38 weeks and feelin funky...

I am 38 weeks today, a little over a week ago I was 3cm dilated and 50% effaced. I have been having regular braxton hicks/cramping/etc. just about every day. Today I have an increased fluid with some mucus discharge, I feel "off" or "funky" between that, some contractions and this pain/fluttering like where my cervix is. Anyone else feel like this? Could this be early labor? Or just another sign my body's prepping.

  • I had these symptoms in my last pregnancy and my water was leaking not broken. But I was in labor contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. So if you can time the contractions 2-3 minutes apart I would say it is active labor but if not wait until contractions are 2-3 minutes aprart. But you could always just call the dr anyway to be on the safe side.
