ok... i am 36+1 with my second baby but i forget everhthing from tbe first time. i have an excercise ball which helps relax me and i was boincing on it for around an hour 2 days ago. i noticed after that that the baby had dropped. i havent lost my mucus plug yet (not that iv noticed anyway). since baby dropped, i have felt very sick but no vomiting, today i have bad lower back pain. i have had frequent bowel movement the past 4 days (maybe 3/4 times a day). i phoned my midwife who practically said to stop complaining as i was still early and to just put up with it. has anyone else had these symptoms who can give me some personal advice? thanks ladies x

Your midwife does not sound pleasent at all, She should be more understanding then that. But besides that, labour could be near but the only way to tell is if you start having contractions, water breaks or you loose your plug, and even then it could be hard to tell. I heard that feeling sick can be a sign that its near but how near you ask?... no idea. Good luck :)!. I can't wait to be that closer. You are still only 36 weeks which is not considered full-term so anything can happen.
