Forgive me in advance for sounding so dumb. With DD I never went into labor on my own. She was a week late and I never had any symptom or sign of impending labor. Never even dialated a fingertip.
With that being said, these past few days I keep feeling like this baby is coming... like soon. My C/S is scheduled for over a month away, but I swear I am having random contractions. My body is doing things that only happened after DD was already late or here.
My ankles/feet are starting to swell, my entire body hurts at night, my vagina feels like its going to fall to the floor and feels sore, my stomach is so tight I can see and feel every little move. TMI - - lots of discharge and my boobs feel totally full of milk and even leak.
Anyways, what I want to know is the typical 'is this normal'? DH, clearly not a woman, says that this is how most pg women feel towards the end and I just got lucky with DD.
I have a regular appt. with the OB tomorrow and will ask him. But, really, how do you know when the baby is coming? I am only 34 weeks but I want him to do an internal because I swear somethings going on in there. Did you know when it was getting close to having your baby?
