Early labor Trisha Cepeda 3 kids; New York 33 posts

Ok....I'm 36 weeks and 3 days pregnant. At 36 weeks and 1 day I went into early labor around midnight....I went to L & D when my contractions got closer, got to the hospital I was 1 cm dilated and still thick. Baby's head was at -1 station. After 14 hours I dilated to 3 cm, 75% effaced and baby's head was still at -1 station. Now, I laid down for a nap and when I woke up there was a lot more pressure in my pelvic area and every now and then I get the feeling like I need to bear down, not bad but it's there. After I woke up I lost more of my mucus plug (I lost the majority of it at 35 weeks) and it was streaked with blood. I'm SOOOOO hoping this is almost over!!!! Has anybody ever got the the slight feeling like they need to bear down in early labor?? And how long did early labor last for you?

If you're already feeling like you need to push you should head straight to L&D!!!!

Mt husband is getting ready to take me over. I'm trying to wait a little longer for the pressure to get worse because I was at L & D 2 days ago and put under 14 hour observation and they pretty much told me not to come back in until my water broke because they won't admit me or encourage my labor because I'm not considered term yet. Thankfully however we live 5 minutes from the hospital.

I went thru pretty much the exact same thing. I'm now 40 weeks today and still waiting for the real deal :/

Baby update: Little miss is still holding out she has moved down to +1 station! And my mucus plug has turned very watery compared to the very thick nasty stuff I've been seeing over the past 2 weeks and she says that to her means labor is very close! I hope so because I don't know how much more I can take!
