1 Bump

Im 39 weeks pregnant, and Im having alot of cramping in my lower abdomen and pressure in my butt.. I have no idea whats going on but Ive been losing my mucus plug over the past few days too.

Its really uncomfortable to bend down, I had to have my boyfriend help me get dressed because I couldn't bend down to get my clothes.. or even put my underwear on for that matter :S Does that mean the baby is like right there and ready to come out or maybe the start of labor.. I am 2 centimeters and I was told that Monday night when I went in the hospital for pain.

  • I had a lot of back pan with my daughter when I went into labor. With you being so close I would go right down to L&D. It could be labor, it could not be. Better safe then sorry. Good Luck and congrats.

  • Start keeping track of contractions because it sounds like your starting labor.
