QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am 28 weeks and I lost my plug 4 days ago. I have been crampy, I have back pain and I have nausea real bad. I saw my DR. yesterday but he is acting so calm and like there is nothing to be concerned about. This is my 4th baby... I am so worried that I am in the early stages of labor and I want my baby to be healthy.

My Dr. did check me yesterday and he said that I did lose the plug and that I am starting to thin out but I am not dilated?? Now what??? I am so concerned; please help!

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am currently 7 weeks with my third child. I have a UTI that was diagnosed on Thursday.

The doctor also told me from picking up my other two children I have pulled the muscles in my stomach. I have been vomiting non stop and am having pain in my stomach at the lower part.

Round Ligament Pain

Have you experienced sharp abdominal pains when in the process of sitting down, standing up, bending over, or rolling over in bed? This is commonly known as Round Ligament Pain. The severity of pain can worry you. Although round ligament pain can be very uncomfortable, it also is very normal. This pain is not harmful to the baby in any way.

False Labor

As your estimated time of delivery approaches you may notice the "Braxton Hicks" contractions become more frequent and intense. Contractions seem to follow a continuum from Braxton Hicks to real labor.
