What could this be ? labor ? or braxton hicks contractions?

ok so i went to the doc on thrus ( the 10th) and i was 1 cm dialated but my cervix was still thick. but the thing is, is that ever since i left the doc that day at 4pm i have had really bad lower bck pain n my my lower stomack was hurting just as bad as well as my va-jj it would not go away for nothing no matter what i did. it hurt to walk or stand n even lay down, the pain was sooo bad that when i finally did get up to pee at 4am my right hip was hurting soooooo bad it had me hunched over in pain because it hurt soooo bad. but when i got up friday morning the pain wasnt that bad at first but later in the day it was just as bad as the day before. i took some tylenol last night n woke up this morning with just a lil vaginal pressure but it got worse when i went to the mall to walk around with my cousin everything from the waist dwn hurts. i have also noticed that ive been having clumps of discharge everytime i use the bathroom so im guessing its my plug coming out. is labor close

  • I never went into actual labor cause my dd was brought into the world via c-section, but my sis had those symptoms and she gave birth about 4 days or after that, but u should call your OB

  • sure sounds like it. they say walking helps the labor come on.

  • i called my doc yesterday n she was sayin its not much i could but to see if the pain goes away. she asked about cntractions but i dont really have any i just have moments where i have really sharp pains in my vaginal area n when i timed them yesterday i had two that were 2 min apart n then didnt have any any more. if it was labor i wouldnt feel the baby move would i because she still moves through all the pain im having.
