Lightning crotch. It's the baby's head jamming your cervix.

Unfortunately, it's very common. It's the worst, I know,

ok thank you. i was told yesterday that i have low fluid and am at a greater risk for a stillborn so i was basically getting scared. and the pain was not the best either. hopefully everything will be fine til my fluid recheck on tuesday.

Oh, I remember seeing your thread. I was going to comment on it, but I got distracted. When my son was born via emergency C-Section due to severe Pre-E, he had almost NO fluid left because they caught it too late. He was totally, 100 percent healthy and fine. He was just small. :)

ya they told me that because my fluid is so low that the baby has a greater chance of the cord being compressed. and that scared the shit out of me. he is 6lbs 9oz as of yesterday though so hes not small by any means. i still dont see why they didnt just induce yesterday.

i assumed they would with the way they were talking but then they didnt. i think they just want to see if it gets any lower. but i dont know why they would even risk something bad happening to the baby when they could just prevent it. im expecting to be induced on tuesday. and if they dont seem to want to do that then im gonna let them know how anxious and scared its making me and that is definitely not good for baby. its not like hes too small or his lungs arent developed. they checked everything and said hes healthy. i do have a doppler though and im checking his heartbeat a few times a day.

I would go ahead and say to prepare yourself mentally for a possible C-Section. Like, hope for the best, but it's likely they would want to go that route to control the risk of the cord getting clamped.

I have the same thing, does that mean it could be changing my cervix? I sure hope so!

I had them constantly from 28 weeks on, and my cervix only ever dilated to 1 cm...but it's possible. :)
