5cm dilated all day I been nausiated, I'm hungry but then I can't eat I'm so thirsty but barely drink? Is this a sign ill be going into labor soon?

Not necessarily: These are not the usual signs of labor.

But if you aren't drinking you can get dehydrated and cause false contractions.

It does sound like you are close since you are dilated to 5 cm.

If you can't get yourself to drink you need to be seen by your doc.

Good luck with your delivery. ...Read more

Please ask your OB: Any regular contractions or increased discharge, if u and baby is ok if u go into labor before 37 weeks then your doc will try to stop it, if your water breaks then it won't be stopped, so if u are worried call now so premature labor can be prevented rather than treated, and I always get an ultrasound on all of my pts between 34-36 weeks so I know what is going on, and don't go past your due date. ...Read more

They said she could have the baby at any time. What are some signs that she could be going in to labor?

Many different: She may feel less discomfort under ribs as baby drops. May be peeing more often as more pressure on bladder. Then there is "nesting" - that spurt of energy before labor ensues where she just wants to clean everything in site. Can also lose mucous plug - kind of a sticky, gooey, sometimes slightly bloody discharge. And finally there are contractions! Now it's real! ...Read more

What does it mean when the baby drops? I heard that this is a sign that labor has started, but what does it mean?

What does it mean when the baby drops? I heard that this is a sign that labor has started, but what does it mean?

Your: Your fetus’s head tends to hang out in the upper part of the pelvis until the baby gets close to labor, at which point, the fetal head drops into the lower part of the pelvis. The doctor or midwife can feel this on external exam, because the head is no longer wobbling around above the fetal bone but has dropped down below it. It can also be assessed on pelvic exam as “station, ” meaning how far down the baby has dropped. You may also be able to tell if the baby has dropped because your belly may change shape.

So what does it mean if the baby drops? Usually it means the baby is getting ready for labor, but the amount of time between when the baby drops and when labor begins varies. If the baby drops prematurely, you may be put on bed rest, but that still doesn’t mean labor is inevitable. However, when the baby drops at full term, in combination with painful contractions that become regular or a broken water bag, the time is coming. Keep in mind that mothers who have given birth many times may go into labor without having the baby drop until the cervix is almost fully dilated. But if the baby drops and it’s your first, it’s a good sign that the time to meet your baby is approaching. ...Read more
