Hi, I am due in a week and 1 day. I am certain I lost my mucous plug last week. Doc told me I am 2cm dilated, but I was told that at my appointment which was on Sept 4 so I don't know if there has been any changes. I will be finding out at my next appt which is this coming Tues. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I have dilated some more because I am sick of waiting and it is getting quite uncomfortable for me.
Anyway I was just wondering what contractions are/were like that you ladies may have experienced? Was it like cramps but intense? Did it feel sharp, and around your lower stomach near the pelvis area?
I've been getting those for some time now but it isn't regular. It comes and goes real fast. Doesn't really linger much, maybe for like 2 or 3 mins. So I am not sure if it's just a normal thing, or if I'm actually having contractions.
I'd love to hear your experiences, ladies. I'd appreciate it a lot! It'd maybe put my mind to ease too. So describe it in any way the best you can, please!
Thanks in advance :)
