For those of us still anxiously awaiting DD - Are you experiencing any pre-labor symptoms? Let us know what week you are, what they are and how long you've been experiencing them. List form is better so we don't have to read novel posts. Examples: Dropping, pressure, loss of mucous plug, bloody show, increase in BH, backache, energy level, etc. If you've had your cervix checked and feel like sharing those deets as well that would be awesome (dilation, effacement, etc.).
Re: What are your pre-labor symptoms?
I'm not dilated either.
Lost mucus plug yesterday.
Stomach feels tight.
Body aches and just want to be in a pool.
1 cm and 50% effaced on Monday (we will see what, if any, changes occur down there on Monday
MP partially gone
Cramps, off and on
Head is low but not fully engaged
Low back pain, starting today
Only 25% effaced and no dilation.
Lost MP on Thurs
Contractions increased Thurs
1.5 cm dialated
1.5 cm dilated (as of Monday)
Lots of cramps
Intense pelvic pain
Lost at least part of MP this week
Baby head is right there but bouncy not quite engaged.
Having tons of contractions but that is not new.
I went between 36
And a half and 38 weeks with my other three so I am hoping this one will be the same:)
BH since week 16.
I got nothing else. No checks at the doc.
DD was 40+3 and I felt nothing until I was already 5cm dilated and 5 minute contractions. I'm assuming that could happen again!
Nausea, decreased appetite, diarrhea this morning, fatigue, trouble sleeping, increased irritability, hip and back pain, lots of BH and some period like cramping, think a little mucous plug is starting to fall out, baby is low. Having a "feeling" it'll happen soon, but that could just be optimism.
BFP#3 10/29/13! Beta#1 at 4w5d - 2141, beta#2 at 5w1d - 7651! U/S 11/21/13 showed baby measuring 2 days ahead with a heartbeat of 127 bmp!
Not sure if there's any progress yet...next appointment is Wednesday!
DD born 7.27.2014

Since 33/34 weeks had regular contractions (false labor)
Lost mp little by little past few weeks
Almost completely thinned out (never got a %) just been told barley anything there
2cm dilated last check
Lots of Bh, back pain, loose bm & constipation, hips/pelvic cracks every time I get out of bed or roll over, lots of pressure in pelvis/ stretching or pulling feeling in pelvis. Mood changes exhausted then get the nesting urge to clean.
Lost my MP
Contractions on and off throughout the day
Lower back pain
Baby very low
Lots of pressure down there
Last appt was 3 cm, don't know effacement
Cramping. ..or are they contractions?
Pooping 3+ times a day
Underwear has constant wet spot which I think is just pee
Baby has dropped
Chunks of what I assume are the mucus plug with a bowel movement

If any OC mommas hear about a baby born on the 241, it's me.
Greenish discharge (mucus plug?)
Cracking of the hips
Pressure in pelvis
Cramping like crazy
Hoping these are signs he's coking very soon but not holding my breath
Had lots of energy wed night and cleaned till 4am(nesting)
Increased Braxton hicks last 2 weeks
Increase discharge. Nausea

HATE waiting! My 30th birthday is Tuesday due date is WED....praying Sunday or Monday I go into labor!

Just feeling off
BH every day now, and they increase if I go on walks or clean etc.
A few actual contractions - the kind you can't talk through and make you double over.
Increased discharge (though thankfully no pee leaks yet!)
Popping, cracking, achey pelvis, hips, and knees
Increasingly odd sleeping patterns (up till 5 am last night!)
No weight gain since 34 weeks?
Cramping when I stand up
And finally, lots and lots of lightning crotch/sciatic nerve pain/legs giving out. Yay!
1cm as of 36W
baby -2 station
Lots of pressure, low back ache, BH contractions, and regular contractions (almost painful - more intense and uncomfortable than BH) that last 2-4 hours and then magically stop (gahhh!)
Loss of plug a week and a day ago
Recent insomnia from increased contractions
Edit: loose/more frequent BMs
...To be fair, with DS, I had no symptoms and lost my mucus plug the morning of my due date and he was born within 12 hours, so I guess I'm not really all that worried :-)
But I had nothing w/DS then it hit and was to the finish line from there.
NP opted not to check me at my Thursday appt since I wasn't technically 38 weeks yet.... So no idea what's brewing in the lady bits but hopefully something because I have def had an increase in the yucky symptoms this week ( nausea vomiting heartburn indigestion-- not related to the stomach virus I caught Monday)
Seriously hoping I don't have 2 4th of July babies. One is enough lol.
Excessive heartburn/reflux/nausea and feeling like I could vomit at any moment
Insane sleeping pattern/extreme exhaustion
General "heavy" feeling in my entire torso
Popping pelvis/hips if I'm sitting or laying too long
Lightning crotch that's come back with a vengeance/10-20 minutes at a time 6-7 times a day
And since last week I have an hour or two of contractions every day at some point, usually after my walk. All of them painful and on intervals but they always stop
Increased discharge but no difference in texture/color at all
Was at 50% effaced with no dilation a week and a half ago, get checked again on thursday
