Nesting, sleeping more…ummmm…I knew I was in labor when I pooped real good and cleaned out my insides.

Aching back for me, like period pain.

If you start going to the toilet if say yes your baby is on the way! Good luck!

Sounds like Braxton hicks (false contractions)… No indication that labour is near… Neither is losing bits of your mucus plug…

Urge to poop, period like cramps were the signs I experienced. You still seem to have time… please don’t worry and good luck :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

i felt a heavy aching feeling in the bottom of my stomach and fanny the day before, it felt like a weight was on me. i said to my sisters that it was gonna happen that day or the next. i remember complaining to them on the way to the shop😂

For me I had back pain and I started having diarrhea :woozy_face: then my mucus plug started to come out with a bloody show! And of course accompanied by contractions

Baby will come. No one is pregnant forever. Labor can start with no signs leading up to it. Get some rest.

I’ve been going pee like every 1-2hrs, having constant pelvic pressure, my lower back hurts, and I can barely walk without pain. I’m 37+2 so I feel you on the wondering if labor is near.
With my oldest son I had to be induced, i was 41+4 when I got induced. With my youngest son my water broke on its own at 39 weeks exactly, but I still pretty much had to be induced with him. He was ready to come out, but my cervix was still 2cm high and long

My hands and feet swelled up a week before I had mine. Midwife told me it can happen just before labour.

A sign my ob once told me was diarrhea. Your body’s way of purging I guess you could say. Lol I was 39+5 and I remember waking up and was super crampy, had awful diarrhea went back to sleep few hours later woke up to pee and my water slightly broke on the toilet lol but it’s also extremely different for everyone! Good luck!!

It will come when it’s ready you can’t always know exactly when you got pregnant

I was the same with my 2nd, my ob and I swore she’d come before her due date just because my first was born 36 weeks, she made her appearance right at 39 weeks! Your body just knows what to prepare for so it’s starting sooner

Could be cleaning fluid not mucus plug. I’ve been getting the same since about then. I’m 39 weeks. I asked my midwife about it.
She’s assured me as long as no blood and it’s white it’s ok. She said if it’s clear (and watery) , brown or green or has a funky smell then we have a problem

My second baby came 34weeks, I lost a large piece of my mucous plug. The next morning around 6 am j had one hard painful contraction as my husband was getting up for work. Went back to sleep and by 4pm I was at the ER bc I thought j had a UTI. Nope I was in labor :sweat_smile: I had him at 2 am after 30 seconds of pushing!

I lost my mucus plug little by little, for about a month before baby number 2 showed up (10 days late)

My second was 2 weeks “overdue”. Your mucus plug can replenish so isn’t really much of an indication that labour will happen any time soon. Braxton hicks can be quite strong in second or more pregnancies as your body has done this before.

Losing your mucus plug is not a sign of labor. You still likely have at least a month to go.

My waters broke both times followed by muscus plug and bloody show a few hours later. Other than that I had nothing until contractions started x

My daughter was having irregular contractions during her second pregnancy kept telling me they were irregular all weekend but she felt like you described I took her to the emergency room that sunday afternoon and she was dilated 5 cm… they moved her directly to labor and delivery my granddaughter was born later that evening.

Sounds like your coming down with something. I never lost a mucus plug (which can grow back btw) or even had my water break but I was most definitely in labor. :woman_shrugging:t2:

I’d call your doctor and let them know. I don’t think that’s an indication of labor but you may come down with something, I’d probably take a covid test at home if I was you. I hope you feel better!


Check your blood pressure

When in doubt call labor and delivery or your ob just to make sure they don’t want to check you out. Good luck mama! It’s so hard to tell when you’re so close!

Do NOT bounce on a ball. Spread your legs and roll from side to side for as long as you can. It will help speed up labor if it’s near, by opening the hips.

Id get tested I felt this same way and was diagnosed with Covid. It will make your body contract and start preterm labor

Call your OB unit to make sure something else isn’t going on. Everyone’s labor and pre labor signs are different and your history of having two previous c- sections might cause other symptoms so better safe.

Your probably having Braxton hicks contractions. Real labor contractions won’t go away. They will get closer together.
Also losing your mucus plug is not a sign of labor it will fall out and come back neither is bloody show.
You are probably just getting sick with that stomach bug that everyone’s getting.
But nothing you described sounds like true labor

I lost my plug almost a month before I had my 2nd.

I went into labour with two of my kids born at 35 weeks. one my water broke randomly and second was having contractions for what felt like for ever. I had gone into early labour with the second. 3 out of 4 of my kids tried to come before 32 weeks. It can happen if you feel the need to do checked i would. My second born water broke not dilated no contractions 3 hours later i had my baby. It can go fast and that early there are things drs can do to help.

If you think you’ve been leaking amniotic fluid, you need to call your doctor and go get checked out, immediately.


Call your doctor! :woman_facepalming:t2:

What do you think you should do

4th kid. Your leaking fluid and don’t think you should call the Dr :woman_facepalming: instead of asking unqualified individuals. Call SOMEONE or Go to the hospital :woman_facepalming:


Go to hospital now, and call you OB on the way
