rash/labor
I found a red/tender rash under my boob. anybody else get a rash in the 3rd trimester? .....what does labor feel like in the beginning? This is my first pregnancy so I really dont know what to expect. I thought I should expect pain automatically but I have a high pain tolerance and the pain I've felt isnt bad. So far I'm feeling lightning, fatigue nausea cramping from my back into my vagina pressure from my baby pushing down and hot flashes.. am I going into labor or just dilating more? And another thing.. is it just me or does anybody else get annoyed by their husband moving in bed to turn over or whatever he moves for? Ugh!!!

Is your rash from your bra? Or maybe from heat? Maybe it's rubbing and irritating your skin you can try to use a different size or destine even baby powder helps with sweat...

As for labor time your pain... How far apart is the pain... Even If you have a high pain tolerance just time when u get the pain and for how long it hurts for. If you have the pain 10 mins apart u r in early labor but when you get to about 6-4 mins apart that's when u need to go into l n d the rule is 4-1-1 (4 minutes apart for about 1 minute for one hour! ) if u feel them getting closer or stronger ur in labor of course if your water breaks u need to go to lnd or if u start bleeding (more then spotting) you do sound like ur in labor but it could be the early part unless ur already at the 4-1-1  then go in. If they aren't closer or stronger then it's just false labor or like u said your dialating some. If u change positions and the pain stops its most likely false labor again!

Lastly yes any movement is annoying in bed! Especially it takes me forever to fall asleep and then hubby moves and I'm up again! From the bed moving to stealing blankets to changing positions I just want to scream!

Lol my husband drives me crazy at bedtime! I didnt think about heat or sweat causing the rash.. That could be it my bras feel fine.. Forgot to ask my doctor about it today because we were so busy talking about labor and dilating.. I have dilated to 3 cm 90% effacing mucus plug came out this morning and baby's head is in my vagina! So it wont be long. He also said I was in labor last night according to what I told him but I think it was just early... Not really feeling any pain from anything. the lightning is the most I've felt besides the crampingand neither of those really hurt at all.. That makes me wonder if I'll know besides my water breaking when to go to the hospital or call my mom to come up..  Everytime I call my dr about contractions they say it's just braxton hicks or I dont sound like I'm in labor so just rest takw a shower
