Just had my 37 wk appt, and everything's looking good! I'm 2-3cm and 60% effaced. Baby is at 0 station. I described the clusters of contractions I've been having (they subsided yesterday afternoon), and she said they sounded a lot like "dropping pains". She thinks baby is going to relax for at least a few days, but that I could go any time after that.

We'll see!

wow.. how does everyone get dilated and effaced before me lol. Smile

what do the contractions feel like. I noticed something what I think is dropping pains, I felt a lot of pushing down hard today and some lower back pain but no contractions til tonight. For some reason I contract at night ..... arrrrgh .... thus keeping me awake and worried.

Did what you have feel kind of sharp all over pelvic pain, pain isn't really the right word, it didn't kill me but it was slightly painful but like sharp outward, slipping .. i don't know. But the next day I was suddenly able to breathe. So I think it was dropping pains followed by some contractions.

They feel just like mild contractions, but they don't turn into anything. I was having 5 or 6 close together and then a break for twenty minutes or so. No real pattern.
