Well, Ive been having cramping and lower back pain since yesterday morning. I tried not to think too much about it because i knew i would be going to the doctor this AM. I told him my symptoms and he checked my cervix. 2 cm dilated and mucus plug is gone! We have a csection scheduled for March 28th. (I have a heart shaped uterus). I guess i'm not sure what i'm looking for when it comes to the feeling of contractions. I would say every hour i feel lower back pain that radiates to the front. I have felt my uterus get very hard. I also have been having loose bowels since the beginning of this week. I know it could be 2 hours or 2 weeks til this baby comes, i'm just getting really anxious!!!!
