so here it goes, yesterday i woke up with all the energy in the world. I clean everything in sight, but even with all that energy i wasnt feeling "right". my stomach has been hard as a rock since yesterday.  I have been feeling very heavy like the baby is about to fall out of my V.I was also very naseous yesterday. "TMI" I went #2 twice yesterday & today. ( so far) Earlier today i was sitting & felt a sudden wettness, i got up and my sheet had a little wet spot. I went to the bathroom to check where it was coming from, it was coming from my V hole. It was clear and watery not mucusy at all. (yesterday i had real thick mucus) None has come out since earlier but i  have real bad back pain and period like pain on & off. My stomach is very hard still. now as i am typing this im getting very sharp pains in my V hole!!!

Sounds like your body is getting ready (maybe Braxton hicks?) If you're concern and in pain go ahead and stop by the hospital. How far along are you?

luck!

You could be in early Latent or prodromal labor, Bit even then, that can last for weeks.

I will be 36 weeks tomorrow. Im kinda worried because i went to get an ultrasound last week & my baby's umbilical cord is around her neck...could that cause the pain im getting? I also dont want to go and nothing be wrong, id be so embarassed. you'd think i would know by now this is my 4 th baby!!

well they do say each pregnancy is different so that's probably why you never really know. 
honestly if the cord is around the baby's neck i would be running up to the hospital for every little thing that scares me. 
remember it's your baby, go check! 
i rather be safe than god forbid anything happened to the baby because i didn't want to feel like i was over exaggerating. 
i say go check that way your mind can be at ease. 

go. go. go. =P

Early/false labor. Very normal to have these symptoms for days even weeks leading up to active labor.however it's always better to be safe than sorry,  so if you think your water is leaking or that you're in active labor go down and get checked.

that's a good idea. 
clearly if you're in labor it won't go away. 
just be careful and really pay attention to your body.

My friend lost pieces of her mucous plug for weeks before she went into labor and was leaking about a week before. But I don't think she had any pains, you should go get checked out by your doctor, that's the only way to know what's going on, no one on here will know what is happening with baby. Call your doctor. :)
