    The doc hasn't mentioned internal checks yet, and if they offer it I'll likely turn it down. I don't see the point - most people are a little dilated at this point, but that doesn't indicate when my labour will happen. I'd rather not play the "am I progressing?" game. Once labour starts in earnest, I'm sure I'll know.

    I've started experiencing really bad tailbone pain and sciatic pain in the last few days. It's excruciating! I can't imagine contractions being any more painful that that. Hopefully anyway My sciatic pain seems to be the worst when I'm on the toilet (sorry TMI). Maybe my intestines are pressing on the nerve? 'Cause I swear, when I'm sitting there, I have to try and stretch out my left leg a little to make it tolerable and even then it hurts so bad I want to cry! Has anyone else experienced this?

    I haven't had that problem - but I laughed when you said "I can't imagine contractions being any more painful that that." - because any time I've been feeling pain (like that pain you get when you twist from side to side too quickly?) I think - DAMN! I hope labor doesn't hurt this much!

    Still feeling much the same. I'm sleeping a bit better this week, so that's nice. Baby is still kicking the sh*t out of me constantly, and it increases in the evening. That seems to be baby's busiest time of day. I'm getting quite a few of the sharp pains in my cervix every evening, and the odd ctrx, but nothing major.
    I've read that you're supposed to start getting soft stools when you get close, but I'm having the opposite problem! Grrr.
    I've also been getting some really sharp cramping - not like menstrual cramps mind you, more like the cramps you get in your side when you go for a hard run or something. It kinda feels like round ligament pain, but that's not supposed to still be happening is it?

    I though the ligament pain could continue the whole pregnancy? I hope your little one lets you get some rest and that your not in too much pain. In my experience the loose bm does happen close to labor, try drinking lots of water it should help!

    i am glad you are sleeping better, it makes a world of difference. i've had stabbing pains kinda like what you described as well as pains in my cervix, very uncomfy! i would assume that ligament pain would/could continue throughout b/c your body is 'always' adjusting things and making room for your uterus and babies movements

    Glad you are sleeping better! I am 32 weeks and still have horrible liagment pain, but mostly after I have been sitting a while then stand up fast. I get stabbing pains in my stomach by my ovary area. I hope you feel better.

    I'm still having the ligament pain too - I think it's normal!

    I had another checkup today, and everything is supposedly fine, but I've gained 5 pounds in the last week, and my bp shot up! It's still within normal ranges, but it's wierd! My bp has been holding steady at 98/56 for the whole pregnancy, then all of a sudden this week it's 124/78 - what could cause that?

    higher bp can happen for all sorts of reasons and most of them are just temporary. mine has been steady and then up and then back again next time. our bodies are pretty weird.

    Did you have the check up a a different time of day than normal? I usually go in the morning - but had one appointment later in the afternoon, and pretty much everything was different! I'm sure it's no big deal. The doc would have said some if they were worried!
