The openness like you said. More if like a slow release until my bladder is empty. Finally someone else! But yes! Also I get a feeling like my baby is going to fall out of me every time I pee.
Yeah exactly it feels like spread haha and is sore. Im getting induced on Tuesday next week if my baby doesn't come this weekend :.
I wonder how much I'm dilated or if it has to do with this. Oh really? Aw I was hoping it meant that I'm dilating lol. I can't wait really, ill be 41 weeks tomorrow. I'm all sore and can barely walk without it hurting haha. Nope lol. Not the case w me at least. A little nervous about being induced so hoping things speed along on the next 10 days. I'm 40 weeks and been getting exactly this for about a week. The doctor couldn't check my cervix or do a membrane sweep today because my cervix is "behind the babies head.

I urinate so much also! It is normal. That baby is down so low that any little bit of fluid in the bladder has to come out immediately. That's what it feels like to me. I have been crampy for weeks now. They say that it is your body getting ready for the real cramps. The back pain has been pretty bad too. I always had back pain when i would start my period.
It is just the early stages of labor. Good Luck. I actually felt like this two to three days before I went into labor. It's normal it is just that the baby is dropping and is putting pressure on your bladder that what makes you feel like you have to pee all the time. Maybe you will be going into labor sooner than you think good luck.
Quite possibly if you are feeling pressure. I would watch for bleeding. If cramping does start, keep track if it has any consistency and contact your doctor if so. Answer Save. Favorite Answer.

His skin now has a protective fat layer covering the blood vessels across the body, and his formerly translucent pink complexion becomes a tad darker as skin pigment starts to develop. And on top of his sweet little noggin he might be sporting a full head of hair.
Or he might be a cutie cue ball. Or somewhere in between. At 39 weeks pregnant, you've got what is officially considered a full-term baby. Your baby now weighs around 7 to 8 pounds and measures 19 to 21 inches.
Those measurements won't change much from now on, but his brain is still growing at an astonishing rate — a pace that will continue for the first three years of life — with changes you'll be able to recognize firsthand as your baby's skill-packed bag of tricks expands almost daily. If you're 39 weeks pregnant, you're in month 9 of your pregnancy. Only a week or two left to go!
Still have questions? Here's some more information on how weeks, months and trimesters are broken down in pregnancy. Heard that babies cry a lot? There's definitely truth to that rumor — as you'll find out soon enough, usually in the middle of the night. But what you may not have heard is that tiny babies don't produce tiny tears when they cry, since their tear ducts aren't fully open for business yet. While you'll be consoling your crying baby right from the get-go, it won't be until sometime after the first month that you'll be wiping tears off those chubby cheeks.
Your baby's skin has now finally changed from pink to white, no matter what his eventual complexion will be.
Pigmentation will occur soon following birth. That's because a thicker fat layer has been deposited over the blood vessels, making your baby's cheeks pinchably and kissably round. The end — and a whole new beginning! These last few days, or last couple of weeks if your baby is late, may seem to speed by or drag out. You're probably feeling increasingly uncomfortable by now, as you lug around your ever-heavier uterus and its contents — plus your pelvis is feeling achier and achier as your baby bears down.
Knowing that you can go any day, you should be watching out for signs of labor. Once you've seen bloody show, labor is probably just a day or two away — though don't try to set your watch to it, since it's not a definite timetable.
Just make sure your bag is packed! Many hospitals and birthing centers are increasingly sensitive to an expectant mother's desire to be awake, comfortable and with the people she loves both during and after delivery — even if that delivery is via C-section. These days, most will try to accommodate your requests in a non-emergency situation, so ask for what you want.We all know the stereotypes of huge dramatic water gushes that we see on TV and in movies.
Waters breaking in stores, cars and the most inconvenient of places. But is there any real way to tell when your water is about to break?
Is it possible to get prepared before the potential soaking? Or are we destined to spend the final few days before our due date as far from the outside world as possible? The answer is maybebut there are certainly some clear-cut clues to look out for.
Have a read below and see if you can spot the likely signs. However, rest assured, there are things you can do to make this wait less stressful. Firstly, remember that the vast majority of women will only experience their waters breaking when they are actually in labor and prepared for the prospect. Furthermore, of these even fewer will experience the huge gush they fear. Secondly, incontinence products can help you feel more comfortable in public. Most waters break with a trickle and since these are designed to hold larger amounts of fluid they can give you enough time to get somewhere more private.
Thirdly, there are signs to look for that labor, and the related water breakage is close. Here we help with what you need to look out for. When you hit the final weeks of pregnancy, it takes everything in your power not to be awake at midnight, cleaning out your cupboards or some other vital seeming task. Well, imagine all this, ramped up. The desire to nest increases exponentially in the lead up to the birth of your baby, and just before their waters broke, some women have reported feeling the nesting urge in extreme and overwhelming proportions.
Often unable to relax at all, these women take nesting to new heights, literally. Actions can include an urge to clean things you've never cleaned before or at least not in a long time like the top of your cupboards or even, according to a British tabloid, the screws in the cupboard handles.
If this happens to you, don't even think about climbing that ladder trust us, it isn't safe. Instead, start preparing for labor. Also, if you succumb to a laughing, sneezing or coughing fit then all bets are off. Many also mention that just before the leak of amniotic fluid, they experience an urge to urinate.
It sounds crazy but there is actually an audible pop that sounds out from down below. How loud is it, I hear you ask?
You can probably liken it to the sound of a joint cracking or a water balloon popping in a towel. As to what it feels like, imagine a gentle flick, followed by a gush of warm fluid from between your legs. Cramping in your uterus or the feeling that you're getting your period can indicate baby wants out to make an appearance. Paul du Treil, M. This crampy sensation usually gets gradually worse and worse, and soon finds the rhythm we call regular contractions.
Waters breaking can come at any point during labor so any regular and sustained contractions late in pregnancy serve as a warning sign. This might sound like a game of football, but I can assure you that your water breaking is no day out at the park. Mother Nature, however, seems to have found a way of breaking you in gently. A hind-water leak can stop of its own accord because the hole can be resealed by the layers of the membrane. Once your water has fully gone, labor can become more painful, contractions stronger and back pain harsher.
Late Pregnancy Symptoms Before Going Into Labor – 8 Signs To Watch For
However, even after a hind-water leak you become more vulnerable to infection, so it's best to seek medical advice after this happens.Waiting during the last month of pregnancy for signs of your imminent labor can be torturous. Because there are late pregnancy symptoms before going into labor, you can gauge as to possibly how close you are to delivering your baby. It would be excellent if you could just have a checklist of everything that is going to happen to you.
But really, when things take place, even if they do at all, is almost as accurate as your due date. Here are eight signs you should know about. Somewhere between 30 and 34 weeks, your baby will turn head down. This is in order to position themselves for birth before there is no room left to turn. You may even hear that your baby is posterior face up and that it may mean a more difficult labor for you.
Be sure so see Spinning Babies if you have either case. When You Should Worry. Somewhere between 1 and 4 weeks before you start labor, your baby will descend deeply into your pelvis. If your baby has turned, this will be the next step and is guaranteed before delivery. Often you may not even notice that this has happened, even when looking in the mirror sideways. First-time mothers are more likely to not have any contractions until active labor.
So when you go into your doctor at 36 weeks and they start checking you for dilation, it can mean everything, and it can also mean nothing. But even then, things can be just as different with each pregnancy. Your mucus plug will dislodge from your cervix within a week of going into labor, usually a couple days. But the caveat is that you can even lose your mucus plug at the start of active labor.
However, MOST mothers lose theirs prior to any active contractions. You may not even notice it being lost. Want to know exactly when your mucus plug comes out? Wear a menstrual cup the last few weeks of your pregnancy and check it daily. Having potty troubles is a less common pre-labor symptom. But you may have diarrhea very shortly before your active labor, sometimes even during it.
Just to be smart, have an ample supply of baby wipes handy by your toilet for easier cleanup. Yes, you can absolutely break open the huge case of baby wipes from your baby shower in use them on yourself.I am 39 weeks pregnant, and all day have been feel a lot of pressure in my lower pelvic region like the baby was pushing down a lot at times. I came home from visiting my husband at work and I went to use the restroom and when I sat down and started to urinate I know a lot of info lol I had a popping sensation and it startled me, it made it feel like something was going to come out, and there was some pressure and whatnot.
At my last visit my doctor said I already didnt have much fluid to begin with so I am not sure if my water broke and I just thought I was urinating or what is going on.
I havent been "leaking" at all since, it just seems like every time I use the restroom that happens and I just have a lot of pressure going on down there.
I could have written this post myself. It's happened to me twice already today and 3 times yesterday and also a few times last week.
I rang my Doctors and he didn't seem bothered. He said it could be my bowels as they're tightened at the moment but he just told me to keep an eye and see if i had contractions. I'm having very mild ones today but i am worried as i also have a lack of water in there and would like to be checked over but my Doctor won't do it and my Midwife is on holiday! When my water broke, I felt a pop and then felt a gush. After that it was just a little trickle every once in a while.
Right after the gush I had a horrible pain in my back and had to sit down, but after that all I had were a few trickles and mild cramping. Not sure if it was your water or not, but as far along as you are, I would call the doctor. Good luck and congratulations!
I pop all the time, especially going down the stairs. Our pelvis and ligaments are not in their usual spots, so we pregnant women are a bit misaligned. Our bodies do this to prepare for the passage of the baby through the pelvis. You are not hurting the baby, your water isn't gonna break well not due to this anywayso just relax and hold out for a bit longer! I would check with the doctor and make sure you aren't losing water-often times you'll notice at the restroom but the baby's head will act as a cork when you stand up and stop it.
If you won't call then try lying down with a pad on and look for leakage when you get up, if its there likely your losing water. If you heard or felt popping 3 times, it's probably not your water breaking. You might want to call your dr's office or hospital and ask them if you should come in and be checked since it's almost your due date. Hi everyone, I am 39 weeks pregnant, and all day have been feel a lot of pressure in my lower pelvic region like the baby was pushing down a lot at times.
