Sharp brief pains in abdomen, bearable pain off and on in ribs, nausea, fatigue, more bowel movements and not extremely frequent urination (but more than usual), back aches. I'm 36 weeks along. Haven't had an appointment yet, so not sure if dilating any. Does this sound like baby is coming relatively soon?

Its never silly thing to ask questions and to keep yourself informed. What are mom and new moms to be for.

Your welcome and don't worry about the baby not moving all the time. Its very cramped and is soon looking for a exit.lol

You will do fine. Just listen to your body and your baby will let you know when its time. Congratulations on your new baby!!

That's something that kind of confuses me! There are times the baby feels like she's getting lower and then there are times like I can't feel her positioning at all! I get really worried but then I'll feel her kicks in my upper middle abdomen.
Thank you sooo much for your reply!! It helps me out a lot!:)

Sounds like Bracksin hicks. I had too and it felt like the baby was going to fall out. The sharp pain in the ribs is usually baby trying to make room where there is none. The nausea and fatigue are the result of frequent movement and the pooping and peeing is from the pressure that is bearing down. Just take your time and breath with each contraction, if its not time they will pass. If they are more then 10 mins apart then its not time. But if you want to feel safe, go get yourself an appointment. Good luck!!
