Hi all! I can't believe we are here! It was an amazing journey! Now for the good stuff. I am due monday Aug 3rd. I have been having a picture perfect pregnancy so these "labor signs" are hard for me to differentiate. In the mornings, I feel completely fine. Like I could go in for months! At night, I feel heavier and a lot more crampy. My "contractions", which I believe are braxton hicks, get closer and a little stronger at night. I lost my mucous plug last Thursday ( 5 days ago) . I guess Im just wondering if I will know when important things are happening. I have a pretty high pain tolerance so things that may not hurt me may be bad for other people. As of last thursday, I was 1 cm dilated also. I know that's not much at all. I am CONSTANTLY in the bathroom. I feel like my bladder can never fully empty. No diarrhea yet. Do you always get it? Sometimes the "contractions" make me a little lightheaded and dizzy but not in a bad way if that makes any sense . Anyone else in the same boat? Not knowing if these "signs" are active labor?
