Babies who are only moderately premature usually ...Read more
I am 33 weeks 2cm dilated and 20% thinned. I got a positive ffn test. How accurate is it that I will go into labor early?
19-30% false positiv: A20%thining and 2cmdilated is not noses scarily an indication that you will deliver early. If you have not had any episodes of premature labor. you could remain this way until term provided you don't have regular contractions prior to that time.
Can pushing while pooping durning pregnancy hurt the baby? Is it possible to go into labor early because of the pushing?

How can I help myself go into labor I'm still in early labor because I'm 2 1/2cm dilated and 70% efface?
Be patient.: Every labor pattern is different. Good luck!
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. C-section is considered as the condition may interfere w/ vaginal delivery.
Not necessarily: Be prepared for your hospital stay however do not hold your breath. Some people require induction at 41 weeks keep track of your baby activity then check with your own doctor for his/her experience
The week before...: The week before the due date, many women go into labor. The due date is an estimated date of delivery, but babies are very often born a few days before or a few days after their due dates (it is not very predictable exactly when the mom will go into labor).
My dr. Said she can feel my baby's head very low and thinks I will go into labor soon? In a few days, I'm not dilated yet either. Is this true?
"Lightening": No, lightening is not something that will appear in a thunderstorm but is something that "strikes" most pregnant women at 35+ weeks- the baby dropping further down in the pelvis in preparation for impending labor within 4 weeks. So, the "labor storm" will soon follow when the "rain" (bag of waters) comes down.
3cm dilated 80% Effaced +1 station, 36 weeks. Is there an estimated time for when I will go into labor. I know It's possible to go 40wks, just curious?
Cervical change: 3 cm dilation and 80% effacement is significant and there is a risk of labor at any time. Every additional day that you carry your baby is beneficial to the baby. It would be best for your baby is you did not deliver before 40 weeks. You should limit activity as much as possible and see your doctor frequently. If your water breaks prior to starting labor pains, go to the hospital immediately.
I'm almost positive I'm losing my mucous plug. I'm 37 weeks on thursday. How soon does that mean l will go into labor?
Soon...maybe: Usually within 2 days is what we're taught... After doing this for over 20 years, I've learned that the wait can be much longer. If it's truly a mucous plug from cervical change & with increasing contractions; you may deliver within the week. But, remember, your baby hasn't read the same books & will come when it's ready! ;).
I am 38+4 wks, dilated to a 3, effaced at 60%. I got a membrane sweep today. How good are my chances that I will go into labor this weekend?
Soon: There really are no guarantees. But the team is doing all they can to stimulate this naturally.
Fetus in control.: You cannot force labor onset by yourself; in fact, we now know that the fetus decides when labor starts in most circumstanes (barring trauma, abruption, incompetent cervix). Take it easy and maintain a positive attitude - if you are near your due date labor can occur anytime now. Best of luck!
One third: About one third of women with uncomplicated pregnancies go into labor at 40 weeks (on or very close to their due date) All others go into labor anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks.
