  • Holy cow....why did you do that? Labor starts by itself when the baby is ready to come. Yikes!!!! Time to call the Doctor.

  • Im 38 weeks and I have no clue. My doctor didnt check last time. I lost my mucus plug last week and had my burst of energy. I also have dropped alot and have tons of pressure.

  • The only thing I can say is you shouldn't have done that. Anyway get some water and lay down and try to relax. It may be labor it may be your tummy.

  • hey jen,
    If you are having strong contractions and feeling pressure, go ahead an give your doc a page. If they are regular, every five minutes or so, it may be worth a trip to the hospital maternity floor to check to see if you are laboring.

    Good luck mama. :)
