Likely labor: This sounds like early labor, which is usually not such a problem at 36 weeks of pregnancy. You might certainly have a urinary tract infection or virus. I am sure that your obstetrician would be happy to see you and sort this out with you. Good luck! ...Read more

Im 3 days from my due date and I have been having very painful heartburn is it a sign of labor or not I have already lost my mucus plug?

Im 3 days from my due date and I have been having very painful heartburn is it a sign of labor or not I have already lost my mucus plug?

Could be both..: Labor or contractions typically cause cramping pain, often mid to lower abdomen, for a few minutes at a time, then eases up and the cycle repeats over and over until the baby is born. Heartburn or reflux often cause more constant pain and lasts much longer. It is not unreasonable to try some tums/pepcid, but being 3 days before due date, and loss of mucus plug, chance of labor is high. Good luck. ...Read more
