early labor...updated

I think I might be in early labor. I'm due the 22nd which is in 11 days and I was 3-4 cm dilated and 70% effaced yesterday at my appt. I've been pretty uncomfortable since I woke up at 6 am. I've been having low, menstrual-like cramps and contractions but they aren't that close yet they have been getting stronger though. I'm losing some of my mucus plug and my back is achy and it hurts like a b..I'm not at the point that I think I need to go to the hospital but part of that is because I don't wanna go at all just to get sent home. Oh well, guess ill try to get some sleep and see what happens.

FALSE ALARM...well unless it picks back up again later. Idk though I'm thinking I may make it to due date.

 Whatever you do, if you feel like you have to go poo and every time you push nothing happens...get your butt to the hospital, unless you're planning on having a home birth.

Get someone to put pressure on your hips and lower back. That will help the back pain. Good luck!
