Ok, so this part is TMI....before the last week or so, I was only going #2 like once a week, maybe twice. The past 3 days iv'e gone every morning. My nose has been running like crazy the past 2 or 3 days. My back feels like it's ready to give out. I feel like I could eat a cow. And my braxton hicks have increased a lot. But I don't have any increase in discharge, no bloody show....no loss of the mucous plug (that I noticed anyways) So my question is how did you guys feel in the week or days before delivery? I know everyone differs in symptoms....but did anyone feel like this before? BTW- I am 34 weeks. I delivered my last daughter (induced) at 37 wks.

 I don't really remember with my last 2 but this time around I am changing a lot. I am 36- 37 weeks Sunday and have started getting tons of Bh, lost my mucus plug last week, harder time sleeping, peeing more change in discharge, going poop 4-5 times a day instead of my normal once ect.

 I don't know how long before baby gets here but it seems my body is getting ready. Whatever that means right:-) ha

 We will see

Four days before I delivered I felt my daughter drop head down and it felt like i was walking with a bowling ball in between my legs.  And then two days before my mucus plug came out but that was it.  And the day before I went into labor I was having period like cramps but nothing else.  I went to bed and when I went to the bathroomthe following morning there was a little blood.  My docs told me to take a bath and when i did my water broke and my lower back started to hurt.....I had back contractions only.

 With my 2nd I had only a little bit of back pain. and then that night i woke up with little cramps thought i had to go the potty.. but no. So i went back to sleep. Then next day was my doc app. and she said i was already 4cm. and i was in active labor.. To go right to the birthing center.. And when i was walking there i was trying to make my water break.. but kinda squating walking i was walking ..lol it looked so funny! I was laughing the whole time, and my mom about wet her pants laughing

I don't usually notice any real changes except for being super uncomfortable generally.
