38 weeks and no contractions or anything yet? S Ivy Due February 27; USA 40 posts

Has anyone been 38 weeks and not had any contractions, bleeding, leaking or anything at all? Is it normal? MY OB isnt much concerned, just thought that I should have had braxton hicks or something by now?

Its pretty normal since your not full term yet. Some women have absolutely no signs until they go into labor.

When I was 38 weeks with my son, nothing was happening. I went over due and had to be induced. :) good luck! doesn't mean nothing won't happen to you though. Its normal.

you still have 2 weeks left. I had prelabor for 3 weeks and was miserable... delivered exactly on my due date :)

How can you be due the 28th of Feb and be 38 weeks?? I am due the day after you and I am 36w 5d right now.

With my daughter nothing happened until I was 39w 3 days. I had back pain for like an hour, my water broke when I was walking through the living room , and Kailyn was born about 2 hours later. Came out of nowhere fast!

Uhm you can't be 38 weeks yet, I am and I'm due 12 days before you. But.... I am showing no signs of labor being soon. My cervix is soft and thinned out though. That's all.

I didn't feel a thing. I was induced at 40 weeks..and even then.. I wasn't in any pain until my water was broken 12 hours later. thats when I started feeling my contractions.

Thank you reaper and every else for the reassuring comments, Ill try not to worry for another 2 weeks, just dont want to be induced or need a c section.
