Mucus plug: is a sign of impending labor. The length of time between loss of the mucus plug and beginning of labor varies greatly and is unpredictable. It can be anywhere between a few minutes to several days between seeing the mucus blog and labor. A slight amount of spotting (known as bloody show) is another sign of impending labor. A woman should go to the hospital immediately if her water breaks. ...Read more
Is severe nausea late in pregnancy (close to 37 weeks) a sign labor could be near? I heard it was but want other opinions.
Is constant pain in lumbar left side normal in 40th week of pregnancy? No signs of active labor. Pain doesn't allow for waking and sitting.
Not normal but seen: Constant back pain limiting basic activities of daily living (e.g. Walking or sitting) isn't normal; not even at 40 week of pregnancy. The weight gain, the "basketball" & surge in hormone preparing pelvic bones for delivery may contribute to the problem. Constant severe activity limiting pain should be discussed with ob.

I'm in 37th week of pregnancy, my vagina started to ache. Is it normal and a sign of pre-term labor?
Not usually: Vaginal aching is typically an indication of pressure from pregnancy, not usually preterm labor. Labor pain is cyclical.... It comes in waves and lasts for about 60 seconds or so. The vaginal pain you describe is more typically a stabbing, aching pain that is constant. Sometimes a warm bath at this stage in pregnancy can feel good. ...Read more
Im 35 weeks pregnant and 3 cm dilated. I lost my mucus plug last night. Will i be going into labor soon? This is not my first pregnancy.
Signs of preterm labor i'm 24 years old and 27 weeks pregnant. I think i'm having normal aches and pains of pregnancy, but need to make sure.
Braxton hicks (5-6 a day)
hip pain (constant)
heaviness in abdomen and thighs (off and on for weeks now)
All : All of the above symptoms you described are common at your stage of pregnancy. However, my rule of thumb for any pregnant patient is to contact your ob/gyn if you have any concerns, even the slightest. You can call your doctor's office 24/7 and there will always be someone on call to take your call. If you have any of the following signs of preterm labor present to OB triage right away: contractions that occur every 10 min. Or more frequently leakage of fluid or blood from your vagina increase in pelvic pressure intense backache cramps( like your period) best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy! ...Read more
No: The best sign of that is increasing frequency of contractions or increasing pressure down low. ...Read more
