Who's full term? What new symptoms do you have? What symptoms have gone away since becoming full term or within the last few weeks/days? I have had way more mucus since losing my plug. My heart burn went away (thank God). My back ache has gotten worst! Contractions come more regularly now and insomnia is definitely at its worst.
I am 38+5. I have Heartburn at night, back pain, hip pain everyonce in a while, pee alot, and more discharge. But I am having trouble starting to dialate and my dr said if Im not dialating by the 27th she wants me to be induced a week after my due date which is New Years Eve. Im really nervous and scared and I dont feel comfy with going over due...
Last time I was checked three weeks ago I wasn't dilated at all! I was kinda bummed. But I think that has changed because of the amount of discharge I have now. Maybe its the same for you. I hope you can go into labor naturally. You should try some ginger or ginger chews for the heart burn. You can find them at Trader Joes. They don't taste that bad.
Ive had very strange sensations in my nether regions lol like i need to fanny fart and the pressure makes me feel like my foof is stretching!! Ive been getting pain in my lower stomach and lots more discharge (noticed a slightly bloody tinge to it tonight).... my heartburn hasnt gone away :( its not there during the day any more but once i go bed its horrendous!
Try ginger tea. Yes, I have been drinking Red Raspberry Leaf Tea since 34 weeks and its supposed to help you tone your uterus for a shorter easier labor. Not with dilation however. Try primrose oil for softening your cervix. I'm taking those also.
38 weeks and 3 days... I've been having to pee every single time I get up to do something and almost peed myself at the mall today! Super embarrassing! I've been feeling these weird cramps down there. It almost feels like a sharp cut or something. Sometimes makes me jump because it's a sudden pain. And I'm not too sure on contractions. Last time I was checked (37 weeks) I was only 1 cm dilated. And lord knows I've been active!
