I'm 39w3d with our miracle baby (who's counting?) :)
Besides him dropping a few weeks ago and 2 months of Braxton Hicks, I haven't really noticed signs of impending labor any time soon, until last night.

I started having on-agaon off-again lower back pains. I've also had a ton more pressure down there than usual, and I've been having a little bit of leakage. I also think I lost my mucus plug a week ago, and have noticed little tissue-like strands here and there when I pee. I've had no bleeding at all, not even a little.

My doctor doesn't check for cervix dilation, and won't until I go over 40w, so I have no clue how close I am!
