I feel like my contractions are getting closer and turning into the real deal right now.. Not for sure.. But my vagina area is very irritated and itchy and sore ughh and I'd love any advice for relief before I go in (if I do) do that it won't be one more annoyance when I'm in pain. Help appreciated!

you sure you don't have a yeast infection?
i've never felt labor but i've heard some women on here say their vagina got very irritated at the end of pregnancy because of all the weight of baby and extra blood flow.

a warm bath with a little bit of baking soda can help with irritation and itch. it's not abnormal to have increased blood flow along your vaginal lips during pregnancy and labor so perhaps a cool moist cloth would help with hot and inflamed tissue.
