I'm convinced my body is preparing for labor. I've been crampy as hell the past four days , i have a unsettled feeling throughout my body, i am already 1cm dilated, and my tummy has been going CRAZY . i feel queasy and have barely any appetite and the past few days i've had the big D. plus my discharge has increased.



what do u guys think?



p.s i'm only 36 weeks.

Sounds like normal end of pregnancy stuff....I have dilated 1-2 cm and 50 % effaced since 36 weeks. Been losing parts of mucus plug since 34 weeks

I'm due in a little over 3 weeks and I've been doing the same thing. Even having scattered braxton hicks contractions... When I went to my appointment on thursday i was told that I'm 2 cm dilated and my cervix has ripened. I'm super nervous as well.

I'm having the same problem. Been feelin super out of it and pressure down there and in my back and having a lot of cramping and bh... I'd say body is preparing for labor. Just be sure to get plenty of rest and drink plenty water...
