Second pregnancy and belly drops tara0510 Due March 3; Japan 1 posts

I am almost 37 weeks and 3 days ago dr said my baby boy has dropped. I lost my mucus plug a few weeks ago also. I have just know experienced pressure in my butt.... but worst of all sharp throbbing pain in my back and feeling the babys movements really low and hiccups in my butt! Hoping to go into labor soon but dr doesnt want me to have him no sooner than 39 weeks. I dont know if I can hold on that long. My anxiety is at its highest point and Its getting hard to roll side to side and get up out of bed and bend down! any thoughts?

Just take it easy. Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of water. If baby refuses to wait, then he refuses to wait. There's not much you can really do either way, but if you rest as much as possible and keep things calm and stress free (as much as that's possible) then it might help.
