So, this is my first. I'm 37 weeks today. I've been having rather painful sporadic contractions for awhile and it has just, naturally, gotten me thinking about baby's arrival. So, I have two questions. They might seem a little stupid, so my apologies lol.
Questions 1: I know some women go into labor and then have to have their water broken by the doctor. What causes this? Is it just baby's position or something? What are the chances of that happening?
Question 2: I know nesting is supposedly a sign of oncoming labor, and some things online seem to make it pretty extreme. Almost like it causes complete OCD right before labor. Well, is there the possibility of just pre-nesting, or is it not always as dramatic as some things I've read make it out to be? I have very little sleep lately and I'm exhausted, but all I can think about is different things I want to do around the house. I've been doing them slowly, almost anally too, but it isn't really this overwhelming urge I have to give in to. It's more of my brain has just decided to start preparing things.
Thanks in advance.
