Can this be labor?? Kelly White Ferriola Due April 8; Forked River, New Jersey 40 posts

Hi.
I'm 38 weeks and 2 days. For the passed few hours i have been getting sharp sharp shooting pains all the sudden in my lower pelvic area. Everytime i feel it my stomach moves around. It's not really staying at at regular pattern. I seen my doctors this morning and they said i was only a fingertip dialated but i'm 70-80% effaced. Could that be labor pains? or is it something else?

Could be early labor, could just be your body getting ready for labor and take another three weeks. Until they're close, consistent, and timeable, don't get too excited. Hope it's easy for you.

Yeah i'm not getting any hopes up.. i'm more thinking it's just either fake contractions or the baby moving.. i have had to go into the hospital twice to be monitored and wasn't anything each time so i'm pretty much used up on thinking it's it lol. But i was thinking if it was the baby would it be every single time i feel the sharp pains my stomach starts like rolling or whatever it is doing, could it really be the baby every single time

No, it probably is contractions, but that doesn't mean labor is starting, kwim?

It could be keep an eye on it. If it will ease your mind go in that's the best thing to do but it by no means is a sure sign of labor being dialated unfortunately. I was completely effaced and dialated to a 3 for months before anything happened. But like I said if you want to be sure just go in, I went in multiple times for nothing and I was embarrassed but felt much better knowing my baby was ok

I'm just a bit nervous about calling the doctors at all to ask them about it. I feel like they think i'm ridiculous or like they get annoyed with me. Especially since i seen them this morning and i wasn't really anything

By the time I believed it was never going to happen my water broke and I still didn't believe it was happening until I went to change into a gown and I popped all over the bathroom floor and had amniotic fluid running down my legs haha

March 7th 2012 I had a doc appointment hadn't dialated at all and was told I wouldn't go into labor on my own, set up an induction date for the following Monday and my doc went on vaca. March 8th my water broke and I had my son at 10:55 pm. I was also sent home multiple times because my blood pressure wasn't that bad and I didn't need to worry about it, when I delivered I was close to toxemia. Its your baby and your body if it makes you feel better go, you could be wrong but what if you're not? And don't worry about bugging them or looking dumb its their job to make sure you're ok and I'd pretty much garantee they've seen people way more than you.

Oh wow hope everything went ok and your baby was and is healthy. I know i shoulddn't worry bout them. i honestly am starting to dislike them a lot since i have been pregnant. I wish my water would or does break to let me know exactly that i'm in labor. Everytime i talk to them they always are like well did your water break or are you having any leakage.. doesn't even have to be like that
