Hi everyone,
I went to the doctors for a check up yesterday and it turns out I am 1 CM dilated and my Cervix is really soft. I woke up today and I have been having Contractions all day long. My back is killing me and Im so tired. Could this be the real deal?.. or am I just thining out more and I still have a while to go?.. I've had two other kids but they were born on there due dates with no early contractions, atleast not like these. :*(

It could be back labor, thats how mine always felt. If it gets worse I would go in to L&D

I was 4cm by 35 weeks and 7cm by 37 weeks. It could still be a few weeks. I'd take it easy though, so he can bake a little longer and develop his lungs.

Not sure if you know, but the more children you have, your cervix never closes back as tight. So this being your third child. 1cm does not really mean a lot. I had continuous bouts of false labour from 35 weeks on.Very painful contractions ect. I also was 4 cm at 35 weeks. I was told to take it very easy and was put on pelvic rest till 38 weeks. My son was born at 39 weeks.
