I passed my due date. I'm 41 weeks pregnant and I have pain in my lower back and my ass and legs. Like cramp. Is this a sign of labor?

Perhaps - go to L&D!: After three days past your due date (provided an early ultrasound confirmed its accuracy) the risk for the fetus to die is greater in utero than in the nursery, so you do not want to be pregnant much longer. I would recommend going to your l&d of choice and requesting evaluation with the plan of delivery! Best of luck!

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.

I'm 41 weeks pregnant and my baby slightly back to back, will this make labour difficult?

I'm 41 weeks pregnant and my baby slightly back to back, will this make labour difficult?

Yes, but talk to OB: Talk to your OB md about the baby's position and the labor plans. (induction or natural). At 41 weeks, a birthing plan is probably available via your OB md to "jump start" your process or a c/s may be contemplated.

41 weeks 4th pregnancy just lost muscus plug am I likely to labour quicker made it to hospital with 3rd with 3 hrs to spare?

Hard to know: Generally just as fast. As you are 41 weeks and it is time to deliver, I would have an assessment. All the best. Are you close to hospital?

At 41 weeks and 4 da: Days u should be delivered either vaginally or by c-section! And now u are 41-6 too much chance for a bad outcome if baby stays inside, and everyone has to be delivered by 42 weeks no matter what, I do not let my pts go past 40 weeks and my pts do not want to, there are advantages if u have a csection like not stretching out the vagina or tears that can damage the rectum or shoulder dystocia!

I am 41 weeks pregnant. Had a cervical sweep and was 1-2cm dilated. Could I go into labour soon? I am not in any pain

Labor: You are still minimally dilated, but at 41 weeks you can certainly go into labor at any time. Most times obstetricians won't let you go past 42 weeks. So you should have your baby soon. Good luck!

What to do if I'm 37 weeks pregnant tomorrow, signs of labor?

Be happy!: At 37 weeks your baby is fully developed and it is perfectly acceptable to go into labor now. Be sure to let your OB know if you are going into labor so he/she can take your whole pregnancy history into account and make recommendations!

25 weeks pregnant with second child and nesting could this be the sign of early labor?

This early on I do: Not think that your nesting behaviors are necessarily heralding premature labor.

Tmi. Change in discharge 38wks. White creamy discharge since the beginning of pregnancy. Since this morning it has been clear & oily? --sign of labor?

The baby is coming: I would not call it labor, but your uterus is getting ready for labor. I believe this change in discharge is a sign that you can smile about. Soon you will be a mother. Congratulations.

What are labor signs at 38 weeks pregnant?

Early contractions: You will probably feel the baby "drop" which means it is getting lower in the pelvis, in preparation for childbirth. You probably will have intermittent contractions, known as Braxton-Hicks contractions, again in preparation for childbirth. As the time draws nearer to delivery the contractions will become stronger and more frequent.

38weeeks pregnant today and can't stop pooping. This has gone on for 2 days now and people say its a sign of labor? Is that true?

38weeeks pregnant today and can't stop pooping. This has gone on for 2 days now and people say its a sign of labor? Is that true?

No: Having bowel movements is not a sign of labor, but as the baby grow larger in your uterus ("belly"), the growing fetus can push on your bowel, giving you the sensation and feeling/need to defecate. Best wishes.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and having clumpy brown watery discharge. Is this a sign of labor?

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and having clumpy brown watery discharge. Is this a sign of labor?

Could mean more: Brown discharge is usually old blood. A mucusy discharge that is mixed with a brown discharge can be the mucus plug coming out. 2 important points: first, you are under 37wks or preterm & preterm labor needs to be ruled-out. Second, if the discharge is more watery, an OB doc needs to make sure you didn't break your water, so you should call your OB and been evaluated at your hospital.

LAbor: Symtoms of preterm labor or labor are: uterine contractions, pelvic cramps, abdominal pain, back pain, bloody or mocuos discharge, frequent contractions that don't go away with rest. Hope this helps. Vomiting sometimes is caused due to the excessive pain. If in doubt call your obgyn asap.

I'm 33 weeks pregnant. My husband is away I need to know signs of labor so he could be here by the time of delivery?

Rhythmic contraction: Rhythmic contractions which are timed in decreasing intervals of less than 10 minutes. I am surprised that your treating OB MD has not addressed this topic with you already. Good luck with getting husband home in time as sometimes the baby takes the "express train".
