Being the 4th baby & all but what does it feel like to have contractions and/or labor BEFORE water breaks? My other 3, I felt nothing until water broke then bring on the pain!
I'm wondering if I am having contractions. The baby has been head down for about a month now. She's like head on pelvis bone. I feel it all the time. Anyway. Yesterday and today I have been having on again off again pressure with pain in my pelvis region with tightening in my upper belly region. Some back pain but nothing out of the ordinary. I know with BH, movement will make it go away and I can usually still function when having BH but this is also like stop me in my tracks pain, lasting 45-60 seconds. They aren't closely spaced nor regular. I had 2 in 1 hr yesterday then went couple hrs and had another. It did it that way pretty much all day/night/today.
If I feel the need to, I will call and/or go to L&D. I see my OB on Thursday after my BPP and I will definitely talk to him about it too. I am 34wks. Have had premature babies before - 33wkr, 35wkr & a 36wkr. I'm hoping that if I do have her early, she will be healthy enough to come home with me. We already know she's big, just not sure how big. We are hoping to make it to the end of March but we shall see.
My other 3 kids bag is packed. My bag is packed. Tobi's diaper bag is packed. Getting the carseat tonight. Even got my hubby's bag packed. Camera batteries are charged & in bag. Towel in each car (have had my water break 2/3 pregnancies while in car). And the list of last minute things to grab on our way out (iPad & Charger). I've washed all my 0-3 month clothes, blankets, etc.
I'm getting nervous here....!
