You're getting ready: To deliver! You're in the home stretch, that's for sure. I presume your birthing classes have taught you that the cervix will dilate to 10 cm and thin (efface) considerably before delivery. The pain could simply be a pelvic structure that is being compressed when the baby moves. Review your birthing plan and get ready for the ride of a lifetime! Very good wishes! ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

I am 36 weeks and 3 days pregnant its bee a healthy pregnancy so far I am starting to bleed a little but no sex involved should I be worried?

Bloody show?: Active bleeding is not normal and you should see your ob. Passing a little blood tinged mucus is typical of a "bloody show" and means the cervix has lost its mucus 'plug". That is nothing to worry about and is typical. It has no predictive value, though, and there is no way to know when you will go into labor based on the bloody show. ...Read more

I am 38. I have triplets pregnancy for 7week. I'm worried this situation. Is that possible that three babies carring for 36 weeks.

Yes: Most will end up in labor earlier and deliver by urgent C-section, but some get lucky. I had one mom carry to 37 wks with triplets & all did well. Just make sure you maintain good communication with your delivery team so they can work with you to get as far as possible. ...Read more

Will cervix be open at 37 weeks 5 days if it was closed at 36 weeks 5 days pregnant with 4th child?

Could be: One can not predict exactly when one’s cervix is going to start dilating. We also can not predict when labor will occur. At your next prenatal appointment ask your doctor to do a cervical exam. They will easily be able to assess the current status of your cervix. ...Read more

I am 36 weeks pregnant, Was dilated to a 3 last doctor visit 3 days ago, Now my contractions are 10 minutes apart im feeling very nauseous?

L&D evaluation: 36 weeks is preterm and at 3 cm dilated, you're at risk for early delivery. A 36 week infant should do well as long as no infection exists. You are probably in early labor, go to L&D for eval, see if you benefit from antibiotics (GBS status needed), and have good pediatric care at delivery in case your infant needs immediate care. Trust your OB & best of luck to you. (No induction recommended). ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant 1 CM dilated nonpainful contractions 2-3 min apart 2 days ago constant cramping, very uncomfortable, should I go into be seen again?

Call you OB: Most OB docs and midwives have an answering service. Call your docs office even though it is Sunday and usually the service will pick up or the message will give further instructions. It should kind feel like you're carrying a weight between your legs all the time now and being 1cm is fine. Contractions that come and go are usually consistent with false labor. ...Read more

36 weeks 2 days pregnant and had very slimey thick odorless mucuos come out today, pain in abdominal and lower back what could this mean?

Maybe early labor: At this time in pregnancy you could lose your mucous plug, and you could be feeling cramps as the birth canal begins to thin and soften in preparation for labor. However, this could be signs of premature labor, maybe a urinary tract infection, and should be immediately checked out by your obstetrician. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks and 4 days pregnant, my belly tightens up and my baby is head down already. I've been having bad back pains?

Uterus practice runs: And your question is? Your uterus is simply having some preliminary practice runs getting ready for the big day which could happen any time after the next 2-3 weeks. Baby's head down is good at this point.

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I have had a burning feeling under my right rib for a month. The last couple of days it has turned increasingly worse.?

Right upper pain: This could just be rib pain, but there are a couple things of great concern with pain up there. 1. gallstones or other gallbladder issues. 2. pre eclampsia. Make sure your OB or midwife is aware so some blood work and possible a gallbladder US can be done. ...Read more
