OK.. SO i am 39 weeks pregnant, with a baby boy, on top of that, i am not dilated at all.. i know.. depressing. any way.. so i work 8 hours a day, and i am on my feet somewhere near atleast 12 hours a day, all day today when i was standing up my stomache was harder then a rock., on top of that, i feel ALOT of pressure and i have been having diareah for the past 5 days, tmi i know.. any way i was wondering if this has happened to any one else? the tighting in the stomach, im FAIRLY sure that its Braxton hicks, but, i dont know for sure.. and on top of that, i forgot to mention that it feels like my period is coming, and it sometimes feels like something is trying to come out of me, like right before your period starts and the blood wants to run down.. yea, that feeling. oh and at my dr. appt yesterday that dr done a cervix check, said "oh yeah, you can feel the head, but your not dilated at all.."how does that work?

He probably meant he could feel the pressure of the head pushing down but ur cervix is not open.
How far apart are the contractions?

like i said, there not really timeable, they hit for about 5 seconds, long enuf to stop me dead in my tracks, then they might happen again in 3 minutes, or 10 minutes, sometimes 5 a hour real close together then not again for 2 hours..

The OP didn't say that. It only said that your stomach has been hard all day.
But It does sound like early labor. I'd time the contractions on a piece of paper and see if they get constant. Once they are about 5 min apart for an hour I'd go in.
Good luck and labor dust to you!
