Did anyone else....

Did anyone feel any changes before they went into labor? I took a nap and when I woke up for some reason my belly feels lower then before and something about it just feels different. I am 40 weeks and 1 day. Maybe it's just the anticipation of wanting my baby here but i am hoping it might be more.

  • Contractions woke me up, so I wasn't thinking about my belly being lower than before.

  • Oh, good, I'm not the only one who thought they'd peed themselves! I had no inkling, other than my water breaking. Even then, it took 14 hours for me to figure it out!!

  • I just felt crampy...and was slightly disoriented.

    Also, I felt like I had to poop..but that was nothing new. considering I hadn't pooped in like 3 weeks, lol.

  • i have the same question as you, i should know considering this is #4 for me and im 37weeks, but i woke up yesterday morning and i just felt completely different, and after my "morning pee" i noticed i lost my mucus plug... so im really curious as to why i feel sooo different, i feel smaller, and seem to have more energy... whats going on??? let me know, PLEASE!!! :D
