**LABOR SOON???**37 Weeks Tomorrow FTM
Last night I didn't sleep at all due to contractions on my lower abdomen; & I've been having loose bowel movements, & feel like I'm coming down with the flu.
Baby head was downward last week, could this mean I'm going into labor soon?

Any changes?
I am trying to figure out what is going on myself. For the last 3 days I have been having terrible back pain on and off, and it feels like menstral cramps sometimes. I am only in my 34 week. I am so uncomfortable. Sometimes I can't sit or stand. I have tried soaking in the tub, back rubs. I just can't seem to make these pains go away. I am going to my obgyn
After today to get checked out to make sure I am not going into early labour.
Please let me know how ÿou are doing.

Claudia, Sounds like early signs, just make sure you time everything, with being 37 weeks it is very possible. With my second I went into labor with her at 38 weeks.
Cutter, let us know what your doc says, since your not that far. If its not as strong all the time it could be just bracks hics but I always go to doc to make sure.
Hope everything goes well.

I just saw my obgyn. She says that i am starting to move to the next step. My cervix is thinning. It is still closed and I am not dilating. So that is good news.
She thinking I am just having a strong reaction to the proglandin hormones and that is what is causing all the pain back, etc... Nothing to worry about. Baby is doing good, his head is down and his heart rate was 164.
She is going to keep a close eye on me just to make sure things don't change too quickly.

I'm 2cm dilated & 75% thinned out!(:
She told me to do a lot of walking, to make things move along smoother(:
Hopefully he will be here next week(:
