    Default Can't shake this feeling

    I am having this continuous feeling that baby is probably gonna be coming pretty early. I mean like soon. :/ I have had some irregular contractions and waves of back pain occasionally but that's all. There isn't like a real reason I should be concerned but I just have this feeling that won't go away. Idk. It's weird!

    When is your next appointment? I hope he doesn't come this early! KUP...

    Maybe see if you can get in to see your dr and have them do a pelvic just to check. I have a feeling mine will be here sooner rather than later also. Im half way thinking before thanksgiving. As long as she is 36 weeks I will be ok with that. KUP on what if anything happens or you can get in to see your dr.

    I personally give a lot of credit to mothers intuition, so there could be something to your gut feeling. That said, being early is relative and it doesn't necessarily mean your LO will be so early it's dangerous. My advice would be talk to your doctor and as someone else said, maybe ask for a pelvic check. Back pain can be contractions, but at this point in pregnancy it can also be from the weight of your stomach.

    A lot of times mommies feel silly calling the doc with their fears. Don't. If you feel like the contractions are regular at all, call. It can be possible to stop preterm labor and keep LO baking longer, but not after a certain point. IMO it's better to go in for "nothing" than to stay home when it really is something.

    Don't ignore your gut instinct. I would at least talk with your OB. My contractions have been picking up. I get a cervical exam and a fetal fibronectin(a swab of your cervical area--predicts if labor can be expected within 1-2 weeks)every time I go to doc!! Started at 27 weeks for me. I think a cervical exam would be helpful at this point. Hang in there.

    I second all of the above. It is better to find out just in case so you can prevent baby from coming too early, even if it means everything is actually okay and your worries are unfounded. My o.b. always tell me that nothing is to silly or insignificant to call about. Better safe than sorry.

    Hope it all goes well for you and baby is able to stay baking as long as possible!!

    Hey ladies. Thanks for your advice. I would feel silly calling the doctor because I honestly have no reason to worry or feel that way. :/ IDK I have an appointment next Wednesday. So I was just gonna talk about my concerns then. My doctor will be out of town so I will actually be seeing someone else. I haven't had a pick up in contractions. The most I had was the night after we DTD 2x during the day. We haven't DTD again because DH is sick.

    i also agree with everyone - listen to the gut instinct....we have it for a reason. But def. bring it up to the dr if you're thinking about it, maybe find out when you'll get checked, etc...... My guess is DTD had something to do with the discomfort....

    Lol. No. but I rarely have a libido and we've been having some "sex issues" and so when the mood came we took advantage of it. lol. It rarely happens that way. We mostly have just had sex 1x/week and that's because I want to do it for him.
