I should know this but.... Suzanne Moodispaugh Due October 1; 3 kids; Chelsea, Oklahoma 19 posts29th Aug
Ok I am 35 weeks and 1 day. Been loosing my plug since Monday. I also have a bad cold and coughing and having to blow my nose all the time. This morning I am having some pain in my back (which is normal as I have back problems) but they seem to come and go. Also I'm having problems going to the bathroom. Could I be in labor?:?

You could be. Anything is possible. Do you have a history of preterm labor? It's most likely just normal pregnancy discomforts. Having a cold is absolutely no indication of labor and back pain is incredibly normal.

I have been on meds since 30 weeks because I was starting to dialate already they were trying to hold it off till 36 weeks. My other kids were born at 37, 38, & 39 weeks. The only thing that worries me is how the back pain is sharp and comes and goes. I need to start to time them I guess.

Yeah, time them. That's how my labour started (back labour) with just back pain coming and going.
