Just wondering about the clear liquid you have when you pee every 2 minutes... Have you considered the thought that it might be a leak or amniotic fluid? You should ask your Doctor.

Popkissmama~ Thanks for the good description of what the cervix would feel like. I think I've felt that before. Now how would I tell if its dilating??? Sorry if TMI but I've been curious since a few weeks ago I got up during the night to pee and when I wiped I felt like I almost lost my hand up there and yes all I was doing was wiping. We had had sex but it was the day prior so I guess it was just taking extra time to go back to normal size.

I know that mine is wishful thinking. According to everyone (including my SIL who had 2 huge babies) I'm very large for my time. Not only that but I'm peeing every 5 minutes, can't get enough to drink, swollen all over, lactating, waking up every 2 hours. The only thing that I haven't had (or at least haven't recognized) are the BH and that's why I think I'm probably not going to be too early. Plus, the SIL that thinks I'm really big, she was measuring 3cm bigger than she should've been and went a week late!

I don't know if it's wishful thinking or not, but I feel like he's going to be early, not by much but earlier than expected. I'm totally swollen up and running to the bathroom all the time already, and lately feeling really uncomfortable and tired. Time will tell though...

MMMM...not really sure how to answer that question...I guess it feels like "a cork" inside of you, but not the same consistency, due to the fact that our bodies' organs are soft....For some of us it may feel like a miniature "long neck", soft, round. Think of one of those sponges that are used for bc.
I guess?? It's too early to think!

Thanks all! I really appreciate the fact that others are concerned about the same stuff. I was really thinking that it was just my own self freaking out. I have another dr. appt next wednesday w/ an u/s, so hopefully they'll tell me that everything is AOK. I've just started being really uncomfortable this week and I haven't been like that at all throughout my pregnancy - not even in the heat! Now, at 31 weeks I feel like I'm only minutes away from birth!
I'm not sure about checking my own cervix - not sure I know what to look for...???
How can you tell that is what your feeling??

MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS ARE CLEAN!! FINGERNAILS AND ALL OR USE A GLOVE. Sit on the toilet, and check...use 2 or 3 fingers, and if you're cervix isn't too high, you should be able to feel it. My cervix is extremely easy to reach prolly why I bleed alot after sex - TMI SORRY). But if you can't reach it, don't make yourself crazy...

You might not be able too. The cervix might be to high yet for you to check. I know that my OB and the nurse had to really stretch to feel my cervix because it was up high, it's starting to change, but he said it was a good sign that it was still high yet. I went home that night and I couldn't get to it. lol. I tried every position that I used to check my cervix when I was charting, and still couldn't reach it.

Our little guy just seems bound and determined to come early. I went in for contractions last week only to discover that I was 60% effaced. If we can just get him to hang on for another 5 more weeks it would be great. But it's hard being on modified bedrest.

I kinda feel the same way about baby coming early..but, I just kick back and do my normal stuff - nothing I can really do about it. I check my own cervix every so often (sorry if TMI), and I am definitely dialating - no effacing though.
Only God and Angele know when she'll decide to make her appearance!

You are all freaking me out! I am 35 weeks next week, and still thinking I have a ways to go. If I have him at 36 weeks, I may have him next WEEK! I have had a change in my discharge, lots of discomfort, he's already dropped, lots of diarrea, and I was moved from EDD 7-25-06 to 8-1-06 based on an ultrasound measurement taken at 9 weeks (I am still thinking they may be wrong!)

I've been wondering the same thing, especially since this is #4 for me. The baby has been wearing my cervix out, constantly pushing and it's getting really painful. Thought for sure the other day when she pushed that my water was going to break. My discharge (TMI) is changing and I've had some pretty wicked BH's. This is really scaring me because I'm still in New Orleans. I don't want to have this baby down here!!!

I don't know if it's just because I've not been through this before, but just yesterday I started having this very strange feeling that my baby is going to arrive very early. I noticed yesterday that I've begun lactating (Sorry if TMI).. I was in the shower and looked down and OH MY!! Then, I've been doing the every 4 second trip to the bathroom for about 3 teaspoons of clear/white pee. Saturday night I rolled over in bed and pulled some very large muscle in my tummy and have been SO Sore ever since. Then finally, yesterday afternoon, I started having BH and they've been happening on & off ever since.... Should I be concerned or is all of this normal? I'm freaking a little b/c my shower isn't until 7/22 and I have NOTHING ready for this munchkin... not even a car seat!!!
Anyone else having these feelings??
