I'm 37 weeks n 2 days an I have a lot of pain like my baby is bawling up an I get this weird feeling in my vagina and sometimes I get the feeling that my baby is trying to break my water or either I get the feeling like she's trying to punch through my vagina. I get pain between my legs when I walk sometimes. What is it or/an what should I do....

Hi Brittany,
I had my 1st child at exactly 37 weeks. The balling up feeling is probably contractions, either Braxton Hicks or the real deal! Your vagina is probably dilating to allow the little one to be born very soon.
I suggest lying on your side on your bed & calling your doctor with the symptoms you described. Start timing what sounds like contractions, are they coming frequently, like every 5 minutes & lasting for about 1 minute each? If so, that's good evidence of a soon arrival. However, these are approximations, so you don't have to wait for those exact numbers. If your contractions become very painful, have someone drive you to the hospital & call up your doctor or midwife.
To help cope through the contraction pain breathe deeply, inhaling through your nose & slowly exhale through your mouth.
Blessings & best wishes!
