So I m 36 weeks. I have been having a lot of pressure in my pelvic area, and I can feel that my baby has dropped. I'm pretty sure her head has engaged too. I have also been having these sharp pains that I was told was the cervix thinning and her head pushing down on it, and I noticed the other day that I lost the "plug." Today I have been getting these really strong period like cramps. Like strong enough to make me stop what I am doing and need to sit down. They aren't coming at regular intervals, but they are really strong. Is labor happening now? Or is this just prelabor? This is my second child, but I had to be induced with my son due to preeclampsia. I have an appointment with my doctor, but it's not until Friday.
