospital yet. Maybe give your care provider a heads up but it sounds pretty early to be getting too excited.
