Its been happening on and off for the past week at least!! Only when i'm standing or walking about. It does hurt quite a bit.

I'm 36 weeks and 5 days and i am due to be induced sunday 9th due to Gracie not growing. Is this a sign that i would be going into labour earlier than sunday?

I think i'm starting to loose my mucus plug as well. Its only coming out in bits but it does resemble snot!!(sorry tmi)

What do you think? Has anyone ever experience this?

I don't know hun.... does it feel like she's trying to poke out through your crotch? Because I've been feeling that for the last few weeks at random times, and it's normal. But with you, I don't know, because I haven't had any problems with the baby's growth, so with you it might be something other than just a normal pregnancy thing.


Oh jeeze, that didn't really help you at all, did it? Sad

I got those feelings too. I think she's moving down to the birthing canal. Friday night i felt her moving from 1030pm to 230am, and a couple times i felt her really low, and then i would get a really large contraction. i think baby is getting ready, and i have been losing my plug for the last 3 days. I'm sure you could go in before sunday. But don't trust my information, cause i'm not sure. Just from what i've gathered on the internet.

That's your cervix, sweetie! It's very possible that you're dilating and/or effacing! When you stand, gravity pulls Gracie's head down and the pressure against your cervix encourages it to thin and open. I know it's not comfortable Sad I don't miss those days! But it is your body preparing itself.
